The Cubs get right back to action tonight in Cincinnati against the Reds. Coming off a tough loss in Philadelphia the Cubs looks to continue their solid play against a team that they lost 2 out of 3 to at Wrigley Field earlier this season. Hopefully the change in Month will cool off Jay Bruce who is on fire right now. He hit .476 last week with four home runs and ten RBI’s to go along with a 1.685 OPS. Ryan Dempster will be part of the Cubs pitching attach that looks to shut down Bruce and company. Dempster is scheduled to come off the DL in time to make his start on Thursday morning to close out the series. Bryan LaHair looks to stay hot and clutch at the plate after finishing off a great series in Philly, and really a great month to start the season. After splitting a four game set in Philadelphia the Cubs could make this trip an absolute success if they can take 2 out of 3 from the Reds this week, a sweep would be fun too, go Cubs!
