Cubs Vs. Reds Score Update: Two Cubs Errors Give Help Chicago To 4-0 Deficit

The Chicago Cubs, looking to break an early season five-game losing streak, have started poorly against the Cincinnati Reds on Friday afternoon. Not only did they allow four runs in the first inning, they did so in style:

Misplays from SS Starlin Castro and CF Marlon Byrd helped force Cubs SP Chris Volstad to throw 41 pitches in the first inning. The Cubs mounted a threat in the bottom of the inning with a Castro single and an error from Reds SS Zack Cozart, but SP Homer Bailey was able to weave out of trouble and kept the score at 4-0, Reds lead.

Volstad regained control in the second inning, retiring the heart of the Reds lineup with just 7 more pitches. The Cubs enter the third inning, trailing 4-0.
