Cubs Vs. Reds: Randy Wells Returns As Cubs Look To Take Series

When Randy Wells failed to make the Chicago Cubs out of Spring Training, the front office said that they needed him stretched out in Triple-A and ready to come up to the big leagues at any moment to make a start. Well, it took a little more than two weeks for that contingency plan to be put into action, as Ryan Dempster's move to the disabled list opened up a spot for Wells, who will make the start on Sunday vs. the Cincinnati Reds.

The start isn't unimportant, either, as the Cubs will have a chance to secure their first series win of 2012 after they defeated the Reds yesterday by the score of 6-1. Wells made 23 starts for the Cubs last year but had a hard time finding his form, posting a 4.99 ERA while giving up 23 homers. He'll be opposed by Johnny Cueto, who has been stellar so far in 2012, giving up only four earned runs in 19 innings to go along with 12 strikeouts.

Game date/time: Sunday, April 22, 1:20 p.m. CT

Location: Wrigley Field, Chicago, Ill.

TV: WGN
