Cubs Try To Even Series Against Reds At Wrigley

After a disappointing loss on Friday afternoon, the Cubs will try to even their series against the Reds at Wrigley Field. They'll send Casey Coleman to the mound against the Reds' Bronson Arroyo.

Coleman has been uneven on the year and has had only one truly great start, coming at Colorado on April 16th. On the season he's 1-2 with a 7.36 ERA and 1.96 WHIP. He's started one game against Cincinnati and also made one relief appearance against them. Across those two games, he's got a 6.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP.

Pitching for the Reds will be Bronson Arroyo. Arroyo has been off to a so-so start on the 2011 season. He's currently 3-3 with a 4.17 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. In his career against the Cubs, Arroyo is 9-7 with a 2.80 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. Marlon Byrd has hit him well, going 5-for-16 with one double and one home run.

The weather in Chicago is expected to be cloudy with a chance of showers and a game time temperature in the high-50s. First pitch is at 12:10 P.M., CDT, and the game will be televised on FOX.
