The Chicago Cubs (3-10) lost the last five games of their road trip an return home on Friday to take on the Cincinnati Reds (5-8) in a three-game weekend set at Wrigley Field. The Cubs are hungry for a win, but so are the Reds, who have also yet to win a series this season. Chris Volstad takes the mound for the Chicago, and he is looking for his first victory as a member of the team. Meanwhile, the next win for the Reds franchise will be the organization's 10,000th. In other words, there are plenty of hunger mouths to feed, but only one team can win on Friday.
