CUBS CENTRAL
(25-14)
1st; +2.5
Streak: W W W

CHC 3 – CIN 1
Hendrick’s a master of pitch command.

The Reds demonstrated Tuesday with weak swings and weak contact.

Kyle’s straight fire emoji right now.

And a career-high 3 hits at the plate — including the game-winning RBI.

Hendricks since allowing 7 ER in 5.0 IP at ARZ:

IP ER Hits Walks Ks
STL 9.0 0 4 0 3
MIA 8.0 0 5 0 7
CIN 8.0 1 3 1 7

Rizzo has sat consecutive games with a tight back.

With Caratini injured it’s KB at 1B.

And he’s played well filling in defensively.

Bryant: (3-5, R)

Reached safely in career-best 23-straight games.

Longest current streak in MLB.

Longest streak for a Cub since Zobrist (25) in 2017.

Báez: (2-5)

Career-high 12-game hitting streak.

Longest streak by a Cub this season.

26 extra base hits second-most in MLB: (Bell, 27).

Albert: (1-4, R)

Another web gem in CF.

A long run and leaping grab to rob Derek Dietrich of extras in the 5th.

Almora has gold in his glove if he can stay in the lineup.

Heyward: (0-4, BB, K)

Has led off in 5 of last 6 games.

Cishek 3/4 in save opportunities.

WHEN YOU’RE HOT YOU’RE HOT

Cubs in May (10-2).

Won 22 of 28.

Best record in the NL (25-14)

Last 5 seasons vs. Reds: (52-25)

The best record by any team against a division opponent during that span.
