Reds at Cubs — October 1, 2017

Well, it’s October and the Reds (67-94) are still playing baseball! After another frustrating season for the ol’ Redlegs, game 162 is here. Even in another 90-loss year, it’s always a little sad when the baseball season comes to an end. And while it’s been another frustrating campaign at times, there have certainly been some …

Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds preview, Sunday 10/1, 2:20 CT

Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds preview, Sunday 10/1, 2:20 CT

The Cubs go for their fifth straight win. This is the third year that Major League Baseball will play all its final-day games at (approximately) the same starting time. All games today begin between 2:05 p.m. CT and 2:20 p.m. CT, the latter, the starting time at Wrigley Field Sunday afternoon. This is done so if there are any meaningful games on the season’s last day, no team will have an advantage in setting lineups or pitching moves. Today, though, that won’t matter. All of the postseason positions have been decided; the last were settled Saturday when the Red Sox clinched the A.L....

Cubs 9, Reds 0: The Schwarber and Rivera show

Cubs 9, Reds 0: The Schwarber and Rivera show

Now that was fun! It was, again, great fun to watch a September game at Wrigley Field that didn’t mean anything, but know that there is meaningful baseball to come in less than a week’s time. The Cubs emptied their bench in spring-training fashion and plenty of them got a chance to hit and run around the bases. Kyle Schwarber and Rene Rivera homered in a 9-0 blowout of the Reds, who couldn’t throw strikes or, seemingly, catch balls hit into the tough late-afternoon autumn sun. First, Schwarber, with Willson Contreras on base in the second inning: Kyle Schwarber getting the Cubs'...
