Re: Reds vs Cubs 8/14/13 -- A sweep day at Wrigley?
On Wednesday, Cincinnati will have to solve Chicago southpaw Chris Rusin, who blanked St. Louis over six frames in his last outing. In five starts this season, the 26-year-old has posted a 2-1 record and a 3.08 ERA.
"With him, when he throws strikes, he's able to get back in the count with a strike and throw a quality pitch to get back in the count," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "His ball can move so much, he gets some swings and misses at balls quite a way out of the zone. He makes the ball move and keeps the ball down."
Nice to have a sweep against 3 quality pitchers, on the road.
