#Cubs Haren starts vs Reds in Cincy
Dan Haren is slated to start Tuesday night for the Cubs in the first of three against the Reds in Cincinnati. Here’s the lineup:
La Stella 2B
The Reds have had more than 24 hours of rain delays this season, and there is rain in the forecast. If you’re coming to Great American Ball Park, all I can tell you is they will try to play.
The Cubs have held their opponents scoreless for 21 consecutive innings in winning the last two games. They have 20 shutouts this season, the most since 1969. The last time the Cubs posted three straight shutouts was July 1992.
The Cubs are 40-19 since late July.
Haren is competing for a spot in the Cubs postseason rotation. The right-hander was skipped the last time through the rotation because of an off-day. He allowed three runs (one earned) over 4 1/3 innings in his most recent start, a no-decision against the Cardinals.
