The Cubs quietly found their swing, it hasn't helped Darvish yet but I think it will today. Cubs at home for the W.60%

Chicago scores nearly five runs a game at Wrigley this season and while Mahle has been rock steady, for whatever reason the Reds dont score runs for him. Darvish has pitched better over his last few starts but -145 just feels a little rich today as I thought this line would have been -120 or -125. Chicago is the slight favorite here but at +135 money you have to play the Reds as a the value bet in this spot.70%

Chicago Sun-Times: 'That's entertainment,' says Joe Maddon after Cubs top Reds 8-6
The Cubs flipped the script in more ways than one Saturday.
In a game that saw six combined home runs and 25 hits, the Cubs used a small-ball approach to secure the winning runs. The much maligned bullpen, reeling from overuse, came through in a pinch.
And Yu Darvish, having been unable to pitch late into a game the past two seasons, found his way to the mound in the eighth inning of a wild 8-6 Cubs victory over the Reds.
"That's entertainment, guys," Joe Maddon said as he made his way into the postgame press conference.
Redleg Nation: Reds Recap: 14 hits isn't enough as Reds lose late to the Cubs
The ball was flying in Chicago on Saturday, the pitching struggled on both sides, and in the end the Cubs came out on top to even the 3-game series at 1-game each.The Offense
The Reds notched 14 hits and they added 3 more walks, but it wasn't enough on this day. Joey Votto, Eugenio Suarez, and Tucker Barnhart all had 3-hit games. Barnhart would get the star of the game if they handed it out as he fell a triple shy of the cycle. His home run in the 2nd inning gave the Reds a 2-0 lead and was his 5th of the year.
CSN Chicago: Cubs ride unconventional pitching performances to 8-6 win over the Reds
Before Thursday's game against the Phillies, Cubs' manager Joe Maddon was asked if, given the current state of their bullpen, Tyler Chatwood could see some innings as the closer.
"I think he's amenable to it..." Maddon responded. "... the big thing with him is throwing strikes. If he does that -- his stuff is that electric -- we'll use him any time. As he gets well from [throwing 4 innings on Wednesday night] it'll probably a solid two days, maybe three, before he's ready to go again. We'll see - we'll see that night needs. I'm not afraid of it by any means.
Red Reporter: Late Eugenio Suarez homer leads Reds to 6-5 comeback win over Cubs
The blown 5-run lead in Wednesday's 11-9 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers was deflating in its own right. So, when all signs pointed to the Cincinnati Reds losing late to the Chicago Cubs despite having rallied back from down 4-0 in the very next game, it's safe to say we were shaking all fists at the cursed Baseball Gods.
It's a very, very good thing the Reds have Eugenio Suarez on their team, however.
Suarez stepped to the plate with a runner on and the Reds down a run in the Top of the 9th, and promptly mauled a meatball from Cubs closer Steve Cishek into the cool May air, sending it nearly 450 feet to flip the scoreboard and give the Reds a very well-earned, much-needed win over their NL Central rivals.
