Cubs Hoping Randy Wells Can Shut Down Reds @ Wrigley Field – Saturday 8/7/10

Posted on 07 August 2010 by Lou

Randy Wells is looking to beat the Cincinnati Reds for the 2nd time this season.  Back on July 3rd, Wells limited the Reds to just 1 ER on 5 hits and 1 walk in 7 2/3 innings in a 3-1 Cubs win at Wrigley Field.  A lot has happened this year, as the Cubs have fallen well out of playoffs contention and Wells has had an inconsistent season.  Wells has a 5-9 record with a 1.43 WHIP and 4.40 ERA, well off of the numbers he put up in his solid rookie campaign in 2009 when he went 12-10 with a 1.28 WHIP and 3.05 ERA.

The game is scoreless right now in the top of the 3rd inning – check that.  Wells gave up a double and a single to the 1st 2 batters in the inning and the Reds now lead 1-0…
