The Chicago Cubs will go against the Cincinnati Reds in MLB action in Great American Ball Park, OH, on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, at 6:40 PM ET.


Chicago prevailed in the first game of their series with the Brewers and had a lead after seven innings on Saturday before losing and being thoroughly defeated on Sunday at Wrigley Field.


The Cubs, who were 1-2 going into Monday, will try to pick up a win here. On Sunday, Chicago had two hits apiece from Patrick Wisdom (two runs, two RBI) and Nico Hoerner (run), but the pitching struggled.


The North Siders’ losing effort featured two home runs from Wisdom (his first and second).


Jameson Taillon (0-1) suffered the defeat in his first start for the Cubs, going four innings while giving up three runs on seven hits, one walk, and three strikeouts.


A 3-2 game became an 8-2 victory thanks to a horrific bullpen performance by Julian Merryweather, who gave up five runs on five hits, two walks, and no strikeouts in two-thirds of an inning.


In this game, Cubs pitcher Hayden Wesneski makes his first start of the 2023 season.


After joining Chicago in a trade that brought reliever Scott Effross to the Yankees at the trade deadline the previous year, he made six appearances, four of which were starts.


In 32 innings of work, he had a 3-2 record, a 2.18 ERA, a 0.939 WHIP, seven walks, and 33 strikeouts. He had a 3-1 record in spring training, a 2.12 ERA, a 1.118 WHIP, six walks, and 22 strikeouts in 17 innings pitched.


Wesneski is making his third career start and second appearance versus the Reds. In 11 innings pitched against them, he is 1-1 with a 0.82 ERA, a 0.727 WHIP, two walks, and 14 strikeouts.


  • The Chi Cubs are 2-5 SU in their last 7 matches.

Chicago Cubs vs Cincinnati Reds Predictions 4/4/2023


Cincinnati triumphed on Sunday after recovering from a setback in their opening game to win the last two games of their set against the Pirates at home.


Despite having a less-than-stellar team, the Reds came into Monday 2-1 on the season and are hoping to keep winning.


On Sunday, Cincinnati defeated the Pirates thanks to two singles from Jonathan India (run), TJ Friedl (run, RBI), and Jason Vosler (run, RBI). Vosler and Friedl each hit their maiden home runs as the Reds prevailed.


The winning pitcher, Graham Ashcraft (1-0), pitched seven shutout innings, surrendering just one run on four hits, one walk, and six strikeouts. In a 1-2-3 ninth, Alexis Diaz struck out one to get his maiden save.


In this game, Reds pitcher Luis Cessa will take the mound for the first time. In 46 appearances, 10 of which he started, he had a 4-4 record, a 4.57 ERA, a 1.289 WHIP, 28 walks, and 59 strikeouts in 80.2 innings pitched.


Cessa had three appearances, including two starts, during spring training. He had no records, a 4.50 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, two walks, and five strikeouts in six innings pitched.


Cessa starts this game against the Cubs for the third time in his career.


  • The total went UNDER in 13 of Cincinnati’s last 20 matches.
  • The Cincinnati Reds are 5-2 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • The Cincinnati Reds are 6-2 SU in their last 8 matches at home.

Chicago Cubs vs Cincinnati Reds. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. Wesneski, who was acquired in the trade that sent Effross to the Bronx, pitched exceptionally effectively in his little action last season.


He pitched well in both of his appearances against the Reds last season, gaining the victory with five shutout frames in his big league debut before suffering the discouraging defeat in his last start of the year.


The lineup for Cincinnati isn’t very strong, as we witnessed when they struggled to score runs against the Pirates over the weekend.


On paper, Chicago’s lineup appears to be superior to Cincinnati’s, and Wesneski appears to have a stronger arm right now than Cessa.


The Cubs should win this game, so follow them on the road. The Chicago Cubs will win to a predicted score of 7-4.
