Cubs' Lackey hopes to hold down Reds again

CINCINNATI -- Right-hander John Lackey will face the Cincinnati Reds for the second consecutive start on Tuesday when the Chicago Cubs open a three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

Lackey hopes to build off the success he had against Cincinnati on Wednesday when he did not allow a home run for the first time since July 25 and for just the fifth time in his 23 starts this season. That is no simple feat against the Reds, who feature five players with 20 or more home runs, tying a single-season franchise record set in 2008 and 1956.

The Cubs (66-57) are leading the National League Central by a slim 2 1/2-game margin over the second-place Milwaukee Brewers heading into the Tuesday opener of a three-game series at Great American Ball Park.
