Return Home Can’t Help Cubs; Drop Sixth Straight

The weather is miserable in the Chicagoland area today, but it’s not as bad as the Cubs, they are ice-cold.  Thanks to a rocky outing from Chris Volstad, and some bad defensive work, stop me if you’ve heard this before, the Cubs have dropped their sixth in a row.  Right from the hop it was apparent that the Cubs probably didn’t have a chance today.  Before the sparse crowd could even get settled the Reds were up 4-0 in the top of the first inning against Volstad.  Things never really got better for the Cubs as every time they tried to mount a comeback the Reds were able to tack on to their lead.  When it was all said and done, the Reds walk out with a 9-4 victory, in which the Cubs almost had more errors (3) than runs (4) and hits (5).  Full Recap after the jump.
