Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Friday when the Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds meet at Great American Ball Park.

Mike Montgomery will be the starting pitcher for the Cubs on this day. Left hander Montgomery is 1-4 this season with a 2.03 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Scott Feldman who starts for the Reds. Right hander Feldman is 6-5 with a 4.07 ERA so far this season.

Montgomery has posted back-to-back quality starts, and he has not allowed more than three runs in any of his four outings since moving into the rotation. The 27-year-old gave up three runs in the first inning of a loss Sunday at Miami before shutting out the Marlins for the next five frames and recording a season-high six strikeouts. Montgomery has made six relief appearances versus the Reds, including two this season, allowing three runs – all in his last appearance against them on May 17 – over 6 2/3 innings.

Feldman has recorded quality starts in two straight outings and three of his last four, and he has been victorious in four of his last five decisions. The 34-year-old won at Washington on Sunday, limiting the NL’s best offense to two runs and seven hits over seven innings. Feldman faced the Cubs for the first time May 17 in Chicago and was dinged for seven runs (five earned) in 2 2/3 innings to take the loss.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 105-moneyline favorites versus the Reds, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Chicago Cubs’ youth movement helped the franchise snap a 108-year championship drought last season, and now the Cubs are counting on a new wave of prospects. Chicago’s injury-depleted lineup is loaded with young players as the Cubs begin a three-game road series against the last-place Cincinnati Reds on Friday.

The Cubs are just one game above .500, but they’re also just one game behind Milwaukee in the National League Central and are coming off a rousing 5-4 win at Washington in which they scored three runs in the top of the ninth inning to split the four-game series. They did so with three starters on the shelf, as Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist are on the disabled list and reigning NL MVP Kris Bryant is day-to-day with a sprained ankle. “It’s good to see the freshmen and sophomores coming through,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters. “The frosh had a good day. They have to know they can do that.” The Reds had won three of four following a stretch of 13 losses in 14 games before being routed 11-3 in the finale of their three-game set against visiting Milwaukee on Thursday.

Last time out for Cincinnati, they were a 11-3 loser as they battled the Brewers on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Brewers at 100 were rewarded, while the 14 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Chicago was a 5-4 winner in its last match on the road against the Nationals. They won as +103 underdogs, while the total score of 9 made winners of UNDER bettors.
