The fans at Wrigley Field will be treated to a game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago Cubs when they take their seats on Saturday.

The Reds will give the ball to starter Jackson Stephens in this one. Right hander Stephens is 2-0 this season with a 3.86 ERA.

Starting this game for the Cubs will be Jon Lester. The left hander has a 4.46 ERA to go along with a 12-8 record this season.

Stephens earned the win in his major league debut against the Cubs on July 1 by allowing three runs over five innings while striking out eight, although he surrendered a pair of homers. The 23-year-old is coming off the most impressive performance of his brief career, limiting Boston to one run on two hits over six innings in a no-decision. Stephens has permitted five homers in his three starts.

Lester rebounded from a woeful effort at Tampa Bay with six innings of one-run ball in St. Louis on Monday for his third quality start in four turns. “I have to get back to being me,” he said afterward. “I have to get back to putting hitters in a defensive mode as opposed to trying to pitch to a scouting report from pitch one. Lester was hammered by the Reds for nine runs in 1 2/3 innings on Aug. 17.

Oddsmakers opened the Cubs as 185-moneyline favorites versus the Reds, while the game’s total opened at 8½.

With the National League Central title secured and nothing to play for, the Chicago Cubs still provided some drama for the fans in the final series of the regular season. Ian Happ’s three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth was the difference in the Cubs’ 5-4 win over the visiting Cincinnati Reds, who look to even the series Saturday afternoon.

Happ’s decisive blast in Friday’s 5-4 victory was his second homer in as many days and his 24th of the year — the second-highest total in NL history for a rookie switch hitter (behind Pittsburgh’s Josh Bell with 26). Winners of three in a row, Chicago used a patchwork lineup for the second straight game after clinching the division title Wednesday night, but more regulars are expected to see action Saturday. Reds first baseman Joey Votto reached a personal milestone with his third 100-RBI season — and first since 2011 — while extending his hitting streak to 10 games. Cincinnati rookie Jackson Stephens will make his fourth career start when he opposes Cubs left-handed Jon Lester, making his final tuneup before the NL Division series.

In their last action, Chicago was a 5-4 winner on the road against the Reds. Bettors on Chicago at -171 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (9) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
