Cubs-Reds Preview

(AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds are starting to show signs of life after a brutal two-week funk.

Cincinnati tries to keep rolling in Thursday's series finale against the visiting Chicago Cubs, who could get All-Star first baseman Anthony Rizzo back.

The Reds (64-69) have followed a 2-12 stretch by winning three of four after holding on for a 7-5 victory Wednesday. Skip Schumaker went 2 for 4 with two RBIs and Chris Heisey hit a pinch-hit home run as Cincinnati improved to 10-5 against Chicago this year.
