The Cubs admit they have to play better baseball but gave credit to the Reds for taking the first three games of the series this weekend. Cincinnati is now 28-30 under interim manager Jim Riggleman, after starting the season 3-15. Joe Maddon was asked about losing 3 straight to a last place team: “We went 0-6 on a road trip last year. It's called baseball. It's under the category of baseball but while you're saying that don't denigrate Cincinnati. This is an improved ball club and their pitching is way improved.” The Cubs have scored a total of 7 runs in the first three games, in a ballpark they usually put up big numbers in.
