Reds turn to Graham Ashcraft in bid to sweep Cubs

The first two months of the season have been a period of extremes for Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Graham Ashcraft, who has struggled in his last four starts.

The right-handed Ashcraft (2-3, 5.57 ERA) hopes to return to his early-season form on Sunday when the visiting Reds look to complete a sweep of a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs.

Ashcraft, 25, fared well in his first six starts. He was 2-0 with a 2.00 ERA during that stretch before going 0-3 with a 12.98 ERA in his next four outings. He allowed seven runs on 10 hits -- including two homers -- over five innings in an 8-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday.
