With three meaningless games left before the Chicago Cubs kick off what they -- and their championship-starved -- fan base hope is a historic playoff run, manager Joe Maddon had to assess some in-house drama as the team prepared to play the Reds in Cincinnati during the final series of the regular season. Marcus Semien Jersey .Chicago locked down its playoff berth on Sept. 16, and since then, Maddon has been liberal with his rest and substitution patterns.The changes rankled some of his regulars, most recently Jake Arrieta and Miguel Montero, who made their feelings known after an 8-4 loss to the Pirates on Wednesday night.Maddon opted to pull Montero in the fifth inning and replaced with him rookie Willson Contreras. The Pirates scored three runs in the inning, chasing Arrieta.It felt like a spring training game from the get-go, said Arrieta, who allowed seven runs on 10 hits, both career highs, in five innings.Despite the gripes, Maddon plans to employ similar methods this weekend against the Reds, limiting pitches for his starters, pulling position players after a few at-bats but keeping relievers on their usual schedule.In regards to feeling that competitive moment, its almost impossible to replicate that unless you actually are playing to get into the playoffs, Maddon said. And youre playing against a team that is not playing for anything, either. So these are all mind games you have to play with yourself in order to replicate what you want.Right-hander Jake Buchanan will make his first Cubs start Friday in the series opener. He has made just one appearance for Chicago since being called up Sept. 1, allowing one run in one inning at Milwaukee on Sept. 5.He had a 4.35 ERA and 93 strikeouts over 130 1/3 innings in 22 starts for Triple-A Iowa this season.Buchanan will face the Cubs for the first time in a career that included major league time with the Houston Astros in 2014 and 2015.Cincinnati, playing out the string on a last-place season, will hand the ball to right-hander Josh Smith, who gets his second start of the season, both against the Cubs.Smith (3-2, 4.77 ERA) allowed just a run on three hits with two walks and three strikeouts over three innings during a Sept. 20 loss.In all, he has faced Chicago three times this year, going 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA.Heading into the final weekend of the season, Cincinnati manager Bryan Price is unsure if will return to the bench in 2017.Im trying to stay in the present, however, I understand that were building toward the future, said Price, who has a 172-241 record since taking the helm before the 2014 season. I keep my eye on the future as well. This stuff, its not a huge, bothersome concern. I know that eventually, its going to be settled. Ill be back or I wont.I dont mind talking about the future at all, I really dont. The future of the players. I really dont want to talk about my future until I have a pretty good grasp on whats going to happen. Khris Davis Jersey . John Lucas, signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required, scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an 18-point lead. Andrew Triggs Jersey . -- Adam Snyder returned to the San Francisco 49ers this season because the offensive lineman thought it was his best opportunity to win a championship. . -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- Jajuan Stinson rushed for 114 yards and two scores, caught a touchdown pass, and East Tennessee State held on for a 23-16 win over NAIA Cumberland on Saturday.Cumberland used an 11-play, 94-yard opening possession to take the lead, capped with the first of two Justin Snyder 1-yard rushing TDs. Stinsons first TD tied it at 7 with 5:55 left in the first quarter.Another long drive from the Phoenix -- 17 plays, 84 yards -- again finished by Snyder made it 14-7. But quarterback Austin Herink moved the Bucs (4-6) down the fiield in five plays, and Stinsons 26-yard TD scamper tied it again at 14 midway through the second quarter. Catfish Hunter Jersey. Stinson capped ETSUs next drive with a 29-yard scoring reception, but the PAT was blocked and returned for two points.JJ Jermans 26-yard field goal as time expired made it 23-16 at the break, and neither team scored in the second half.Snyder passed for 226 yards and ran for 53 for Cumberland (5-6).
