Returning to Wrigley Field after a road trip might normally be viewed as a haven of sorts for the Cubs. For this upcoming three-game series against the Reds? Maybe not so much.

4/14/2014 | Reds' faith helping Cozart move past slump
Reds shortstop Zack Cozart knew he didn't have to look over his shoulder when he was struggling at the plate to start the season.
