The Reds will look to take the series tonight in game 2 of the series versus the Mets. They’ll call on Mike Leake to get the job done. Leake is having a nice season up to this point, which may come as a surprise considering many of us (myself included) have clamored for Chapman or Cingrani to have his spot in the rotation. I am sure nearly 99% of MLB teams would love to have a guy with a 3-2 record and 3.72 ERA entering tonight’s game as their #5 starter.
While many eyes are waiting for tomorrow’s matinee pitching matchup, the Reds can secure their 6th win on this 9-game road trip with a win tonight. Regardless of who is on the schedule, having a shot to go 6-3 or 7-2 on a road trip is a nice way to boost your record and your standing within the division. Can the Reds get it “going” again tonight? Let’s hope so. Go Reds!
