After an outstanding series against the Diamondbacks that saw the Reds take 3 of 4, the Reds look to continue that momentum into a series against the Brewers. The Reds are 5-1 on the season against the Brewers at Great American Ballpark and really need to improve on that record even more if the club wants to keep pace and/or catch the Cardinals and Pirates in the division. (Of course the Reds will have their chance to do that head to head soon enough)
Homer Bailey will be making his second consecutive start against the Brewers tonight. In his last outing, he went 8 innings, allowing a run on 3 hits to pick up the win for the Reds. He will face Yovani Gallardo, whose last outing was also against the Reds and was equally impressive. Gallardo went 6.1 innings of shutout baseball, allowing just 3 hits and 2 walks. In fact, Gallardo has pitched 12.1 scoreless innings against the Reds in his last 2 starts against the club, allowing only 6 hits in those 2 games. Let’s hope tonight means the Reds are due!
