The Reds attempt to snap a three-game losing streak, as they host the Philadelphia Phillies this afternoon at Great American Ballpark. As Steve summarized in the series pitching match-ups, Alfredo Simon squares off against right-hander Roberto Hernandez.
I’m getting really worried here. The Reds have lost all three game threads that I started this week. If they keep this up, Steve is going to fire me! Please Reds… you HAVE to win this one!!
INJURY NOTES: Mark Sheldon tweeted earlier this afternoon that Joey Votto is travelling to Pawtucket to start a rehab assignment for the Bats on Sunday.
LINEUP: The Reds lineup today features Skip Schumaker in left field, Todd Frazier at first base dropped to 6th and Ramon Santiago getting another game at 3rd base.
