Homer Bailey takes his show on the road tonight, as the Oakland A’s get a look at the Reds’ pitching phenom:
Having dropped the opening game of their road trip to the A’s, the Reds turn to Homer Bailey to even things up.
Bailey will start against Oakland’s Chad Gaudin. The last-place Reds, at a season-high 17 games below .500 and 12 1/2 games out of first place, need a stopper after losing five of their last six games.
Let’s hope for some good baseball tonight. Discuss it here.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
