Reds go for the sweep today, and try to wrap up what could be a 5-2 homestand. Not bad, but last night’s win already assured a winning homestand, so that’s good news. A winning record on the upcoming road trip to Chicago and Milwaukee to close out the first half would be even better.
Edinson Volquez will pitch today against the Nationals who, after watching them for three days, I’m convinced have a roster full of more re-treads and AAA players than any other team in the league. Good work, Nationals GM Jim Bowden!
Discuss the game here….and remember, if nothing else, the Reds are in fourth place, not last!
