Once again, we’ll put up the game thread early so you can follow along with this afternoon’s Cardinals-Marlins game. Remember, this is a make-up game from an earlier rainout, so it’s just one game before the Cardinals head to Pittsburgh, where they’ll play tomorrow night.
The Reds and Brewers will get it on later tonight, with Homer Bailey scheduled to make the start. At press time (I love pretending I’m an old newspaperman), we haven’t heard if Bailey will actually make the start. You remember, he experienced some dizziness or something last time out. If he isn’t able to go tonight, Sam LeCure or Matt Maloney will make the start.
I don’t want to overstate the importance of this series, but these games against Milwaukee are kinda big. If the Reds can just win two of these three games, it will go a long way toward cementing that division championship.
Here’s your game preview. Go Redlegs!
