Game two of this epic rematch of the 1976 World Series takes place tonight at Great American Ballpark. Unfortunately, the Reds have already lost more games in this series than they did in 1976.
Oh well, time to get back on the winning track. Johnny Cueto is scheduled to start, after having his regular day in the rotation pushed back because of a sore neck or something. Cueto hasn’t allowed an earned run in his last fourteen innings, over two starts. Let’s hope that streak continues deep into today’s game.
Here’s your game preview. Go Redlegs.
UPDATE: Game has been rained out. Day-night doubleheader tomorrow. Use this as an open thread to discuss whatever you like.
