Well hello there Pittsburgh. You’re so cute! You hang around in the standings, giving your fans hope. But we all know who you really are. Time to trend that record back to under .500 like we know you will by October. What better time to start that downward trend than tonight in Cincinnati!
The Reds now begin a stretch of 16 consecutive games against winning teams. Eight of those are at home and eight are on the road. This will be a true test of where this team stands as we head into July and the All-Star Break. Mike Leake gets the stretch started tonight by taking the mound for the Reds.
