Tonight, the Reds begin a three game series with the Diamondbacks. Coming off a split with Pittsburgh, I feel like the Reds need to take two of three from the Diamondbacks. Need is not really a good word to use in June, but as we’ve discussed here on RN, this is a very difficult stretch for our beloved Redlegs and they can’t lose or split every series. They need some wins.

Tonight’s game is an opportunity to start off on the right foot as Reds’ ace Johnny Cueto (4-0, 2.08) goes up against a Wade Miley (4-6, 4.64) who hasn’t been nearly as good this year as he was last year. The lineup is below. Use this thread to cheer on the Reds. Though, like me, I’m sure many of you will be in bed before this one wraps up (hooray for small children!).

Go Reds.
