Yesterday’s game was a wash, so the Reds start anew today at home with a series against the Seattle Mariners. The Mariners are only a Houston Astros addition to the division away from being a last place team so this is a good chance for the Reds to continue their good play that began this week against the San Francisco Giants.
The Reds will face a familiar face tonight in Aaron Harang. Harang’s 3-7 record and 5.08 ERA is nearly the exact opposite of Mike Leake’s, who Harang will face tonight. Leake is putting his name into serious consideration for an All-Star nod (he’s a longshot) with a 7-3 mark and 2.52 ERA.
The Reds have been going the last 3 games and really need to step on the gas pedal over these next 7 games before heading into a 3 game set with Atlanta before the All-Star break. I think many have stepped away from the ledge this week, so now let’s celebrate some winning baseball!! Go Reds!
