The Reds will have their work cut out for them tonight as they face off against Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw’s 9-6 record would suggest he hasn’t been doing that well this season, but his 2.01 ERA suggests something completely different. The Reds have had some success against him of late however. Since 2010, the Reds are 1-1 versus Clayton, putting up 12 runs in 5 starts. Brandon Phillips has 7 hits in 16 at-bats versus Kershaw so perhaps Kershaw’s ERA is about to rise after tonight!
Homer Bailey will need to be on the top of his game however if the Reds want to hand the Dodgers back to back losses and for the Reds to clinch their 5th win on this road trip and inch one step closer to a winning West Coast trip. I think the good guys are up for it. GOOOOOO REDS!
