This is a lot more fun, isn’t it? The Reds have won four of their last five games and find themselves within two games of 1st place for the first time since May 31.
Today, the Reds face Dodgers starter Zack Greinke (14-3, 2.78 ERA, 1.14 WHIP). Greinke hasn’t allowed more than 2 runs in any of his last seven starts dating back to July 25th. Of course, that July 25th start was against Cincinnati when Greinke surrendered homeruns to Xavier Paul and Jay Bruce and gave up 4 runs total over 7 innings.
The Reds would win that July 25th matchup 5-2 behind the strong pitching of today’s starter, Mat Latos (14-5, 2.98 ERA, 1.19 WHIP). Latos is coming off a complete game victory against the Cardinals and has allowed more than 2 runs only once in his last 9 starts.
On top of all the exciting game action, Joe Morgan Weekend continues today at GABP. There’s a lot of great stuff online today about Morgan. Check out this piece by John Erardi for starters. If you missed any of the Great Eight action last night, follow the links to videos and news stories.
