Time for the rubber match of this offensively challenged series. Or perhaps I should refer to it as pitching dominated. However you want to describe it, it has been exciting and fun to watch these last 2 games play out. I know most people love the homerun ball and the high scoring offenses. But I have always been fond of these tight, low scoring games where the outcome hinges on every pitch.
Today’s game could see some of the same lights out pitching as games 1 and 2 with Homer Bailey taking the mound for the Reds against the Cardinals’ Lance Lynn. With that said, and retracting my statement in the previous paragraph, I would not mind seeing the Reds explode offensively and win this game comfortably and usher the Cardinals out of Cincinnati with a bang!
It’s a business day special game. It may be difficult for you to tell your boss to shove it twice in one week to watch the Reds, but if you’re a loyal Reds fan, you’ll find someway to follow today’s game and maybe get enough work done to please your boss. Or you could be like me: Sitting on your couch enjoying spring break while watching the game with your family!
Go Reds! And also go Tucker Barnhart who is making his big league debut today!

A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
