Reds at Dodgers (May 26, 2014)

The Redlegs begin yet another dreaded west coast road trip tonight with game one of a series against the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine. The Reds have lost two in a row, and stand at 22-26, 6.5 games behind first-place Milwaukee.

During this series, the Reds will face a trifecta of brilliant Dodgers hurlers: Hyun-Jin Ryu, Zack Greinke, and Clayton Kershaw. This is gonna be fun, Reds fans!

Tonight, we’ll see Ryu, who is currently 4-2 with a 3.00 ERA. The last time he faced the Reds was in July of 2013, when he surrendered only two hits and one run over seven innings, striking out nine and walking just one.

He’s good, but the Reds have a pretty good pitcher slated to start tonight, as well. His name is Johnny Cueto, and even after a rough outing last week against Washington, Cueto is 4-3 with a 1.86 ERA. He hasn’t faced Los Angeles in nearly two years, when he went took the loss despite going seven strong innings, allowing three runs on seven hits, striking out seven without walking a batter.

Here’s tonight’s lineup:

1. CF: Billy Hamilton
2. SS: Zack Cozart
3. 2B: Brandon Phillips
4. 1B: Todd Frazier
5. LF: Ryan Ludwick
6. RF: Chris Heisey
7. C: Brayan Pena
8. 3B: Ramon Santiago
9. SP: Johnny Cueto

  1. Respectability salvaged for one more day. That’s a pretty low bar fort he Reds to cross but I have come to not expect very much.

  2. Dodgers had a perfect game through six, Reds have played bad defense, and they are threatening to take the lead. Baseball is a funny game.

  3. So, is Brayan Pena a better defensive first baseman than Lutz? Legitimate question here.

  4. This Turner guy…came back from the year, 2112, to mess with the ONE game that would turn around the 2014 Reds season.

  5. This organization is terrible from top to bottom. Nothing in the majors nothing in the minors. And the Votto contract keeps them from doing anything. Gonna be a long dark decade folks.

  6. Just need 1 run to extend this game. Man, we are so due to have a great comeback win. Even the ’64 Mets probably have a couple.

  7. I’ll tell ya, Ludwick had some pitches right down Broadway, but was so far behind with his swing that the catcher was throwing the ball back to the pitcher before Ludwick swung the bat.
