The Cincinnati Reds (5-19) will go for their first legit series win of 2018 at 12:35 PM against the Atlanta Braves (13-11). The Reds did “sweep” a rain-shortened 1-game series of the Cubs in the first week of the season. The Reds bullpen spoiled a solid start from Brandon Finnegan, and blew a late 4-3 lead yesterday.
Programming Notes: today’s Reds game is the MLB.tv free game of the day for those outside of the Cincinnati Market.
It sure would be nice to get a series win. It might even be nicer to see Homer Bailey continue his nice start to 2018. Go Reds!
