"The Reds will go for a sweep Sunday behind Tom Shearn, a 29-year-old right-hander who is being called up from Triple-A Louisville to make his Major League debut. The Columbus, Ohio, native is 7-10 with a 4.20 ERA in 26 games, 24 of them starts, for the Bats. This season is his 11th in the Minor Leagues. He did not play in 2003.
Shearn's assignment means every one of the five pitchers who opened the season in Louisville's rotation will have started at least once for the Reds. The other four are Homer Bailey, Phil Dumatrait, Bobby Livingston and Mike Gosling.
"I'm sure he'll be a little bit nervous, but we hope we can get him through that and he'll give us five or six innings," Mackanin said."
