Cincinnati Reds @ Kansas City Royals

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

4:05 PM EST

Surprise Stadium, Surprise, AZ

Mike Leake vs. Johnathan Sanchez

Coverage:

MLB.com audio, Gameday (?)

Weather: Sunny, game time temperature around 80 degrees.


After an ugly start by Arroyo yesterday that had us remembering 2011 more than we would have liked, the Reds and Royals meet again after squaring off last Friday in a Game the Reds won 5-1. The most memorable part of that game, however, was the Royals starter Danny Duffy slicing up eyeballs and fanning 5 in a row (Harris, Votto, Bruce, Rolen, Lutz). It's hard not to be a little worried about Arroyo at this point, but at least Sean Marshall looked good yesterday

Mike Leake will make his third start of the spring today, and will be relieved by Sam LeCure, Sean Gallagher, and Nick Christiani.

Only 23 more days until Opening Day!
