Homer Bailey vs. A.J. Burnett


TV: FS-O; RADIO: KDKA-FM 93.7, WLW 700


Partly cloudy. Winds blowing in from left field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game-time temperature: Around 70.

The Reds look to embark on another winning streak as they take on the Pirates tonight. Just 6 days ago A.J. Burnett held the Reds' bats to 1 run on only 2 hits over 7 innings pitched. Take away a brutal game against the Cardinals in which he surrendered 12 runs and Burnett has allowed 2 runs or fewer in every other start this season.

The good news for the Reds is Homer Bailey. In his last outing, Bailey pitched a complete game against these Pirates. In fact, the Pirates are the only team Bailey has pitched a complete game against (twice). For his career, Homer has a nifty 1.79 ERA and a 6-0 record against the foes of Pittsburgh.

Dusty's men should be well rested having enjoyed two off-days over the last week. Therefore (fingers crossed) we should expect to see the regulars start every game of this series, unlike the most recent trip to Pittsburgh.
