Arguably, this could be the toughest game of this series. A win here would be huge, and a good series in Miami could really help set the tone for the rest of May. Of course, to do this, the Reds have to go through Ricky Nolasco, who might be the best pitcher on Miami's staff right now. The Reds have seen him plenty, and have roughed him up to the tune of a 5.02 ERA. The Reds didn't see him in the last series, but his last time out he struck out 9 and only gave up 1 run.

Homer Bailey did see the Marlins in the last series, and went 6 innings and only gave up 2 runs against them. He hasn't been so hot in his last two starts, though. This should be good lineup for Homer to right the ship a bit.

Bullpen is rested, of course. Predictions below. Go Reds!
