Reds at Phillies, Game 1: Preview/Prediction Thread

USA TODAY Sports




6 in a row, but it doesn't get easier from here. First order of business in this series is Cliff Lee. Old Clifford has a pretty good record against the Reds at 6-2 in his career, with a 3.79 ERA. He's been good so far this year, especially in his last start, where he threw 7 shutout innings.

Facing him will be upstart Tony Cingrani, who is pitching for a rotation spot, to be honest. A rough go here could influence the Reds' decision when Cueto comes back on Monday, so there's more pressure here than there's been in any of his starts yet. His last two starts have been less than spectacular, so hopefully he can bounce back here.

Bullpen could use a bit of a break, but most of the guys are rested.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team on a 6-game winning streak!
