So much drama last night, but the Reds escaped with a victory after 8 stagnant innings. They have a chance to win the series today.

The Reds will have Homer Bailey on the mound for this one, who will try and bounce back from a rough outing his last time out against the Brewers. He hasn't faced the Pirates yet this year, but has a 2.51 ERA against them in his career. You may remember his last time facing them, where this happened.

The Pirates will counter with Brandon Cumpton, whom I've never heard of. He's making his 2nd major league start, and gave up 3 runs against the Dodgers his other time out. He's got a 3.31 ERA in Indianapolis so far this year.

It's a business day special, and moderately must-win game for the Reds. Let's do this. Go Reds!
