Another day, another tantalizing pitching matchup. The Reds will have Homer Bailey on the mound, who's looking to build off of a good last start. It's worth mentioning that the last time the Reds scored more than 3 runs in a Homer Bailey start was June 10th, which is an uncomfortably long time since that happened.

The Dodgers have Clayton Kershaw on the mound, who leads the NL in ERA at 2.01. He's on a 5 quality starts in a row streak, so the Reds would love to be the ones to break that.

Reds can force at least a series split tonight, so hopefully the offense can eke out another one against another great pitcher. Go Reds!
