The temperature should be in the low-to-mid 80s at first pitch with sunny skies and a light breeze. It sounds like a delightful night for a ballgame.

Emphatic win last night, and the homestand is already off to a good start. The Reds will need to build momentum on that, as we have a battle of two left-handers tonight. Tony Cingrani's last start in Milwaukee was good, but his two previous starts at home left a little to be desired.

He'll face Arizona's stud lefty Patrick Corbin, who absolutely murdered the Reds last time they faced off. Corbin only has one road start in his last 7, so hopefully the unfamiliarity of pitching at GABP will factor in a bit here. The Reds kind of need it to.

The bullpen looks pretty good after the new "new" Reds setup team in Parra and Hoover paved the way to Chapman to close it out. It'd be nice to get Chapman a rest.

Go Reds!
