This may not seem like an important game, but leaving town with the Reds only losing one game in the standings as opposed to 3 is pretty monumental. Homer Bailey takes the ball for the good guys, and since the Reds couldn't finish the job against the youngsters, they'll have Wainwright to deal with today.

Honestly, if they make it out of this game with a W, it'll feel like they won the series.

This isn't usual protocol, but we really need to change these fortunes. Into the basket she goes.

Good news? If there is any, it's that Chapman and LeCure are both fresh and raring to go.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
