Ok, so here's where we're at. Reds still have some control here. They need to win this series to host the WC game. If they don't, we're going to Pittsburgh on Tuesday. That's it.

The Reds have Homer Bailey going in this one, who's already pitched 3 times against Pittsburgh this year. His last start in Pittsburgh was the worst of the three, but he's been better at home. David Dewitt will face Allan James Burnett, who struck out 12 Reds in his last start. Let's hope this one is a bit better for the home team.
