Homer Bailey vs. Wandy Rodriguez

Complete Coverage >

New series, and our chance for the Reds to finally win one. I think this is the one, guys.

Homer Bailey is taking the hill for our Reds, and could really use a good outing after a slow start to the year. He hasn't made it into the 6th in any of his starts so far this year, which is kind of a disturbing trend.

The Reds will face off against the Pirates, who just got swept by the upstart Brew Crew. Wandy Rodriguez has two losses to start the year, getting bested by the Cubs twice, so the Reds' offense won't make things easy on him.

The bullpen looks pretty well rested, and ball o' nerves J.J. Hoover could really use a game.

Go Reds!
