Reds at Pirates, Game 1: Preview/Prediction Thread

David Banks

New series, and an old rival for the boys to play this time out. The Pirates took two of three in Cincy last week, and the teams start a 4-game set tonight at PNC.

Mike Leake gets the ball for Cincinnati. His last start was against this same team at home, where he gave up 3 runs in 6 2/3 innings for his second win of the year.

He'll face Francisco Liriano, who we also saw in that series. He was bested by Johnny Cueto's shutout that day, but threw 7 innings of 3-run ball.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
