The mission today is simple. Don't get swept.
Unfortunately, Clayton Kershaw. The Reds face the best pitcher in the NL, who shut out the Phillies in 6 innings in his last outing. There may be hope, however, as in the outing before that, he gave up 7 runs in an 18-7 loss to Arizona.
The Reds have Homer Bailey on the mound. Bailey's been up and down all season, but had a quality start his last time out against the Cardinals. He has a 4.01 ERA in 4 starts in Dodger Stadium.
