Mat Latos v. Edwin Jackson

COMPLETE COVERAGE >

Rough night at the office last night, but the Reds have Mat Latos on the hill and are prepared to take the series.

Latos got shaken up a bit in his last start, but is back on the road in a place he's pitched well in. He's 3-0 in 4 starts at Wrigley, with a 3.12 ERA and 10 K/9. We'd probably take something like that today.

The Reds face a familiar foe in Edwin Jackson, who is pitching for his 8th team. Jackson has a 3.45 ERA against the Reds in his career, but the Reds roughed him up earlier this year to the tune of 4 runs in 5 2/3 innings. 3 of his 4 quality starts this year came in the beginning of May, and he hasn't had one since May 17th. Of course, that means we'll be the unlucky ones, but I feel pretty good knowing we have Latos going.

It's also reassuring to see how well Joey Votto has hit Jackson in his career. Votto has faced Jackson in 22 plate appearances, and is hitting .381/.409/.810 in those at bats. Not too shabby.

Brandon Phillips is back in the lineup for this one, batting 5th and moving Jay Bruce to 6th. No, I don't know either.

Go Reds!  They're my favorite team!
