Reds vs. Brewers, Game 1: Preview and Predictions

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Milwaukee Brewers



@ Cincinnati Reds

Friday, July 4, 2014
Great American Ball Park

Alfredo Simon v. Kyle Lohse

COMPLETE COVERAGE >


Back at it on America's birthday. Should be a great crowd for this whole series with the first place Brewers in town. Alfredo Simon will get to try and bolster his All-Star argument today against a team he pitched well against earlier this year. He went 7 innings and gave up 3 runs on May 4, but hasn't faced them since.

The Lohser will go for the Brewers tonight, who pitched well in that same game but found his time on the losing end. He'll look for revenge against a team he's pitched well against, and his 2.89 ERA against the Reds is his second best opponent to pitch against, only behind Houston.

Go America!  They're my favorite country!
