REDS PROBABLE: PIRATES PROBABLE:
Brandon Claussen (0-0, 0.00) Ian Snell (0-0, 0.00)
The thing to really watch with Claussen is his pitch count and if he can stay ahead of hitters. He walks so many guys, and gets deep into the count so often that it's tough for him to ever go more than 5-6 innings. If he can be a little more economical with his pitches than he might breakout a little bit.

There's some rain moving through Cincinnati according to Weather.com, but hopefully they'll be able to play some baseball tonight.
