CARDINALS PROBABLE: REDS PROBABLE:
Adam Wainwright (4-4, 5.12) Kyle Lohse (2-7, 4.58)
It'd be nice to salvage a game here against the Cardinals.
It's funny, this team in a lot of ways doesn't feel as bad as it actually is, I think because it's natural to not really think of the bullpen nearly as much as the starting pitching and position players when you're evaluating a team. But the bullpen really trickles down and ruins everything. I don't think anyone would argue with the fact that the Reds starters would probably be doing a little better if Narron felt comfortable taking them out earlier.
Lohse has pitched a little better than a 2-7 record would indicate, especially recently, and hopefully he'll continue that tonight.
