Jason Bergmann vs Bronson Arroyo
Mostly cloudy with a 60-percent chance of rain. Winds blowing in from left field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game Time temperature: Around 75.
Rain might be a factor today, which is a shame since it's the 4th of July and all. It'd be nice if Bronson could follow up his last start against the Indians with more of the same. The bad news on Bergmann is that he hasn't given up more than one earned run in any of his last three starts. The good news is that the Nats have still managed to lose two of those three starts. He doesn't walk too many hitters, so aggressiveness at the plate may not be a bad thing. Hopefully the Reds can make a dent off of this right-hander.
Happy Independence Day everybody (except for Gray)! Be safe! Don't go blowing any fingers off with firecrackers. You need them for typing!
