2009 - Edinson Volquez 3-2 4.45 1.41 28 21

2009 - Chris Volstad 2-0 2.67 0.99 27 12

Tonight closes out the quick trip to Florida. Do the Reds have any pitching left after last night's titanic struggle?

Edinson Volquez starts for the Reds. He had a great start last time against Houston, pitching 8 shutout innings, only allowing 1 hit, and has allowed two total over his last two. Edinson gave up 3 runs in 6 innings the last time he pitched in Miami, and has never lost to the Marlins.

The other "Vol" in this matchup is the Marlins' Chris Volstad, who's been nothing but solid this season. It kind of sucks that we have to go against arguably the Marlins' best two pitchers this series, but it was bound to happen sometime with the easy schedule we've faced so far.

Game time's 7:10, and the lineup as been announced, via Fay:

Willy Taveras CF
Jerry Hairston Jr. SS
Joey Votto 1B
Brandon Phillips 2B
Jay Bruce RF
Ramon Hernandez C
Adam Rosales 3B
Chris Dickerson LF
Edinson Volquez P
