2009 - Manny Parra 0-4 5.33 1.58 23 16

2009 - Bronson Arroyo 4-1 4.91 1.39 18 12

After splitting the two game series in Florida, the Reds return home to take on the Brew Crew in another two game series.

Another day, another Reds pitcher coming off of a brilliant outing. Bronson Arroyo starts for the Reds, having pitched 8 shutout innings last time out in Pittsburgh. Of his 5 starts this year, he has 3 quality starts, all of them coming on the road. Let's hope he can get back on track at home to get the Reds a W.

Manny Parra takes the hill for the Brewers, who's leading the league in losses right now with 4. Last time he took on the Reds, he pitched 6 innings of 3 run ball, but was outdueled by Bronson.

Here's the Reds lineup, via Sheldon:

Taveras CF
Hairston 3B
Votto 1B
Phillips 2B
Bruce RF
McDonald LF
Hanigan C
Janish SS
Arroyo P

With Gonzalez hurt and likely headed for the DL, Arroyo's personal SS gets a start, as well as his personal catcher. Also, Adam Rosales takes his first day off as a big leaguer this season, and with Hairston playing 3B and a lefty on the mound, McFlurry gets the start in LF.

Let's get this homestand going on the right foot. Here's the GameDay link. Go Reds!
