Well, interleague has gone just the way we wanted it to so far, assuming we aren't talking about anything that happens after the 6th inning. Both games this series have seen the boys in Red squandering leads--a tactic usually done BY the Reds to unsuspecting opponents. I have to say, it's far less fun being on the other side of it.

The Reds face Carlos Carrasco, who is only 2 starts removed from a DL stint. He gave up 2 runs in 5 1/3 innings against Kansas City the last time out. He's got decent stuff, but has been fringy (I'm not 100% sure this means what I think it means) so far, so hopefully the Reds can string some hits together and actually hold a lead today. Or come from behind to win. I honestly don't care how they get there, but a win is kind of important today after the Cards won again (they're playing SO well...against the Royals...), leaving the Reds 1.5 games out of first in the midst of a surprising 4 game losing streak.
