Mike Leake vs. Kevin Correia

Mostly cloudy. Winds blowing in from left field at 10-15 m.p.h. Game-time temperature: Near 85


After using 8 pitchers, 5 pinch hitters and 2 pinch runners in 14 innings last night the Reds look for a less taxing game this evening. Kevin Correia is the mediocre pitcher the Reds will try their luck against this evening. Correia sports bottom of the barrel strikeout numbers. His K/BB (1.67) and K% (10.8%) both rank in the bottom 10 among all MLB pitchers. There's absolutely no reason to believe the Reds won't score some runs tonight.

Mike Leake looks to rebound after getting hit like a baby seal by the Phillies last week. Each start is of major importance for Leake and Homer Bailey the rest of the way. It's likely that only one of them will be part of the post-season roster, and neither has distinguished himself yet.

The "magic number" sits at 12.
