Last night was fun, but now the real test begins. Confidence is as high it's been all year, but if the Reds drop their next two, it won't feel nearly as good. No time to look on that now, the team has got to do some work today.

They'll take the field behind Bronson Arroyo, who was solid in his last time out, pitching a quality start. Interesting lineup for Dusty today, with Cozart moving back to the 2nd spot in the order and Derrick Robinson getting his first career start in LF. It's produced a lot of blowback so far on the internets, but I can't get too bent out of shape about it.

They'll face a slightly weaker Cards lineup, without David Freese. Lance Lynn takes the hill for the WLBs, who surprisingly hasn't faced the Reds too much. He's only got one start under his belt (and 3 relief appearances) with a 7.50 ERA against Cincinnati.

Chance to win the series on the road tonight, you know we'll be watchin'. Go Reds!
