The pitching for both teams the last two days has been outstanding. Six total runs have been scored in the first 18 innings of this series, so here's hoping your Redlegs can do some damage against Lance Lynn and leave St. Louis with a series victory.

Homer has been outstanding so far this season. Outside of a rough two innings against these Cardinals in which he gave up seven runs back on April 10, he has surrendered only three total runs 30 innings. This cowboy is out for redemption.

Lynn pitched well against the Reds on April 9, earning the win throwing six innings and striking out ten. That's Homer-like domination, holmes. I'd really like to see the Reds get the sticks crackin' this afternoon, but this is shaping up to be yet another 2-1 pitcher's delight.

Also, DONALD LUTZ IS STARTING TODAY IN LEFT FIELD!! KNOCK A WURST ALL THE WAY TO LUTZEMBOURG FOR US, BRAUNERHULK!

The bullpen got a much-needed break last night with Bronson Arroyo's cromulent performance. Hopefully, Chapman and Broxton are able to go if necessary. Even if not, everyone else should be relatively fresh and rarin' to go.
