The Reds go for the semi-sweep tonight against the Indians. Is it still a sweep if we play them tomorrow? I'm not sure. Either way, yesterday's game was a clinical win.

Tonight the Reds face Zach McAllister, who has been surprisingly pretty good so far this year. He got roughed up a bit in his last outing, but has yet to give up 3 runs in an outing in 2013. He's also never faced the Reds.

Mat Latos gets the nod from the Reds, who has faced the Tribe 3 times in his career to the tune of a 2.70 ERA. Not bad. He was ok in his last few outings on the road trip, but will try and bounce back from his last home start where he gave up 6 ER.

Bullpen is pretty rested, and of course we'll keep our eyes on the Chapman/Swisher situation. Go Reds!
