That one stung, but overall, a successful road trip. The Reds are back at home, and get yet another division foe at home in Milwaukee. Despite being pretty bad for most of the year, the Reds are catching them at the wrong time, as they've won 6 of their last 10 and blew out the Marlins last night.

They'll bring former Red Kyle Lohse to the mound, who's been good lately. He threw 8 innings of 1-run ball in his last start against the Phillies, but only lowered his season ERA to 4.03. He's got a career 3.34 ERA against the Reds in his lifetime.

The Reds counter with Lohse's former teammate Bronson Arroyo, who has a 3.75 career ERA against the Brew Crew. He's been good in his last two, and hasn't had a home start that wasn't a QS since May 6.

The bullpen could use a break, and a move could be made by the time of this writing.
