Complete Coverage >

One down, three to go. It's absolutely imperative that the Reds take 3 of 4 this week, so they've put themselves in a position to do just that. They'll have their ace Mat Latos on the hill for this one. He's got a 2.88 ERA against the Buccos in 2 starts at PNC, but the bullpen blew both of his leads. Bummer.

For the Bucs, they have Charlie Morton going, who's making his second big league start following Tommy John surgery. He got knocked around a bit his last time out, giving up 4 runs in 5 innings. He has a 4.27 career ERA against the Reds.

With the welcomed addition of Cingrani, the bullpen did its job last night. Let's hope Latos can bring them most of the way, though.

Go Reds!
