Too bad Bronson isn't pitching this one too. The big story in this one will be how Homer Bailey bounces back from a dismal performance his last time out. It may not get easier, as he has a career 5.47 ERA against Colorado.

The Reds lineup will face another pitcher that they've never seen before. Juan Nicasio has been average so far this year, and hasn't gone more than 6 innings in a start so far this year.

Reds bullpen looks rested, thanks to Bronson.

A series win would be a nice way to start this homestand. Let's get it.
