The Reds closed out their last series with a whimper, but now get to go to Milwaukee and try their luck against the Brewers. Good news? The Brewers are in dead last in the division, and Kyle Lohse is the best pitcher we'll face here.

Lohse has been decent so far this year, and put up a quality start last time he faced the Reds earlier this year. But he'll have to contend with Homer Bailey, who if you haven't heard, threw a freaking no hitter his last time out. Not bad.

The Reds would really like this trip to start well. That homestand was largely disappointing, and this trip doesn't get easier, so a series win should be looked at as the minimum requirement here. Go Reds!
