Mike Leake vs Tom Gorzelanny

Partly cloudy. Winds blowing from right to left field at 1-5 m.p.h. Game time temperature around who gives a shit, there's a roof on this stadium.

The Redlegs keep rolling on. Mike Leake takes the hill tonight, fresh off of a solid performance against the Padres where the Reds were able to win in extra innings to start this little streak they're on. He made it into the 9th inning in the only other time where he faced Milwaukee this year, so hopefully he can carry that over a bit into tonight.

They'll go up against longtime NL Central punching bag Tom Gorzellany, who is actually coming off of a nice outing himself, throwing 7 shutout innings against Seattle in his last start.

Tonight's a chance to at least take a series split, so hopefully the Reds can prevail. Looking at the bullpen chart, it looks like Chapman is getting a bit overworked, so let's hope the offense can put this one out of the 3-run range.

Go Reds!
