Redlegs vs. LAlegs, Game 2: Prev and Preds

Joe Robbins

This one is about good as it gets, y'all. Mat Latos mounts the bump for the Reds against Zack Greinke and the first-place Dodgers on national television. And this time, it counts. The weather is nearly perfect here in the OH-zone, too, with temps in the 70s and just a few of those wispy friendly clouds in the sky. All in all, this afternoon is as close to the Platonic ideal of baseball as you could imagine.

Last night's game was pretty dang satisfying itself. The win drew the Reds to within just two games of the first-place Pirates. They haven't been this close since May, 31. It's time to jam.

Aroldis Chapman has been workin' harder than ever this week, as he has pitched four days in a row. In those four games, he has giving up one hit and one walk while striking out nine. I'm sure he'll get the day off today though. Hopefully Maty can twirl another CG. If not, everyone else down' the 'pen should be ready to roll.
