Alfredo Simon vs. Alex Cobb

Complete Coverage >

Good news? We saw a great game from Cueto, Joey hit a homer, and LeCure and Broxton pitched well from the 'pen. Bad news? Another tough loss.

Let's give Price a little credit, though, he's shaking things up today. Votto hitting 2nd, BP hitting 3rd. Really interesting lineup from the boys today, that could give Billy a chance to run hitting in front of the most patient hitter in the league. BP's raking right now, so I don't mind seeing him at 3rd at all. Maybe having Joe Maddon in town inspired Manager BP to think outside the box a bit?

Alfredo Simon will take the hill for the Reds for his second start, after impressing in his first. Alex Cobb will pitch for Tampa, who also pitched well in his last start, going 7 shutout innings against the Rangers.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
