Cincinnati Reds

PNC Park

Mike Leake v. Francisco Liriano

Complete Coverage >

New series, and an old rival for the boys to play this time out. The Pirates took two of three in Cincy last week, and the teams start a 4-game set tonight at PNC.

Mike Leake gets the ball for Cincinnati. His last start was against this same team at home, where he gave up 3 runs in 6 2/3 innings for his second win of the year.

He'll face Francisco Liriano, who we also saw in that series. He was bested by Johnny Cueto's shutout that day, but threw 7 innings of 3-run ball.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
