Alfredo Simon v. Jordan Lyles

COMPLETE COVERAGE >

Johnny and Joey got us one last night, and the Reds will hope to continue with the solid Alfredo Simon on the mound. Simon has been a horse, and hasn't gone less than 6 innings in any start so far this year.

The bullpen also gets an upgrade tonight, as Aroldis Chapman returns from his injury. He takes the spot of Curtis Partch, who hasn't pitched since being called up.

The Reds will face Jordan Lyles of the Rockies, who is having a fine debut season in Colorado after starting his career with the Astros. He had his longest outing of the year his last time out, going 8 runs in a win against the Rangers. He has one career start at GABP, where he went 6 innings and gave up 3 runs.

Should be another good one, as both of these teams are playing well. The weirdo lineup is there again, too, so that should be interesting.

Go Reds!
