Back home, after a long game yesterday. It'll feel good to see the fans packing the park, and we'll have a unique matchup with the slugging Blue Jays in town.
First and foremost will be Mat Latos' first home start of the year. He was great in his last outing last Saturday, but he'll have his hands full with the Jays.
The Jays will have Liam Hendriks on the hill, who has never faced the Reds. After spending the first few years of his career in Minnesota, he's spent most of this season in AAA with the Jays. He's made two starts for the big league club, though, and both have been pretty decent.
We'll see a slightly new bullpen tonight, so hopefully Jumbo gets his debut to take the pressure off of the rest of the guys who have pitched a ton lately.
Weather might be a factor for this one, so we'll keep an eye on that.
Go Reds! They're my favorite home team!
