Alfredo Simon v. Dallas Beeler

COMPLETE COVERAGE >


Last night was a roller coaster ride of a game if I've ever seen one. The boys are back at it again to win their 5th in a row. Alfredo is on the hill to go for his 12th win, which would put him at the top of the majors. He has 3 quality starts against the Cubs this year.

He'll face off against Dallas Beeler, who is making his second career start after his first one went pretty swimmingly. I'd be pretty confident, but we all saw how the Reds did with Tsuyoshi Wada.

Go Reds!
