David Holmberg v. Julio Teheran

COMPLETE COVERAGE >

This is a rough matchup for our Redlegs. David Holmberg will be making his second start as a Red, after his first went... unceremoniously.

He's been pretty solid in his last few starts, though, so maybe we shouldn't worry yet.

He'll face Julio Teheran, who has been very good this season, and who shut out the Reds for 8 innings earlier this year. That guy.

This is getting sad, but the little lady better get comfortable.
