Mat Latos v. Jacob Turner

COMPLETE COVERAGE >

Last night's offense was pathetic. Let's hope tonight's is better, because hope is just about all we have left right now.

Mat Latos goes for Cincinnati, fresh off of the birth of his first kid. Congrats to him. The younger Latos is not in the lineup tonight, so the team probably won't score many runs.

The newly acquired Jacob Turner makes his first start for Chicago, after two relief appearances. His last start was actually against the Reds on August 3rd, where he went 4 innings in a Marlins loss.

Go Reds!
