Mike Leake v. Edinson Volquez

COMPLETE COVERAGE >

Mike Leake takes the mound to begin the next series. This'll be the last series before rosters expand, and I think as Reds fans that day can't come soon enough. Leake went 6.2 shutout innings against the Braves in his last time out.

He'll face former Red Edinson Volquez, who after a shaky start to the season, has a 2.35 ERA in August. Not too shabby.

Go Reds!
