Cincinnati Reds @ Pittsburgh Pirates

Alfredo Simon v. Vance Worley
Alfredo Simon takes the ball for the Reds. There's an interesting storyline there, in that if he continues to struggle, there could be a change in the rotation to end the season, especially with how many innings he already has on his arm. The Reds will probably be looking pretty hard at this start.
He'll face Vance Worley, who is the Pirates' starter that the Reds should hit the hardest in this series. That said, he's going to probably no-hit them.
