Mike Leake v. Nathan Eovaldi

COMPLETE COVERAGE >

3 in a row, and the Redlegs keep rolling on. Mike Leake will look to continue the good fortune against the floundering Marlins. He's having a pretty nice stretch right now, only giving up 1 run in his last start, which was coincidentally against the Marlins.

He'll face Nathan Eovaldi, who beat the Reds in his last start in Miami. The Reds will hope to get to him on the road, but he's been better in away games than he has been in home games so far this year.

The lineup looks okay, with Brayan Pena back at 1B and Kris Negron riding this latest hot streak into another start.

Go Reds!
