Homer Bailey v. Carlos Martinez


Homer Bailey makes his 2015 debut today, after spending all of spring on the DL. He looked good in his rehab start, and it's a credit to the Reds that he's been ready as quickly as he has.

He'll face Carlos Martinez, who did a good job against the Reds in his last start at GABP. He struck out 8, and only gave up 2 runs in 6 innings, which the Cards will probably take from him this time around as well.

Go Reds!
