Mike Leake vs. Shelby Miller


Reds make their first foray outside of the NL Central tonight, visiting Atlanta for a 4-game set. The Braves have actually been exceeding expectations, and now have the same record as the disappointing Redlegs.

Mike Leake takes the mound for Cincy. The Reds haven't been great at giving him run support, but he's coming off of his best start so far where he struck out 9.

Unfortunately, that run support won't come easily, as the Reds face old friend Shelby Miller. Miller's been great so far this year, sporting a 2.05 ERA and the Braves haven't lost in any of his 4 starts.

Pena gets another day off, for whatever reason, but the other regulars are in there.

Go Reds!
