Mike Leake v. Gerrit Cole


If Monday is an official holiday in the Queen City, Wednesday is ours here at Red Reporter. It's Game 2. If you're not there, you're missing out.

Not that we'll watch any of this game, but Mike Leake takes the hill for the Reds for the first time in 2015. The lineup's about the same as Monday. They'll face Gerrit Cole, who is good.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
