Mike Leake vs. Shelby Miller


Weather might be a factor for this one, but we're going to try and get this one in.

The Reds are back home for the next week, so try to get down to the ballpark if you can. The Reds did you a favor and have a few 'G's back to the uniform department, and we'll likely see a few great pitching matchups in this series.

Tonight's will feature Mike Leake taking on Shelby Miller for the second time this year. In Atlanta, Leake outdueled Miller in a low-scoring game, and hasn't given up a run in 16 innings. Arguably, there's no one hotter on the Reds' staff right now.

Miller's start against the Reds was his only loss of the year so far, and he's been good since then too. He threw a complete game shutout against the Phillies in his last go.

Shameless plug: be sure to listen to Wick on the Sports Huddle show on ESPN 1300 in Lexington. He's scheduled to go on at 6:45, so check that out as you're waiting for the game to start.

Go Reds!
