Mike Leake vs. Kyle Kendrick



We're actually going for a series win today, which would be their first since Atlanta on May 11-13. The Reds have Mike Leake on the mound, who had 6 great starts in a row before his last two stinkers. Unfortunately, the Rox have had his number throughout his career, to the tune of a 6.46 ERA.

They'll face Kyle Kendrick, who you probably remember as a Phillie. He had a rough start to the year, but has given up 7 runs in his last 3 starts. The Rockies haven't won a game he's started since April 22.

This is kind of a big one for the Reds. They could use some momentum going into the off day, and a businessman special is the way to do it. Another lineup shakeup today, as Skipper is leading off, with Joey moving back into the 2nd spot.

Go Reds!
