Mike Leake vs. Gerrit Cole

COMPLETE COVERAGE >



Last night was pretty successful, so let's see if the Reds can build on this and win a series. The Reds will go with Mike Leake, who despite not being the ace of the staff, has looked like it in his past few starts.

They'll face Gerrit Cole, who will be a tall order. He's been one of the best pitchers in the National League so far this year, even with his mediocre outing against the Reds in the first series of the year. He hasn't given up more than 1 ER in a start since.

Zack Cozart is still on the shelf, and Tucker Barnhart gets a start behind the plate.

Go Reds.
