Mike Leake vs. Justin Verlander

COMPLETE COVERAGE >


After the long night last night, I think we'd be happy with another pitching duel today.

Mike Leake has been solid lately, even if he only went 5 innings in his last start. He's still kind of showcasing himself for trades, as it's that time of year, but the Reds will probably want him to go at least 6 innings last night with heavy bullpen nights in the last two games.

He'll face Mr. Upton, who's pitching in his second game of the year. He went 5 innings in his first start against Cleveland, giving up 2 runs. He's pitched once in GABP, where he gave up 2 runs in 6, so that's a pretty good baseline target for the Reds' hitters.

Go Reds.
