Mike Leake vs. Cole Hamels


The Reds are still in town, and despite the draft (and the Women's World Cup) (USA USA) being the main focus for tonight, we're still playing a baseball game.

Mike Leake got the better of Hamels and the Phillies in his last start, taking a no-no into the 7th and a shutout into the 9th before letting two runners on base and allowing the bullpen to throw the game away.

Hamels struck out 8 Reds in that game, but gave up 2 runs in 7 innings, which wasn't as good as Leake but good enough to keep the Phillies in "Reds bullpen blown leads" range.

The Reds have Ivan De Jesus starting in left field tonight, his first start as a Red, so that's a thing.

Go Reds.
