Raisel Iglesias vs. Jason Hammel

Raise hell, Raisel!

Iglesias makes his second start back from Louisville, and his sixth of the season. He gave up 5 runs in his last start, so he'll need to be better today.

He'll face Jason Hammel, who the Reds knocked around about a month ago. He's been banged up lately, only pitching the first inning in his last start, but this could prove to be a good matchup.

Today's #Hugwatch is Billy Hamilton, who isn't starting in favor of Skip Schumaker in LF and Marlon Byrd making his 2nd appearance of the year in CF.

Go Reds.
