Michael Lorenzen vs. Mike Fiers

The Reds had some momentum going into the off day, and should hopefully be refreshed for a big weekend down at the ballyard.

They took 2 of 3 from Minnesota at the beginning of the week, but for some reason, it still felt like they needed that off day to clear their heads a bit. It's a sprint to the All-Star break from here, and there's a lot that can happen off the field from here on out.

Tonight begins a series against the Brew Crew, though, and the Reds will head to battle with Michael Lorenzen. Lorenzen has been good in his last few starts, and you know he'd be interested in getting some revenge against the Brewers.

The Brewers counter with Mike Fiers, who's been good in his last few starts.

Go Reds!
