Michael Lorenzen vs. Jeff Locke

Happy "Jay Bruce is still a Red" Day!

After a disappointing flurry of nothing at the deadline, the Reds look to be content with only two players leaving. Marlon Byrd is still a Red. Aroldis Chapman is still a Red. Jay Bruce, thankfully, is still a Red.

Meanwhile, the team has won 3 straight, and looks to continue that tonight against the Pirates. Michael Lorenzen gets the ball after getting his clock cleaned by the Rockies in his last start. He'll face the lefty Jeff Locke.

Go Reds.
