Mike Leake vs. Taylor Jungmann
The Reds were embarrassed by themselves on Friday and embarrassed by the Brewers on Saturday. They will try to avoid the sweep today. After all, being swept by the worst team in the division puts a damper on All Star Excitement™.
Milwaukee will trot out Taylor Jungmann, who is not to be confused with Henny Youngman. Henny Youngman was a comedian and violinist while Taylor Jungmann won the Dick Howser trophy in college (this is not the setup to a joke). In his 5 career starts, all in 2015, he has accumulated a 2.79 ERA in 29.0 IP, striking out 23 and walking 8.
Mike Leake will start for the Reds. After putting together 2 consecutive 7.0 inning starts, he was rocked on Monday, giving up 7 earned runs in 4.0 innings. And, unfortunately, that was not the worst outing of a Reds starter this week. Enjoy Arbys.
