Anthony DeSclafani vs. Doug Fister

Back on the road for a week before the break, and the Reds could use as little drama as possible.

It seems like the way things are going, the Reds wish the break was this week. They just got swept at home by the Brewers, and now go on the road for 7 games. Make no mistakes, this team is ready to move on. They're 7 games under .500 and want no part of this trip right now.

They'll start with Disco tonight, though. He got shelled against the Twins in his last outing, so a bounce back would be a great thing to see, especially since he's one of the Reds who probably isn't going anywhere in the next few weeks.

He'll face Dog Doug Fister, who's been battling injuries all year.

Go Reds.
