Josh Smith vs. Taylor Jungmann


Josh Smith gets the ball for his first start with the Reds since July 4th. Since then, he's spent some time in the bullpen, but it looks like the Reds are moving to a "whatever man" rotation, which given their roster could actually be fine. They're running out the clock, so why not give Smith another shot?

Jungmann faces the Reds for the 3rd time this year, a year where his first two outings against the Reds amassed 14 innings with only one run given up. Good freaking luck.

Go Reds!
