Keyvius Sampson vs. Matt Garza

After the off day, we're back home for a cellar series against Milwaukee. This is the most important series of the year so far.

Keyvius Sampson gets another shot, despite not making it into the 5th inning in any of his last 3 starts. I'd guess that he's the first one heading to the bullpen when the next starter is ready (*cough* Stephenson *cough*), so hopefully this goes well.

Matt Garza goes for Milwaukee.

Go Reds!
