Jon Moscot vs. Matt Harvey

Well, the bullpen didn't exactly blow it all away last night; Finnegan got the ball rolling. Alas, we're staring at a sweep instead of a rubber match in this one.

Jon Moscot will get the start for your Redlegs. Moscot's been pretty much exactly what you'd assume he'd be this early in the season. He's not a dumpster fire by any means, but he's not exactly in the running for Cy Young. I think he's pitched a little better than his ERA shows (5+), and considering he's been asked to do it against the Cardinals and Cubs, you can take it with a grain of salt.

It won't get a lot easier tonight as he find himself facing the defending NL champs.

Matt Harvey's opposite of Moscot tonight, and he's not exactly been the hero that the Mets have needed (but totally deserve) this year. Harvey comes into this one with four starts under his belt and a 5.27 ERA, though he was quite a bit better in his last start than he was getting shellacked by Cleveland the time before.

So, Go Reds! They're my favorite team (that hopefully won't get swept!)
