Raisel Iglesias v. Gerrit Cole

Last night stunk, but the beauty of this game is that 15 hours later, the Reds have a chance to turn the ship around.

It'll be our best against their best. The Reds have Raisel Iglesias going, after 6 strong innings on Opening Day. He faced the Buccos twice last year, with mixed results.

The Pirates have Gerrit Cole going, who will be making his first start of the season after a setback late in spring training. The Reds have actually done pretty well against Cole in the past, hitting him to the tune of a 5.23 ERA in 6 career starts. That's his worst ERA against any team other than the Blue Jays, who he's only faced once.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
