Dan Straily vs Daniel Mengden

The Reds ace from last year made a triumphant return last night, but the Reds ace from this year takes his turn today.

Dan Straily takes on his former team, and is pitching as good now as he's been since he left. He's coming off of a great start where he shut down the Nationals and he has either a win or a quality start in his last 8 starts.

On the other side will be Daniel Mengden, who will be making his big league debut. Mengden has a 1.19 ERA in 11 starts between AA and AAA so far this year, and a kickass mustache.

Go Reds!
