Brandon Finnegan vs. John Lackey


Finnegan got shelled in his last outing, so if he doesn't get shelled again today, I'm going to chalk that up as a win. He only went 4 innings the only other time he faced the Cubs this year.

He'll face John Lackey, who the Reds have faced twice this year, but not since April. He got the better of the first start, but the Reds took him for 6 runs in the second. Let's hope for another one like the latter there.

Go Reds!
