Cincinnati Reds

Brandon Finnegan vs. Mike Leake

The Reds get to deal with a rubber match today in a businessman's special. Brandon Finnegan gets the start for Cincinnati, and he's coming off of 6 shutout innings in San Diego in his last start. He's faced the Cardinals twice so far this year, and has only given up 2 ER in 12 innings.

The story of this game, though, will be Mike Leake making his second start back in Cincinnati. He didn't fare very well earlier this year, as the Reds tagged him for 6 runs on June 7th.

Go Reds!
