Cincinnati Reds at Pittsburgh Pirates

7:05 PM ET

Brandon Finnegan vs. Tyler Glasnow

The first place Reds roll into Pittsburgh for another intra-division road series.

The Reds will have Brandon Finnegan on the mound, who’s one of two Reds starters who had a stellar debut through the first time through the rotation. Finnegan won’t have the Red Reporter crowd (read: Charlie Scrabbles) vociferously cheering him on for this one, but the Reds pitching staff is clicking on all cylinders to start the year.

He’ll face Tyler Glasnow for Pittsburgh, who’s making his season debut. Glasnow appeared in 7 games for the Buccos last year, and is one of the organization’s top pitching prospects. They’re expecting a lot from him, for sure.

Go Reds! They’re my favorite team!
