MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Cincinnati Reds David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati Reds vs. Atlanta Braves

7:10 PM ET

Bronson Arroyo vs. Mike Foltynewicz

Bronson Arroyo (3-4, 6.62 ERA) gets the start for the Reds as he looks to rebound from an awful 2-week stretch. Most recently, he went 5 innings and gave up 3 earned runs against the Phillies in a 4-3 loss. He has had trouble keeping the ball in the yard lately, as he has given up 11 HR in his last 4 starts. He will look to improve upon that as he faces off against a Braves team who have scuffled as of late, losing 6 of their last 8 games.

The big story of the game is that former second baseman Brandon Phillips makes his first appearance in Cincinnati since the trade that sent him to Atlanta this past off-season. He has put together a decent season so far, slashing .294/.343/.413 for the Barves. On the mound, the Reds will face Mike Foltynewicz. He is hoping to bounce back after a rough start in San Francisco where he allowed 5 runs on 7 hits in only 4 innings of work.

Go Reds! You’re our favorite team!
