We’ve long grown accustomed to seeing series sweeps when the Cincinnati Reds head west for long road trips. What we’ve not seen often, however, is the Reds the team with the chance to do the sweeping.
That’s the case on Sunday, though, as the Reds look to down the Los Angeles Dodgers for a fourth consecutive game, which would extend their win streak to six overall. Man, it’s good just to even think about typing those words in description of this Reds club after the way the 2018 season began.
First pitch is set for 4:10 PM ET, and will feature both Luis Castillo and Rich Hill starting for their respective teams.

- The Reds are featuring a lineup today with ample Dodgers/California flavor. Tony Cruz was once drafted by the Dodgers, both Jose Peraza and Scott Schebler played for the Dodgers, Luis Castillo and Adam Duvall first were signed by the San Francisco Giants, Alex Blandino is a product of Northern California, and Joey Votto’s GDP has him tied with California for the fifth largest in the world, behind only the total US, China, Japan, and Germany.
- There isn’t a ton of ‘Other Notes’ worthy news for today, as you can well see.
- Go Reds. They’re my favorite team.
