Happy Friday, Red Reporters. Go grab a beer and join us for the game tonight. You’ve earned it.
It’s the first game on Fox Sports Ohio this season, and will mark the debut of new play-by-play guy John Sadak. Lots of exciting names on the field, too, with Jose De Leon getting the start and Tyler Stephenson marking the other half of the battery. Nick Senzel hitting third! India and AlfRod in the middle of the infield!
Shortstop watch: Kyle Farmer in the first repeat start.
Backups should include Cam Bedrosian, Michael Lorenzen, and Hector Perez on the pitching side. Max Schrock as the most interesting offensive sub? Woof.
First pitch at 8:05. Go Reds.
