It’s a nice day in Cincinnati, so watch the game outside or something.
Biggest story in the lineup is the return of Shogo Akiyama, who just had to make a trip to Cincinnati after a tree fell on his wife in Sharon Woods. Red Reporter wishes her the best in her recovery.
The pitching match up is interesting, too, with Cionel Perez getting the start today. On the other side, old friend Anthony DeSclafani starts for the Giants.
Shortstop watch: Gordon D. Strange.
First pitch at 3:05, and will be televised on Fox Sports Ohio if you have basic cable and don’t subscribe to a streaming service. Go Reds.
