Just when I think I’m out, they pull me back in!
After two disappointing losses to start the series, the Reds have an opportunity to even it out today. Jeff Hoffman gets the start against his former team today. He’s been better in Cincinnati so far than he ever was in Colorado. The Reds have Nick Senzel back for this one, which is pretty great news, but still no Mike Moustakas. Kyle Farmer gets the start over at 1B.
If you would have told me before Opening Day that Tyler Naquin would be batting 3rd in a mid-May game, I’d have guessed that something was seriously wrong, but in the context of the season so far, it kinda makes sense.
Weather might be a factor for this one, so stay tuned. It’s scheduled to start at 3:10 ET.
