Confidence is high after another fantastic come-from-behind win and subsequent performance by the bullpen. Can the Redlegs make it 6 in a row?
- With another lefty on the mound, Jesse Winker is getting a scheduled day off today.
- For the Reds’ side, Luis Castillo gets the ball. Go read Wick’s great piece on him from earlier today if you haven’t.
- If you haven’t seen it, the Reds’ main competition for the NL Central picked up a bat today:
Brewers acquiring 1B Rowdy Tellez from Blue Jays, sources tell @TheAthletic. Return believed to include RHP Trevor Richards. Unclear if other pieces are in deal. Tellez has been in Triple A since June 22. Richards came from Rays in Adames trade.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 6, 2021
- It ain’t broke. Nothing.
CIN: Luis Castillo (3-10, 5.08 ERA, 17 GS, 90.1 IP, 86/35 K/BB)
KCR: Kris Bubic (2-4, 4.99 ERA, 14 G (7 GS), 52.1 IP, 44/27 K/BB)
