Reds vs. Pirates, Game One - News, Lineups, & Pitching Matchups

  • The Reds start a 4-game home series with the Pirates tonight at GABP. The Brewers just went 5-1 in their two post-All Star Break series with the Buccos, so the pressure is on the Reds to perform similarly.
  • The Brewers are off tonight, so the Reds can actually make up some ground. The Reds haven’t done that since July 20, either losing ground to the Brewers or not gaining or losing a game on each day.

Roster Moves

  • Nick Castellanos is back and hitting 3rd today.
  • To make room, the team optioned Max Schrock back to AAA. I know this is an options thing, but if you’re pushing for a playoff spot, it seems silly to not have your best 26 guys on the roster. That’s just my opinion, though.
