Wouldn’t it be great if the Reds sweep the Pirates and only be a game back from 2nd place in the NL Central standings? Well today would be a great day to do it before doing a 10-day 11-game road trip to the west coast. Today, my Granite state native Jeff Locke (North Conway) will be facing No-hit Homer Bailey today as the Reds go for the sweep against the Pirates, which they did last year on September 10-12.
Jeff Locke: 5 2/3 IP, 6 H, 2 2B, HR, R, 3 BB, SO & HBP
Homer Bailey: 6 IP, 6 H, 2B, 2 R, 2 BB & 7 SO
