Well, we will officially the century mark of the 2013 season and the Reds are coming off an impressive offense clinic and clinched the season series against the Giants, winning 4 straight against the Giants. Today, we also have an unusual twin-bill with San Francisco the first Game at 7:05/4:05 and the Reds hosting the 10:15/7:15 game, a good business move for the Reds since some of the revenue will go to the Reds, the game is being counted as a ROAD game.
Since the Reds and Giants are doing a twin-bill today, the 26th man roster option is in tonight, and the Giants 26th man is a Cincinnati native.
Tony Cingrani: 7 IP, 2 H, 4 BB & 6 SO
