Forgot to mention this in the Game 126 blog, Patrick Corbin is really good against the Reds offense, sorry for not mentioning that. Either way, Reds are back on the rebound and will be facing Brandon McCarthy tonight while Mike Leake faces the opposition. McCarthy doesn’t have a track record against the Reds, but has faced some personal Reds ie Shin-Soo Choo and Cesar Izturis.
Brandon McCarthy: Debut against the Reds lineup
Mike Leake: 6 1/3 IP, 8 H, 2B, HR, 4 R, BB & SO
*McCarthy last 7 starts have averaged 6 1/3 IP, 6 H, 2 R (EARNED), 2 BB & 3 SO. McCarthy will likely pitch 6 2/3 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 4 SO & HR tonight.
