Janish starts at 3B

Reds lineup vs. Brewers
Stubbs 8
Bruce 9
Votto 3
Phillips 4
Renteria 6
Hermida 7
Hernandez 2
Janish 5
Leake 1

*Interesting lineup tonight. Dusty Baker indicated he was looking at possibly pairing Janish and Renteria on the left side of the infield. Miguel Cairo has done a good job filling in for Scott Rolen, but at 36, he’ll need breaks to stay fresh if he wants to stay productive.

*It’s also a good chance for Renteria to snap out of his funk. Although batting .360, he’s 2-for-13 over his last five games. Both hits were singles.

*Hermida is also searching for first hit as a Red. He is 0-for-9, mostly as a pinch-hitter. This is his second start.
