The quality starts keep coming
Reds lineup vs. Pirates
*UPDATED lineup above with Fred Lewis in RF now, batting sixth and Scott Rolen moving up to the 5th spot. Jay Bruce was scratched because he is sick. Bruce was feeling under the weather during Tuesday’s game vs. the Cubs.
“You could see it in his eyes,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “You kind of want to quarantine him so it doesn’t spread around. That’s the thing that you hate the most, as a team; when things become an epidemic.”
*Reds starting pitchers are 8-0 with a 2.37 ERA in the last 13 games since May 3. There have been five straight quality starts and nine of the last 10. No doubt this has been the biggest reason for the recent boost to the team.
*The club’s 13 come-from-behind wins are second in the Majors behind the Rockies’ 15.
*Fox Sports Ohio has picked up the June 8 Reds game vs. the Cubs that begins at 12:35 p.m. ET. The move was made because ESPN converted the Reds’ June 12 game at the Giants to an exclusive Sunday Night Baseball broadcast.
