Right-handed heavy for Rodriguez
Reds lineup vs. Astros
*For those wondering where Jay Bruce is in this lineup, he is 1-for-23 (.043) with 13 strikeouts lifetime vs. Wandy Rodriguez.
*Because the ERA qualifier is one inning pitched per team’s game, Johnny Cueto and his 1.72 ERA will no longer qualify for the Major League ERA lead after the game tonight. That title will be passed on to the likely soon-to-be suspended Jared Weaver of the Angels (1.88 ERA)
*The 4-3 loss in 10 innings last night to Houston was the Reds’ 11th walk-off loss of the season. That would be the most in the Major Leagues and the Reds’ highest total since they suffered 14 walkoff losses in 1993.
