Reds lineup vs. D-backs
*Joey Votto’s rehab assignment begins tonight at Class A Dayton.
*Here’s an interesting tidbit out of the Reds game notes: the Reds’ bullpen leads the Major Leagues in ERA (2.81) and averages 10.06 strikeouts per 9 innings, which according to Elias Sports Bureau would be the highest season average for a relief staff in Major League history.
*LHP Wade Miley is going against Johnny Cueto tonight. This could be a very enjoyable matchup. And for a matchup inside the matchup, the two leading candidates for NL Rookie of the Year will be in opposition between Miley and Todd Frazier. Not that the outcome of one game will settle who might win it, but fun nonetheless.
