Game 3 lost, who for Game 4?
The Reds wanted to avoid the issue of who might pitch Game 4 by winning Game 3. That did not happen with a 2-1 loss in 10 innings to the Giants on Tuesday. It was all lined up for Cincinnati. Homer Bailey was sensation with one-hit, one-run baseball over seven innings. He took a no-hitter into the sixth.
But a big chance in the bottom of the first yielded only one run and a passed ball by Ryan Hanigan and error by Scott Rolen in the 10th scored the go-ahead run. You can read all about it on MLB.com/Reds.com — we’ve got it covered.

The Reds have not named a Game 4 starter, other than that Dusty Baker expected either Mat Latos or Mike Leake. Obviously, if it’s Leake, Johnny Cueto is coming off of the roster.
During an interview with MLB Network, Bailey tipped the Reds’ hand by saying it would be Leake.
