Game 55: at PIT
Reds lineup vs. Pirates
*Needless to say, this should be a pretty fun series. The Reds (33-21) and Pirates (34-20) have the fourth and second-best records in baseball, respectively.
*The schedule gets tough from here for the Reds. Of the next 28 games, only seven are against opponents currently under .500. Included are the Pirates twice, the first-place Cardinals, the first-place D-backs and the first-place Rangers in that stretch. Arizona, Oakland and Texas are part of one road trip.
*The Reds and Pirates will be wearing throwback uniforms
tonight tomorrow. Cincinnati’s uniforms will be replicas of the 1937 Cincinnati Tigers Negro League kits.
*Tonight also marks the 1,000th game to be played at PNC Park. The Reds were the winners of Game No. 1 here by an 8-2 score as Sean Casey’s first-inning home run off Todd Ritchie was the stadium’s first hit. Casey will be working as an analyst for Fox Sports Ohio this series.
