Game 142: vs. LAD

This is Jeremy Warnemuende covering for Mark for the weekend. He’ll be back on Monday for the Cubs series.

Reds Lineup

Shin-Soo Choo 8
Brandon Phillips 4
Joey Votto 3
Jay Bruce 9
Ryan Ludwick 7
Todd Frazier 5
Zack Cozart 6
Devin Mesoraco 2
Mike Leake 1

Phillips remains in the two-hole after exiting last night’s game with a left quad contusion. He said he hyper-extended his leg turning a double play in the sixth inning, and “it was the first time I ever felt something in my quad.”

“I’m just going to try to play smart,” Phillips said. “I talked to [manager Dusty Baker] about it, he just told me to play smart and try to do my best.”

Mesoraco is another name worth mentioning, as he’s making his first start since Monday. He’s been battling an issue in his left hamstring since Sunday’s game in Colorado.

Sure glad Dusty didn’t listen to those calling for Votto’s benching.
