The Reds are hitting the road today to take on the Milwaukee Brewers. Fortunately for the Reds it’s without Christian Yelich in the lineup for the Brewers, as his back is acting up once again.

Starting Pitchers

Sonny Gray 4.30 1.18 44.0 48 0 4
Gio Gonzalez 1.69 1.08 21.1 15 2 0

This is a match up, that on paper, should be a good one. Sonny Gray is still looking to pick up that first win of the season, but he’s pitched well enough to have a few. Gio Gonzalez hasn’t pitched a ton this season, but when he’s been on the mound he’s been successful. The Reds are stacking the lineup with right-handers, and Joseph Daniel Votto.
