The Reds would appear to be getting a reprieve, on paper at least, when they welcome the last-place Florida Marlins (3-8) to town beginning tonight.
After getting knocked around pretty good in the final two games of their series in St. Louis, Reds pitchers will be looking to turn things around against the sub-$20 million payroll Fish.
Here are the probable pitching matchups for the three-game tilt at Great American Ball Park:
Tonight: LHP Brandon Claussen (0-1, 5.40 ERA) vs. RHP Brian Moehler (0-2, 13.50 ERA)
Tuesday: LHP Eric Milton (2-0 2.63 ERA) vs. LHP Julio Vargas (1-1, 5.73 ERA)
Wednesday: RHP Aaron Harang (2-1, 5.30 ERA) vs. LHP Dontrelle Willis (1-0. 1.93 ERA)
