CIN http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/1590/4216852qi.jpg (http://imageshack.us) Aaron Harang, RHP (5-1, 4.02)
PIT http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/3183/4309044dk.jpg (http://imageshack.us) Paul Maholm, LHP (1-4, 5.03)

Scouting Report:
Harang kept his streak of five straight winning decisions alive by getting a no-decision during the Reds' 9-6 win over Washington on Wednesday. The right-hander gave up four runs on seven hits over six innings, including a pair of home runs.

After a rough start, Maholm has turned in three straight encouraging starts, allowing just five runs over 18 2/3 innings. The 23-year-old has rarely been at his sharpest, though, having allowed 32 baserunners over that span. In three career starts against the Red Legs, Maholm is 1-1 with a 3.15 ERA.

Ah well. Lets just get a little spark 2nite and start another win streak. We got a minimum of 7 Games to win to keep the 15 Wins a month pace Id like to see 3 Wins here... we should sweep them. We should have last time as well :(

In order to keep pace with STL all season we gotta win DIVISION GAMES.. cant have the worst team in our division Stealing wins

Looking at the radar, rain is moving out of Pittsburgh. However, there is some more rain behind the section that moved out recently and it has some strong parts to it, so my guess is, even though it's not raining right now, the umps will wait until this second small storm passes through, and then we'll get some baseball in. So start up your coffee, because we're going to up a little bit later tonight.
