Winning the game is a different story. Homer has only beaten the Cards twice in the past three years.
Westbrook lost 20 pounds in the offseason, came into camp in great shape and allowed only 12 hits in 24 preseason innings.
Should be a good matchup.
Bailey also lost 15 pounds, coming into camp in great shape, then got shelled in a few of his outings.
And none of the spring stats mean doodly squat. I hope it is not a good game. I will not complain at all about an 8-1 Reds butt whipping.
