From today's #Reds Gamenotes: The Reds' 2.71era in July was their best in any calendar month since May 1990 (2.56).

Brian Giesenschlag ‏@FOX19Brian 35m

Since June 14th #reds have hit .208 with RISP. 20-22 in that stretch. Cards lead MLB with RISP. .335 for season.

Brian Giesenschlag ‏@FOX19Brian 37m

Just talked with Cueto. Feels good. No setbacks. Hasn't started throwing. #reds.

Jamie Ramsey ‏@Jamieblog 1h

Current #Reds are a combined 0-for-12 against Shelby Miller. I'm guessing the 0-for ends tonight.

• Tailgate on the Terrace: The Mobile Bud Bar is located outside the gates before tonight’s game. This pregame party features Budweiser beverages at below ballpark pricing.

On the mound it is Arroyo v Shelby Miller

Shelby Miller, RHP
10-7, 2.79 ERA

Miller has looked more in sync with his command in two starts since taking a 12-day break. He allowed two earned runs in 5 2/3 innings on Sunday but continues to battle efficiency issues early in his starts.

Bronson Arroyo, RHP
9-8, 3.26 ERA

Arroyo gave up three runs in 5 1/3 innings against the Dodgers on Saturday, but felt fortunate it wasn't much worse. He felt off during his bullpen session, lacked command on his breaking ball and felt his fastball was off a tick.

The Reds bullpen coach, Juan Lopez, goes by the nickname Porky.

Thank God Molina is out. Seems like he always came up big off Bronson (and everyone else for that matter).

Anyone have Bronson's numbers against the Cards? I just don't trust him against them at all.

Carpenter 2B,
Beltran RF,

Freese 3B,
Jay CF,

Descalso SS,
Miller P.

Still too early to call this a must win series? We're at home and already a weeks worth of games behind 2 teams in the division. Really need to start making a move forward if sights are being set on more than a wild card.

Definitely won't be likely if they fall 5+ back of 2 teams, but with all the games these 3 still have against each other it wouldn't be the end of a division title shot.

Anyone have Bronson's numbers against the Cards? I just don't trust him against them at all.He will be missed. Cruz, his replacement went 3 for 4 last night, and Holliday is crushing the ball for the last 4 or 5 games. But Matt Carpenter has become a black hole in the leadoff spot. 1st slump of his major league career I think.

As I stated in the other Game Thread, I hope for a lively series, with no pitching duels!:beerme:

If the Reds are going to win the NL Central, it starts with this series. They have to win this series. A sweep puts them right back in the thick of things. The Pirates are due for a drop off, IMO.

It's not likely that Miller gives up 3 runs the whole game.

The REDS bats are going to have to rise above the occasion.

Arroyo has been very good in both starts he has had with Cincinnati in the playoffs.

However this is why I would never start Arroyo in one game winner take all situation. When he doesn't have it, it is ugly.

heīs in a "slump" pretty long now... I never liked the contract because I think itīs too long and too much

same can be said about votto, but votto is a different kind of player and character... his eye and his work ethics wonīt change that much (of course heīll lose power at the end of his contract)

phillips thinks and dreams to be a clean up power hitter and the star of the team.. the problem is, that he is neither... his had lots of rbi because he had "clutch" hits.. but I donīt believe in clutch, I think it was "luck"

Reds were up by two games. They left that series one game down to one team. Not exactly insurmountable. If they get swept here (which I think won't happen) they would be seven behind the Cards and about the same behind the Pirates. Not exactly comparable situations.
