Game 4: Pirates-Reds

It’s the battle of the two undefeated teams in the NL Central. The event will take place tonight at 7:10 at Great American Ballpark. With both teams coming off of a sweep, their confidence is riding high.

Pittsburgh is coming off a magnificent series opener against the Cardinals where they batted .300 and scored 15 runs in three games. When everyone was worried about the offenses spring training struggles, they put all of that to bed. Andrew McCutchen lead the charge batting .455, showing the decision of putting him in the two hole was wise.

Francisco Liriano had an amazing opening day lineup where he struck out 10 batters, tying his own opening day record. Tonight, he looks to continue this pace as he will take the mound vs the Reds.

With the two teams expected to go on to much different roads this season, it would be wise for the Pirates to take advantage of this early schedule and go on a wild April run. I’m not saying lets sweep the Reds, but let’s hopefully pull off another sweep!

Pirates lineup:

  1. Jaso 1B
  2. McCutchen CF
  3. Freese 3B
  4. Marte LF
  5. Cervelli C
  6. Polanco RF
  7. Harrison 2B
  8. Mercer SS
  9. Liriano P
