FIRST PLACE REDS FACE ELIMINATED BREWERS

FIRST PLACE REDS FACE ELIMINATED BREWERS

Over the weekend the Cincinnati Reds lost two of three games in Arizona, the St. Louis Cardinals won three of four against San Diego, and the Milwaukee Brewers won two of three against the San Francisco Giants. The Cardinals remain six games behind the Reds in the NL Central as Cincinnati's magic number was reduced to eight games with twelve games remaining for the Reds in the regular season. The Giants took over sole possession of first place in the NL West by just half a game over the San Diego Padres and 1.5 over the Colorado Rockies while the Milwaukee Brewers were eliminated from post season action. The Reds will begin a three game series against the Brewers on Monday. As the final days of the 2010 season disintegrate it seems that the teams that will surely enjoy post season action will be Philadelphia, Cincinnati, and Atlanta. The San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants, and Colorado Rockies will decide their own fate over the next two weeks as only one will emerge from the NL West.

From JOHN FAY:

Winning as many games as possible is important because getting the second seed for the playoffs is huge. You want to avoid playing Philadelphia, owners of the best record, in the first round.

Getting the second seed is the difference between playing Atlanta with the home field advantage or playing Philadelphia without the field advantage.

The Braves currently lead the Wild Card, but they canít play Philadelphia in the first round because they are in the same division.

Right now, the Reds are tied with Giants for the second best record of the division leaders. The Reds have to finish ahead of the Giants because the Giants hold the tie breaker.




MONDAY: Homer Bailey (3-3, 4.85) vs. Chris Capuano (3-4, 4.11) at 8:10pm

Winless since he defeated the Dodgers (7IP, 4H, 1ER, 6K) on August 20, Homer Bailey will likely start against the Brewers on Monday despite issues involving dizziness that caused him to exit the game during his last start against Arizona after just three innings. In five career starts against the Brewers, Bailey is 0-2 with a 6.44 ERA. During two starts against the Brewers this season (May 18 and Aug 30), Bailey went a total of 13 innings, allowed six earned runs on twelve hits, and struck out eight batters. Both games were won by Cincinnati.

During his six major league seasons (45-52, 4.37) Chris Capuano has faced the Reds eight times during his career, winning two, and losing three while posting a 4.88 ERA. Capuano has faced the Reds once this season. On July 27 he lasted just three innings as he allowed four earned runs on six hits in an eventual 12-4 Cincinnati victory.

TUESDAY: Edinson Volquez (3-3, 4.99) vs. Dave Bush (7-12, 4.75) at 8:10pm

In five career starts against the Brewers, Volquez is 2-1 with a 6.84 ERA. In twelve career starts against the Reds, Dave Bush is 2-4 with a 7.07 ERA. Neither pitcher has had much success against their next opponent, but the Reds 7-1 record when facing the Brewers this season could be the deciding factor.

WEDNESDAY: Johnny Cueto (12-5, 3.35) vs. Randy Wolf (12-11, 4.32) at 8:10pm

Both pitchers will be attempting to acquire their thirteenth win on Wednesday. Randy Wolf will be trying to beat the Reds for the tenth time during his career. In eighteen career starts against the Reds, Wolf is 9-2 with a 5.40 ERA. Wolf has received a no-decision against the Reds this season (Aug 30) and received the win during Milwaukee's only victory over the Reds this season on July 26. Cueto will have his eyes on his third career victory against the Brewers. In seven career starts, Cueto is 2-1 with a 2.78 ERA against the Brewers. During two starts against the Brewers this season, Cueto pitched a total of thirteen innings, allowed just two earned runs on twelve hits, and struck out nine while walking two. Both games were Cincinnati wins.
