Gamethread #149: Reds (84-66) at Brewers (69-79)

New, comments

The Reds can't clinch the central in Milwaukee, which I guess is good.

Follow the jump for the usual.

Chris Capuano (3-4, 4.11 ERA) will be starting for the Crew tonight. In his last outing he pitched 6.1 innings and allowed 3 ER against the Astros to lose his fourth game. The south paw had a rough start against the Pirates on Aug. 28th, but since then he has looked pretty good. He has a 2.45 ERA and a .194 opponent batting average over his last three starts. In his career against the Reds Cappy is 2-3 with a 4.88 ERA. Four Reds have faced Capuano at least 10 times. If I were him, I'd watch out for Brandon Phillips.

Homer Bailey (3-3, 4.85 ERA) will be on the hill for the Reds tonight. The Reds are still waiting for their former first round pick (7th overall in 2004) to live up to his first round pick status. In his last outing he exited after only 3 innings with dizziness. In those three innings he gave up 3 runs on 4 H and 5 BB against the D-Backs. In his career against the Brewers Bailey is 0-2 with a 6.44 ERA. Four Brewers have faced Bailey at least 10 times. If I were him, I'd watch out for Prince Fielder.

PA Slash line
Ryan Braun 15 .214/.267/.500
Prince Fielder 14 .400/.571/.900
Corey Hart 12 .182/.250/.182
