As Jaymes pointed out in his series preview, Cincinnati has been a boon to Brewer bats this year...of course, they've been a boon to everybody's bats, and the Brewers probably would have trouble scoring off of a tee at this point, so there's that.

Former good pitcher Homer Bailey (3-6, 8.86) goes for the Reds, and faces current good pitcher Jimmy Nelson (9-5, 3.24) in the opener of this three game set at Miller Park. Jonathan Villar moves back to the lead-off spot, as Craig Counsell tries anything and everything in his power to generate some runs. The lineup is back to one that was oft-used in the early season.
