The Cincinnati Reds play a double header today, first as the away team then tonight as the home team. In a rare event the makeup
game from the July 4th rain out in Cincinnati will be played tonight in San Francisco.
The first game will see Cincinnati play as the road team as originally scheduled. Greg Reynolds will be making his first start as a Cincinnati Red in game one. Reynolds was last in the majors in 2011 as a member of the Colorado Rockies staff, Barry Zito will be on the mound for the Giants. Game one is scheduled for 7:05 pm ET time.
Game 2 tonight is the interesting game. The Reds will be wearing their white pants with the red jerseys like they wear on Sunday. Cincinnati will bat last in the game, thus making it a home game for the Reds, in San Francisco. Tony Cingrani will be pitching for the Reds tonight as Eric Surkamp will be making his first start for the Giants tonight at 10:15 ET.
The Reds will play in their first double header of the season and first since last August when the Reds split a double header with the Chicago Cubs.
After last nights beat down of the Giants the Reds offense looks to stay hot. The pitching tonight will be interesting especially in Game 1.
