Tyler Mahle looks to finish season of progress with strong start

The Reds (73-84) look to bounce back against Milwaukee after last night’s 4-2 loss. Tyler Mahle looks to follow up his strong previous start in Wrigley Field in his 24th start of the season.

Josh VanMeter returns to the lineup against a RHP. Bottom half is still Tucker Barnhart, Jose Iglesias, Phillip Ervin, Jose Peraza and the pitcher. Sigh.

Here are the splits for Reds hitters against right-handed pitchers:

Steve Mancuso is a lifelong Reds fan who grew up during the Big Red Machine era. He’s been writing about the Reds for more than ten years. Steve’s fondest memories about the Reds include attending a couple 1975 World Series games, being at Homer Bailey’s second no-hitter and going nuts for Jay Bruce at Clinchmas. Steve was also at all three games of the 2012 NLDS, but it’s too soon to talk about that.
