NLDS Game Two – Reds v. Giants

Game two — sort of a “must-win.” The lineups are the same as yesterday:

Reds
1. 2B Brandon Phillips
2. SS Zack Cozart
3. 1B Joey Votto
4. LF Ryan Ludwick
5. RF Jay Bruce
6. 3B Scott Rolen
7. C Ryan Hanigan
8. CF Drew Stubbs
9. SP Bronson Arroyo

Giants
1. CF Angel Pagan
2. 2B Marco Scutaro
3. 3B Pablo Sandoval
4. C Buster Posey
5. RF Hunter Pence
6. 1B Brandon Belt
7. LF Gregor Blanco
8. SS Brandon Crawford
9. SP Madison Bumgarner

In other news, the Game Three starter has been named Ryan Vogelsong. Tim Lincecum will be used out of the bullpen, with Barry Zito or Matt Cain (on short rest) starting Game Four. I must say, I’m not too keen on the idea of Zito starting over Lincecum. I’ve brought this up a few times, but the Reds’ offense has fared a lot worse against right-handed pitching than left-handed pitching, and the Giants should capitalize on this.

One thought on “NLDS Game Two – Reds v. Giants

  1. Unfortunately, we are royally screwed now. Top three in the order are like 3-26. We cannot win without scoring more than 2 runs in 18 innings. Poor poor play by the Giants. See you all next season.
