The Pirates face the Reds at Great American Ballpark.  Game time is 7:10 PM.  Juan Nicasio is on the mound for the Bucs, the severely struggling Alfredo Simon for the Reds.  Simon has allowed 35 hits, six of them HRs, and 11 walks in just 21 innings.  But he'll be wearing a Reds cap, so he'll probably shut the Pirates out.  For his career, he's held the Pirates to a .689 OPS.  His overall career opponents' OPS is .773.  Clint Hurdle will help him out by sitting John Jaso.

The lineups:

Reds

1.  Zack Cozart, SS
2.  Ty Cobb Billy Hamilton, CF (.287 career OBP, .366 vs. Pirates)
3.  Joey Votto, 1B
4.  Brandon Phillips, 2B
5.  Jay Bruce, RF
6.  Eugenio Suarez, 3B
7.  Adam Duvall, LF
8.  Tucker Barnhart, C
9.  Alfredo Simon, P

Pirates

1.  David Freese, 1B
2.  Andrew McCutchen, CF
3.  Gregory Polanco, RF

7.  Sean Rodriguez, 2B
8.  Jordy Mercer, SS
