Edison Volquez goes for the Reds tonight

Can Volquez take his league leading ERA under 1 tonight? Can he give the Reds two wins in a row? In a few short hours all these questions will be answered. We’ll be back to talk about it later.

Update: The Reds won the game 5 to 3, with Volquez earning another victory. Joey Votto hit his 8th home run of the season, but the loss was costly because Jeff Keppinger fractured his patella fouling a ball off of it and he’ll most likely miss the rest of the season.

Most likely Paul Janish (.263 career hitter in the minors) will be brought up from AAA Louisville to play shortstop.
