Cody Reed expected this back in April Glenn Robinson Jersey , for it to happen.Finally, the Cincinnati Reds are showing confidence in the left-hander, who was expected to be one of their four young starting pitchers this season but lasted only one start in that role.More Brewers coverageBrewers Final Pitch: Chacin dominates mound in Game 3 of NLCSChacin, Brewers blank Dodgers to take 2-1 lead in NLCSDespite struggles, No. 23 Badgers still have hope in Big TenStrong winds could be factor for Brewers, Dodgers in NLCS Game 3Photos of the Week: 10/7/18 – 10/13/18With the way runs are piling up in their series against the contending Milwaukee Brewers, the Reds probably could use a fresh arm on the mound.Reed (0-1, 3.68 ERA) appeared in four games, including one start, for Cincinnati in April, before being shipped back to make 17 starts at Triple-A Louisville. He rejoined the Reds earlier this month and has a 2.79 ERA in seven relief appearances.Now, Reed is getting the chance to start again and will take on Brewers left-hander Wade Miley (2-2, 2.32) in the final game of the three-game National League Central series Thursday at Great American Ball Park.Regardless of who is on the mound http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-manny-pina-jersey , look for some runs to be scored — there were a combined 41 runs scored in the first two games, starting with the Reds’ 9-7 victory Tuesday night.On Wednesday, Christian Yelich went 6-for-6 and hit for the cycle, and the Brewers overcame a four-run deficit to stay in the lead for the second NL wild-card berth with a 13-12 victory in 10 innings. Jesus Aguilar hit a long solo homer to center and Erik Kratz later added an RBI single in a two-run 10th, allowing Milwaukee to withstand Brandon Dixon’s solo homer in the bottom of the 10th.“It was one the craziest games I’ve ever been a part of,” Yelich told Fox Sports Wisconsin. “I don’t know how to describe it, honestly. It was nuts. A lot of stuff happened I’ve never seen before in a baseball game.“It was huge for us; we needed that win. Credit to the guys for staying with it, battling and pulling it out. It was huge.”The Reds couldn’t win despite scoring four times against Brewers All-Star reliever Josh Hader and getting four homers, including reliever Michael Lorenzen’s three-run drive — his fourth of the season — and Eugenio Suarez’s two-run shot. Billy Hamilton of the Reds went 4-for-5 and Mike Moustakas of the Brewers was 4-for-6, and each homered.Yelich’s cycle — a single, double, triple and homer — was the second in the majors this season; Mookie Betts had one one for the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 9. But Yelich’s cycle was the first to be combined with a 6-for-6 performance since Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers did it in 2009.Milwaukee is 10-5 against Cincinnati this season.Now, it’s Reed’s turn to face the Brewers. Reed is 1-9 with the Reds over the last three seasons Cecil Cooper Jersey , making 12 starts, but was given the chance to start again after the team decided to move right-handers Sal Romano and Robert Stephenson to the bullpen.Reed liked how interim manager Jim Riggleman used him in several high-leverage situations following his Aug. 13 recall from Louisville, and he has pitched 4 1/3 scoreless innings in his last four appearances.Riggleman called on Reed to face Anthony Rizzo of the Chicago Cubs with one out and the bases loaded Friday, despite Rizzo being 2-for-6 against him with two home runs. Reed got Rizzo to ground into a double play, although the Cubs went on to win 3-2 in 10 innings.“I stuck my hand out (to Riggleman) and said, ‘I appreciate you calling on me in that moment because this time last year and in my first year in ’16, that never would have happened,’ ” Reed told the team’s website. “I think it makes me more confident that he’s confident bringing me into that situation. As soon as the phone was ringing when (Matt) Harvey got into that little jam, I was thinking, ‘Please be me.’“A definite confidence boost that the manager has the belief in you in that moment.”It doesn’t hurt that Reed is left-handed.“His last few starts in Louisville indicated he’s moving in the right direction,” Riggleman said. “All things being equal, we’d like to have one left-hander in the rotation, at least. You’re not going to force that to happen. … Hopefully Cody would fit in there.”Reed is 0-1 with a 7.27 ERA in eight carrer appearances http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-hernan-perez-jersey , including one start, against Cincinnati, and he has not allowed any runs over 2 2/3 innings in his four appearances against the Reds this season.Miley is 4-2 with a 3.42 ERA in eight career starts against Cincinnati, including a 3-1 win at Great American Ball Park on May 2. In that game, he gave up one run and three hits in six innings in his first start of the season. Miley missed more than a month with a groin injury sustained during spring training. ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Dodgers got some help from a former Cardinal before their pivotal series against St. Louis.David Freese, who joined Los Angeles in a trade with the Pirates at the end of August, offered some insight on the Cardinals‘ young pitchers during the Dodgers’ hitters meeting. The advice paid off.Manny Machado homered and drove in three runs to back Clayton Kershaw, and the Dodgers beat the Cardinals 9-7 in the opener of a four-game series between playoff contenders.“Just better approaches,” Machado said. “Keep it simple. See the ball, hit the ball. The guy’s going to have to throw it over the plate and when we make good contact and when we’re at our best, we’re not going to miss those opportunities.”The Dodgers snapped a five-game losing streak against the Cardinals and moved to within one game of St. Louis for the final NL wild-card spot. The Cardinals, who went 22-6 in August, lost their second straight game and fell to 5-7 in September.Kershaw (8-5) Domingo Santana Jersey , pitching at Busch Stadium for the first time since taking the loss in Game 4 of the 2014 NL division series, struck out eight in six innings, allowing four runs — three earned — on eight hits and two walks.“I felt good tonight,” Kershaw said. “My curveball wasn’t great but my other two (pitches) I felt like I had good command tonight.”Freese tripled on a 14-pitch at-bat against Austin Gomber to score Chris Taylor and Machado in the first. Matt Kemp followed with a single to score Freese.“I threw him everything I had,” Gomber said. “I went back and looked at the video. I thought the first 13 pitches were good pitches and the 14th one wasn’t. He made me pay. Kind of just how the night went. They put some swings on pitches that I thought were good pitches.”Kershaw’s RBI single started a four-run fourth and drove Gomber (5-1) from the game. Taylor followed with an RBI double, and Justin Turner and Machado had sacrifice flies as the Dodgers went ahead 8-1.Machado went 3 for 4, and his solo homer in the seventh traveled 417 feet to center.“We did what we needed to do,” Machado said. “We got runners in scoring position. We got the runners in. Hopefully we can repeat it.”It was Gomber’s first loss in the majors. The rookie left-hander went three-plus innings and gave up a career-high seven runs on nine hits.“You saw us fighting and winning pitches,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “We have a lineup that can kind of grind starters and get a big hit and use the whole field.”Cardinals reliever Tyson Ross hit his second career home run in the fifth, sparking a three-run rally. He became the fourth Cardinals pitcher to homer this season, the most the team has had since 1966.Matt Carpenter had a pair of singles and scored twice. Marcell Ozuna had two hits, an RBI and scored a run.“I’m really proud of the guys tonight,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. “They one-through-nine battled to the end. That’s what this team does.”The Cardinals scored twice and brought the tying run to the plate in the ninth. Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen needed 29 pitches to finish the game in a non-save situation.“It got a little nerve-wracking there Eric Sogard Jersey ,” Roberts said. “Obviously he’s our guy, but he wasn’t sharp tonight and he found a way to close it out for us.”FAN-TASTICThe attendance was announced at 40,997, putting the Cardinals over the 3 million mark for the 15 straight season and 22nd overall.TRAINER’S ROOMDodgers: RHP Ross Stripling will move back into the rotation for Sunday’s game, moving LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu back to Monday and LHP Alex Wood to the bullpen.Cardinals: C Yadier Molina (left hamstring tightness) returned to the starting lineup after missing six games. He went 0 for 1 with a walk before leaving the game after the fourth inning with St. Louis trailing by seven. “He feels like he can catch without any issue, and clearly he’ll be a little compromised on the bases,” Shildt said. “It’s something that we’ll sacrifice him scoring maybe a run, of course clearly we might pinch-run for him late in the game if it’s applicable.”UP NEXTThe Cardinals send RHP Jack Flaherty (8-6, 2.92 ERA) to the mound Friday night. The Dodgers will counter with RHP Walker Buehler (6-5, 3.09) in a rematch of a duel between the rookies in a 3-1 Cardinals win at Dodger Stadium on Aug. 22. Flaherty struck out 10 in that game, giving up one hit (a solo homer by Joc Pederson) in six innings, while Buehler allowed three hits and struck out nine over seven scoreless innings.
