The Los Angeles Dodgers are riding high after picking up an extra-innings win in their series opener with the Reds. As the club continues to make a push for the National League's second wild card spot, they enter Saturday just two games back in the standings.
The Reds begin the day with a magic number of one to win the NL Central. With the Cubs and Cardinals playing three hours before first pitch is scheduled at Great American Ballpark, Cincinnati could end up winning the division today regardless of whether they win or lose.
The lineups for this afternoon's game have been released. First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. PT, and the game will be televised on FOX.
It should be noted that if the Reds do indeed clinch the division with a Cardinals loss, they could elect to pull a few of their starters before first pitch.
