Kenshin Kawakami, RHP (1-2, 4.76) Micah Owings, RHP (0-2, 5.59)


Scouting Report:
Braves: Since winning his Major League debut on April 11, Kawakami has gone winless in the two starts that have followed. The 33-year-old right-hander has been able to keep opponents off balance with a a slow curve that has helped him notch 17 strikeouts in 17 innings. He has surrendered one homer during each of his first three starts, and his 10 walks further indicate he isn't showing the same kind of control that was present during his days in Japan.

Reds: During a 7-2 loss to the Cubs on Tuesday, Owings worked 4 2/3 innings, with two of his five runs earned on five hits. He walked four and struck out three. After a slow start, he started cruising through the third and fourth innings but hit a wall in the fifth. Back-to-back one-out walks were followed by an error and led to three runs that chased him from the mound. In two career starts vs. Atlanta, Owings is 2-0 with a 3.46 ERA.

Nix grounds out so down 4 to 3 heading to the 9th Gonzales just missed tying it with a shot down the 3rd baseline but it was foul so we can't give up any runs because in the our half we would have the top of the order at the plate.

Yeah it was nice to see Owings pitch well and see us hit the ball better and hopefully Phillips will break out of his slump because we need him to hit. 10 and 8 early on is pretty good start especially since we really haven't played are best baseball the only 2 guys that are hitting the ball are Votto and Taveras everyone else has been struggling although Bruce is starting to come on lately to but still Encarnacion and Phillips have been awful at the plate.

On the mound Volquez has been pretty bad throwing way too many balls, Owings has got off to a rough start, Cueto has pitched pretty well, Harang has pitched great and the bullpen has been good except for Lincoln and Burton who have struggled but even with all of these players struggling we are still 2 games over 500.
