Career stats

Lorenzen will be coming off of the worst start of his big league career -- 2 1/3 innings with eight earned runs and seven hits, including two homers in a 17-6 loss. Once again, some inopportune walks and strike zone command issues hurt him.

Cole tries to stay ahead of the MLB class with his 15th win, but it will have to come against a team (0-3, 5.53 in five starts vs. Reds) and in a place (4.50 ERA in three winless starts at GABP) that have been rough on him.

Career stats

Morton is winless in his past five starts. Solving his first-inning troubles would help snap that streak: In his 12 starts, he has allowed 16 runs (15 earned) in the first. Undefeated in past six GABP starts (3-0, 2.70 ERA).

Whether or not Leake is still around to make this start remains to be seen until Friday's Deadline passes. But he?s been as good as anyone lately with a 4-0 record and a 0.60 ERA in his past four starts -- that?s two earned runs over 30 innings.

John Lackey looks for his 10th consecutive quality start when he faces a Reds team that he dominated his last outing. The veteran righty allowed just two hits in eight innings against Cincinnati on July 29, but picked up the loss in a 1-0 decision.
