From my pal @Bongreatness…
Tonight is the 2nd annual Reds Racing Night at GABP, presented by Kroger. NASCAR displays and car simulators will be present throughout the Kroger Fan Zone tonight for fans to enjoy and we’ll welcome NASCAR drivers Bobby Labonte & Kevin Harvick, who will offer up a simultaneous first pitch during pregame ceremonies tonight.

From our friends at Elias Sports Bureau…
The Reds and Pirates begin a big NL Central 4-game series tonight at GABP. For the series, the Pirates have arranged a left-right-left-right pitching rotation: LHP Francisco Liriano (tonight), RHP Charlie Morton (tomorrow), LHP Jeff Locke (Wednesday) and RHP Brandon Cumpton (Thursday).
Of the 4, only Locke has given up a home run this season; he’s allowed 5 homers – none to left-handed hitters.
Here’s hoping the boys in red put several over the wall during this 4-game showdown!
I’ll have more in a bit.
