Game Five: Eaton vs. Harang

New, comments

Mismatch time in the Buckeye State, right? Well, not necessarily. Reds ace Harang has poor career numbers against the Phils (1-3, 7.39), while Adam Eaton has never lost to the Reds in five career starts (2-0, 4.36).

Mostly what the team needs from Eaton today is six innings. The bullpen has pitched 10.1 frames--allowing just one run--in the last 48 hours. Chad Durbin and Tom Gordon were held out of last night's contest (that's why Romero pitched the 9th, evidently), so they're available today--as is closer Brad Lidge, who probably has been activated by the time you read this.
