Cliff Lee looks to cement his August Pitcher of the Month candidacy tonight in Cincinnati and will face off against another great hitting pitcher, our old friend Dontrelle Willis, who has had a decent comeback season for the Reds.
As good as Lee has been with the stick this season (.585 OPS, two home runs), Willis has been even better (.664 career OPS, 1.190 (!!) in 2011, and an .856 mark in 80 at-bats in 2007).
Moral of the Story: Fireworks from the Nine Hole!
