Game Thread: Phillies at Reds 4/6/16

If anyone is capable of a complete game, it is Aaron Nola. Please, please let that happen.

Aaron Nola (0-0) 0.00 ERA

PHILLIES: Nola lived up to the hype in an impressive rookie season last year. Some thought he might pitch Opening Day, but by having him pitch the second game of the season, he lines up to pitch the Phillies’ home opener next week.

Brandon Finnegan (0-0) 0.00 ERA

REDS: Finnegan has four big league starts on his resume but will be a starter full time for the first time in his short career. He had a lackluster second half of spring, and the club is hoping the increased intensity will have him feeling sharper.
