PITCHING MATCHUP: Reds RH Trevor Bauer (10-10, 4.06 ERA) vs. Pirates RH Dario Agrazal (2-3, 4.09)

Although he registered 11 strikeouts for the second time in three outings, Bauer lost his second consecutive start last time out when he allowed three runs (two earned) and five hits over seven innings against San Diego. He was hammered for nine runs over 4 1/3 innings at Washington in his previous turn, marking the third straight road start that he failed to get through five innings. Bauer has won both career starts against the Pirates while posting a 1.35 ERA.

Agrazal made his first relief appearance of the year for Pittsburgh after he was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis, tossing two hitless innings against Washington on Wednesday. The 24-year-old rookie from Panama lost his last three starts before he was sent to the minors, including an outing at Cincinnati on July 31 in which he lasted 3 2/3 innings and gave up three runs on six hits while striking out five. Agrazal surrendered seven home runs during the three-start skid.
