    I'm looking forward to this game, being that it is basically in my backyard...

    ... I hated working over this past weekend because I had to miss the first 3 games of the series... The game is on Directv channel 661 for those with the expanded sports package.

    Pirates-Reds Preview
    STATS LLC

    The Cincinnati Reds were hoping a four-game home series against the Pittsburgh Pirates would help them return to their winning ways following a mediocre road trip.

    So far, that hasn't happened.

    The defending NL Central champion Reds hope to avoid losing a home series to the Pirates for the first time in three years in Monday night's series finale.

    After splitting a six-game road trip, Cincinnati (9-6) had reason to believe it would be able to turn things around against the Pirates. The Reds entered this series 5-1 at home this year, and 12-4 against Pittsburgh at Great American Ball Park since the start of 2009.

    However, the Reds have dropped two of the first three to the Pirates this weekend, and are in danger of losing their first home series to them since Sept. 2-4, 2008.

    Cincinnati fell behind 4-0 after one inning Sunday, as Edinson Volquez again got off to a poor start. The Reds rallied to take a 5-4 lead after five innings, but couldn't hang on and lost 7-6.

    Jay Bruce finished 4 for 5 with two RBIs for Cincinnati, which has dropped three of four games after winning eight of its first 11.

    Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen and Jose Tabata began Sunday's game with back-to-back homers -- only the third time that's happened in Pirates history.

    McCutchen later singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and finished with three hits. The center fielder was just 3 for 31 (.097) in his previous eight games.

    "It was just a matter of time, that's all," said McCutchen, who raised his average to .250. "All I could do was laugh about it because I knew that's not me. Now it's starting to turn around."

    Things are also starting to look relatively positive for the Pirates (7-8), who are hoping to get back to .500 as they aim to end their string of 18 consecutive losing seasons. They finished 48 games below the break-even mark a year ago.

    Pittsburgh now turns to Kevin Correia (2-1, 2.70 ERA), who tries to bounce back from a rough outing.

    After posting a 1.38 ERA to win his first two outings with his new team, the former San Diego Padres right-hander had a no-hitter through five innings against Milwaukee on Wednesday, but yielded four runs and four hits in the sixth. He wound up allowing six runs and five hits in six-plus innings of a 6-0 loss.

    Correia is 5-0 with a 4.07 ERA in eight career starts against the Reds.

    Cincinnati counters with Travis Wood (1-1, 3.86), who allowed one run and five hits in 6 2/3 innings of Wednesday's 3-2 loss to San Diego but didn't receive a decision. The left-hander got back on track after permitting six runs in five innings of a 13-2 loss to Arizona in his previous outing April 8.

    Wood had one of the best outings of his 2010 rookie season against the Pirates, giving up two hits in seven innings of a 4-0 victory Aug. 2 at Pittsburgh.

    This series with the Reds was timed perfectly "weather-wise"... They are calling for strong storms here tonight (after the game), and continuing Monday and Tuesday...

    Ha Ha!... Well, there seems to be a few folks visiting the GDTs with the Reds over the last few days, and hopefully it continues tonight... I have nothing else to do now that I got everything set-up "appointment-wise" to get my house on the market and get the freak outta here (leaving Brenda in the dust, and hopefully choking on it)... I'll do my best to give you a quality "play-by-play"....

    For several years I've been known as "Your Friendly Neighborhood Bungle Basher", but I always sorta liked the Reds... Maybe just because I live here, and I see them quite frequently....

    ... I have recently found cause to HATE everything Cincinnati... So "look out", folks!.....

    No fireworks after any Reds HRs tonight (reference the fireworks thread in the MLB Room)....

    .... Hell, I hope they don't have any HRs to miss the celebration....
