Chad Billingsley (5-5, 4.13) vs. Travis Wood (4-4, 5.38).
I'd been saying since the end of our last road trip that this is the homestand that could turn our season. Losing the first two games of this homestand, including using our best gun Clayton Kershaw and not earning a win, does not augur well for our next ten home games.
With Travis on the mound today against our pitcher-turned-slugger Billingsley, we'll either be coming around, or we'll end up like that guy at the end of the video below. Lose this game, and allow the Reds to sweep us at home, and the yolk's definitely on us.
