Probable starting pitchers

Nick Lodolo will toe the rubber for the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday, April 8. After Hunter Greene failed to make it through five innings for the second consecutive start, the Reds will be looking to Lodolo to settle things down and preserve the bullpen. During his last start, Lodolo went five frames and struck out nine.

The Philadelphia Phillies will counter with left-hander Bailey Falter. The 25-year-old struck out three and allowed two earned runs on seven hits during his first start of the season. The last time the Reds lineup faced a left-handed starter, Drew Smyly surrendered six runs on nine hits.
