Friday night's matchup features Braden Looper (4-3) against Johnny Cueto (4-2).  The Brewers try to snap out of a rescent loosing skid which has tripped them up 5 out of their last 6.  Cincy comes in riding a four game winning streak.

Some players to watch with the Reds facing Looper:

Alex Gonzalez (.364 1 RBI against Looper)

Ramon Hernandez (1.000 against Looper)

Willy Taveras (.417, 1 HR, 2 RBI against Looper)

Joey Votto--always dangerous (.273, 1 HR, 2 RBI against Looper)

Jay Bruce--Brewer Killer (.143, 1 HR 1 RBI)

Big Name Brewers against Cueto:

Ryan Braun (.111)

Mike Cameron (.000)

Prince Fielder (.250, 1 RBI)

Bill Hall (.333 1 HR, 2 RBI)

JJ Hardy (.222)

Jason Kendall (.571, 1 RBI)

This is an important series for both teams.  Cincy comes in hot.  Brewers come in stumbling.  For some reason the Reds seem to have the Brewers number lately.  As big as a Brewer fan as I am and as much as I want them to win, I look for Cincy to take game 1 of this series.  I think Cincy gets to Looper early.  I think Cueto dominates the Brewers silent bats.  Look for a Reds 5-1 victory tonight.  Wish the prediction was better.
