Matchup/Game Thread Game # 57 vs. Reds

I'm Sorry. The guy's nickname should be 'Lizard'
Elizardo Ramirez Roy Oswalt
2 - 4, 4.11 5 - 3, 3.11

Roy Oswalt is coming off a start where he had to leave because of a strained hamstring. He hasn't won in over a month, and he even lost the last time he faced the Reds, which two months ago would have seemed unbelievable.

However, Roy has one small advantage going into today's matinee: he's a better pitcher than the guy the Reds have going.

Ramirez pitched well but lost April 30 in Houston, when he went 6 innings and gave up all three runs.
