|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.
