The Cincinnati Reds will look to finish off San Francisco tonight as they host the Giants for game three of the NLDS. Cincinnati has not won a home playoff game in 17 years, but after a 9-0 win over San Francisco last night, the Redlegs are hopeful they can end the streak. Cincinnati will send Homer Bailey to the mound. Bailey was 13-10 this season with a 3.68 ERA. The Giants will counter with Ryan Vogelsong, who was 14-9 with a 3.37 ERA this season. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pregame at 5 and first pitch at 5:30.
In other Reds news, hurler Johnny Cueto said yesterday that he can return to throw in the NLDS if the series with the Giants goes more than three games. Cueto returned to Cincinnati on Sunday to get treatment for his back spasms. Cueto had a 2.78 ERA this season and is an NL Cy Young candidate.
The Cleveland Indians introduced Terry Francona as their new manager yesterday. Francona signed a four-year contract to manage the Indians after Cleveland fired former manager Manny Acta on September 27th. Cleveland finished in fourth in the AL Central with a 68-94 record. Francona has won over 1,000 games during his career and managed the Red Sox to two World Series titles.

The Bengals are unsure whether Brian Leonard or Cedric Peerman will replace him. Cincinnati heads to Cleveland on Sunday. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pregame at 11:30 and kickoff at 1.
