The Giants have been terribly inconsistent in the month of August. Their schedule isn't doing them any favors, either. The Cincinnati Reds are coming off some good wins and, sitting in first place in their division, they're looking to walk into AT&T park with a certain stride that may or may not exude cockiness. Perhaps that means they'll take the Giants lightly, or perhaps not.
Joey Votto will be leading the charge against Giants pitcher Matt Cain. Cain needs to right the ship after less-than-stellar play in his last outing. Edinson Volquez takes the mound tonight for the Reds, and he'll look to prey on the struggling Giants hitters.
The Giants need this series more than the Reds do, so it will be interesting to see how it goes down.
