Look­ing ahead

Reds RHP Homer Bai­ley (0-2, 27.00 ERA in 4M in­nings) at Rock­ies LHP Kyle Free­land (8-6, 3.84), 6:10 p.m. Tues­day, ROOT; 850 AM Free­land’s home-road splits tilt to­ward al­ti­tude, with a fa­vor­able 3.21 ERA at Coors Field against a 4.35 mark away from Colorado. Not sur­pris­ing, per­haps, for the 24-year-old rookie right-han­der from Den­ver’s Thomas Jef­fer­son High. His is­sue in June — as his ERA rose 31 points — was the long­ball. Free­land, who con­tin­ues to force more ground­balls than nearly any other Na­tional League starter, gave up six home runs in six starts last month, more than dou­bling his sea­son to­tal. Five of those six were hit on the road. Bai­ley re­turned from the dis­abled list af­ter surgery to re­move bone spurs from his el­bow, but he has yet to reach the fourth in­ning in two starts. Wed­nes­day: Reds RHP Scott Feld­man (7-5, 3.78 ERA) at Rock­ies RHP Jon Gray (1-0, 3.93), 6:40 p.m., ROOT Thurs­day: Reds TBA at Rock­ies RHP Tyler Chat­wood (6-9, 4.41), 1:10 p.m., ROOT Fri­day: White Sox at Rock­ies, pitch­ers TBA, 6:40 p.m., ROOT
