Battle of the rebuilds.

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a few years since the Royals and Reds have met in interleague play, but these two last place teams will clash for a two-game series, starting tonight with two pitchers that have ERA’s north of 5.76.

Expect the ball to be flying tonight. Ian Kennedy takes the mound for the Royals, owning a robust 1.6 HR/9 allowed. The Royals will be facing Sal Romano, who’s allowing 1.7 HR/9.
