Homer Bailey went 5 2/3 ininngs Tuesday in Columbus. One hit, one unearned run, two walks, seven strikeouts. 92 pitches. The hit was a bunt single.
That hamstring must be OK. He ran the bases a couple of times.
Again, I know the Reds want him to work on things. I know they don't want to rush him. But if it's my club, Kirk Saarloos has to be pretty good tonight, or Bailey is starting for the Reds in five days.
