SAN FRANCISCO -- Jay Bruce and Joey Votto will take their hot bats up against one of baseballs worst pitchers against left-handed hitters Tuesday night when the Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants meet for a second time in their three-game series. Cheap Hydro Flask Wholesale .Bruce bombed his 22nd and 23rd home runs of the season and Votto extended his hitting streak to 10 games since the All-Star break in the Reds 7-5 win over the Giants in the series opener Monday night.On Tuesday, the Reds will get an opportunity to tee off against Giants right-hander Matt Cain, who has struggled big-time against lefty swingers this season.Cain has allowed a .352 batting average, fifth worst in the majors, against left-handed hitters in 2016. It is not the only area in which the 31-year-old has had more than his share of issues.Cain has pitched into the seventh inning in just two of his 12 starts. One reason: Opponents are hitting a major-league-high .468 against him after his 75th pitch of a game.In the last-place Reds, Cain will be facing a team with a 39-60 record. Such matchups have not worked in his favor this season, either.Among qualifying starting pitchers, he has the majors worst record (0-3) and eighth-worst ERA (6.66) against teams under .500.Cain is coming off one of his worst efforts, when he was bombed for three home runs in just 2 1/3 innings in an 11-7 loss at Boston last Wednesday. He gave up six hits and five runs to the Red Sox, dropping his record to 1-6 while raising his ERA to 5.88.With Jake Peavy adding three to the total in Mondays loss, the Giants have allowed a major-league-high 19 homers in their nine games since the All-Star break.The long ball is hurting us right now, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. We just need to find a way to get a quality start.Cains opponent on Tuesday will be Reds rookie Cody Reed, who has had troubles of his own this season. The left-hander is still searching for his first big-league win, as he is 0-4 with a 6.75 ERA in six starts.Reed is one of just six pitchers who remain winless this season despite making six or more starts this year.Unlike Cain, the 23-year-old could take some positive momentum into the game. Reed pitched his best game in his most recent outing, allowing just five hits and two unearned runs in six innings against the Atlanta Braves on July 19.The Reds lost the game 5-4 in 11 innings.Another positive for Reed is that he will be backed by a hot bullpen. Right-handers Jumbo Diaz and Raisel Iglesias and lefty closer Tony Cingrani retired 12 of the 13 batters they faced to save right-hander Anthony DeSclafanis win in Mondays series opener.The Cincinnati bullpen has compiled a fine 2.42 ERA in the month of July.We talk about it a lot ... the pitching staff we envision, Reds manager Bryan Price said after Mondays win. Were getting closer.Reed has never faced the Giants. His .311 batting average allowed is the 19th worst in the majors for guys with at least six starts, and only slightly lower than Cains .316, which is No. 16 on the list.Reed allowed at least one homer in every start except his most recent. Eight of the nine homers he served up came in just 107 at-bats against righty hitters.His .327 average allowed to righties is the 16th highest in the majors for pitchers with six or more starts.The Reds enter the game as one of baseballs hottest teams since the All-Star break, having won seven of 10.The Giants, on the other hand, have lost eight of nine. Cheap Hydro Flask Water Bottle . Reassurance came from Paul Tesori, his caddie and close friend whose newborn son is in intensive care in a Florida hospital. "Paul sent me a text this morning, just told me he loved me and wanted to go out and fight as hard as I would any other day," Simpson said Sunday after doing just that. Cheap Hydro Flask For Sale .2 billion agreement with Rogers Communications for the leagues broadcast and multimedia rights. http://www.cheaphydroflaskonline.com/ . Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake, B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the Canucks 4-1. BOSTON -- Sean The Cannon Gannons claim to fame was a bloody, bare-knuckle fight he had with another mixed martial arts fighter. His day job as a Boston police officer hasnt been quite as action-packed.For the past decade, Gannon has been restricted to desk duty because police officials say his cognitive abilities have been affected by concussions he received during his fighting career. The city says public safety could be jeopardized if Gannon is allowed to work as an armed street cop.Gannon, however, insists he can fully perform all the tasks of his job as a police officer and has been cleared for duty by numerous doctors. Next week, the Massachusetts top court will be asked to decide whether his lawsuit against the city can proceed to trial. Oral arguments are scheduled for Dec. 8.Gannon began his career as a Boston police officer in 1996. In his spare time, he practiced martial arts -- including judo, aikido and jiujitsu -- and in 2002 he began to compete as an amateur mixed martial arts fighter.Gannon gained notoriety on social media in 2004 when he beat well-known fighter Kevin Kimbo Slice Ferguson in an unsanctioned fight. A 10-minute video of the brawl was widely distributed online.Gannons lawyers say he received two concussions during his career, both in 2004, and stopped fighting in 2005.In 2006, Gannon was placed on desk duty after he didnt report to work one day and the police department learned that he had a concussive syndrome from his fighting, as well as a diagnosis of sleep apnea.Gannon sued the city in 2012.A Superior Court judge found that the city had articulated a legitimate nondiscriminatory reason for assigning Gannon to desk duty, specifically its concern that his loss of cognitive function and memory impairs his ability to perform essential tasks of his job, including responding in an emergency and using the needed judgment in high-pressure situatiions. Cheap Hydro Flask Ombre. Gannon is appealing the judges ruling dismissing his disability discrimination claims and is asking the Supreme Judicial Court to allow a jury to decide his case.The citys lawyers say neuropsychological tests showed Gannon, now 46, had slow responses and memory issues, and was prone to errors. They argue that he cannot perform the job of an armed police officer.It is beyond dispute that a police officer must be able to respond properly on a split second basis to real or perceived threats, attorney Nicole Taub argued in a legal brief.But Gannons lawyers say their own experts used real world police scenario testing and found that he could fully perform the duties of his job.Here, the City has never tested Gannon in any shoot/dont shoot scenarios or simulated exercises that would gauge his ability to think quickly, react under pressure, and adapt to changing conditions. By contrast, whenever Gannon has undergone such testing on his own initiative, he has performed well, his lawyers argued in their brief.Gannon declined to comment. Attorney Adelaide Pagano told The Associated Press that Gannon has shown he is more than capable of performing the essential functions of the job of a police officer safely. She called the departments decision to keep him on desk duty obstinate and disgraceful.In a recent interview with MixedMartialArts.com, Gannon said he believes the department has retained a battery of medical experts to try to show he cant do his job, but he has numerous experts who say he can.If one doctor says youll never run again, and another doctor says you will, and then you run in five touchdowns in the pre-season, and another three in real games, its safe to say the doctor that said you would never run again is wrong, he said.
