Reds look to stablize rotation vs. Nationals

WASHINGTON -- The Cincinnati Reds' bullpen has the fourth-best best ERA in the National League and the offense boasts five players with at least 10 home runs, and three with at least 16.

So by process of elimination that leaves starting pitching as the main culprit for a recent slide that has included 13 losses in 14 games, including an 18-3 bruising on Saturday to the Washington Nationals.

As the Reds try to rebound from their second-most lopsided loss of the season on Sunday, manager Bryan Price feels help is on the way and may have already arrived.
