Sunday Night Baseball: Dodgers at Reds
By Steve Merril
Covers.com

Two of the better teams in the National League go at it on Sunday Night as the Reds host the Dodgers.

CY KERSHAW

Clayton Kershaw is 14-8 with a 1.89 ERA and 0.92 WHIP for the Dodgers this season. The lefty got rocked his last time out in Colorado giving up 5 runs and 11 hits in five innings. He had previously allowed five earned runs total over his previous seven starts. Kershaw faced the Reds back on July 26th and gave up just 1 run and six hits in eight innings. In that game, he struck out eight batters while walking none. The Dodgers’ pitcher has not allowed a home run in his last eight starts; he gave up two to the Nationals on July 21st.

HOMER HANGING TOUGH

Homer Bailey is 10-10 with a 3.42 ERA and 1.11 WHIP for the Reds. Bailey dominated the Cardinals in his last two starts giving up just seven hits and three walks over 14 1/3 innings of work. The righty is an incredibly streaky pitcher, and he wavers between good and bad. The righty allowed 12 runs and 26 hits over a four start span from late June into July. He also threw a no-hitter against the Giants during that stretch. Bailey was on the opposite end of Kershaw in that July 26th game in Los Angeles. He allowed 2 runs and seven hits in seven innings. The righty has not been economical with his pitches throwing over 100 in five straight starts and in 13 of his last 14 starts overall.

INJURY REPORT

These are two of the more healthy teams in baseball. Cincinnati’s pitching staff could use Johnny Cueto who is dealing with a strained right lat muscle.  Jonathan Broxton, Sean Marshall, and Nick Masset are all out from the bullpen. None of those three will be back this season.

The Dodgers are without Josh Beckett and Chad Billingsley who are each done for the season themselves. Matt Kemp was supposed to be back soon, but he experienced a setback and he’s out indefinitely with a hamstring injury.

TRENDS

Dodgers are 24-8 in Kershaw’s last 32 Sunday starts
Dodgers are 8-3 Under in their last 11 Sunday games

Reds are 2-5 in Bailey’s last 7 Sunday starts
Reds are 22-8-2 Under in their last 32 games vs. a left-handed starter

HITTERS TO WATCH

Joey Votto 5-for-20 vs. Kershaw
Ryan Ludwick 2-for-14 vs. Kershaw

Andre Ethier 0-for-15 vs. Bailey
Adrian Gonzalez 9-for-18 vs. Bailey
