Reds' Romano works six strong innings in victory
Sal Romano allowed two runs -- one earned -- over six innings Monday in a win over the Braves. The only earned run he gave up came on a Nick Markakis solo homer in the top of the fourth inning. Romano yielded only three other hits and one walk while striking out five. The 24-year-old right-hander will bring a 1-2 record, 4.78 ERA, and 1.41 WHIP into his next start on the road versus the Twins
Twins' Odorizzi allows five earned runs in loss to Yankees
Jake Odorizzi surrendered five earned runs over 4 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Yankees. Odorizzi struggled right out of the gate in this one, yielding three runs in the bottom of the first inning and one run in the bottom of the second. He issued three walks and gave up five hits, including two home runs. The 28-year-old right-hander will carry a 1-2 record, 4.50 ERA, and 1.42 WHIP into his next start at home against the Reds -- a team that doesn't have quite the firepower of the Bronx Bombers.
MLB Betting Trends
The Reds are 3-15 in their last 18 interleague road games when facing a team with a losing record and are 12-42 in their last 54 interleague road games regardless of the opponent.
Despite losing last night, the Twins are 8-1 in their last nine interleague home games and 11-2 in their last 13 interleague games overall.
Let's see, Odorizzi issues with the long ball and the Reds just scored 15 runs at Target Field last night. Oh, and Romano's strikeout rate is down, his walk rate is up and he owns a 1.71 HR/9 ratio at the moment. Not a good sign for either pitcher. I'll take the over.
The Pick: Reds/Twins over 9.5
