Reds' Romano coming off solid start vs. Mets

Sal Romano worked six innings of one-run ball Wednesday in the Reds' extra-innings defeat of the Mets. Romano scattered four hits and a walk while striking out seven in the no-decision. He's shown better control lately and now has a 3.83 ERA in 42 1/3 innings this year, despite an underwhelming 26/17 K/BB ratio. Up next is a road start against the Giants.

Giants' Stratton struggles vs. Phils in last start

Chris Stratton surrendered five earned runs in 4 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday. Stratton was a on a roll for the season's first month but has fallen on hard times of late. This was his third bad start in a row.

He only gave up five hits in this one (including a solo bomb by Maikel Franco) but he issued four walks and burned 96 pitches without making it through five innings. He did punch out seven batters to provide some fantasy value on the night. He falls to 3-3 with a 4.60 ERA on the season.
