Roark slows down Brewers
Cincinnati cruised to a 7-1 victory Thursday night at Milwaukee to improve to 35-38 overall and 16-21 on the road. Tanner Roark picked up the win on the mound as he gave up one earned run on three hits with seven strikeouts and no walks over six innings. Jose Iglesias helped lead the Reds offense as he finished 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBIs. Nick Senzel was 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs. Yasiel Puig ended the night 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. Sonny Gray starts tonight for Cincinnati as he enters with a 3-5 record, 3.77 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 79 strikeouts over 71 2/3 innings.
Yelich homers in loss
Milwaukee struggled to get anything going Thursday night in a 7-1 home loss versus Cincinnati. Christian Yelich paced the Brewers offense as he ended the game 2-for-4 with a solo home run. Orlando Arcia finished the contest 1-for-3, while Eric Thames and Travis Shaw both went 1-for-4. Jimmy Nelson suffered the loss as he surrendered five earned runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and four walks over five innings. Chase Anderson gets the start here as he comes in with a 3-1 record, 4.05 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with 49 strikeouts over 46 2/3 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Reds are 5-1 in the last six Gray starts. Cincinnati is 4-0 in its last five games versus a right-handed starter.
The Brewers are 4-1 in their last five home games. Milwaukee is 5-1 in the last six Anderson starts versus the NL Central.
I'm going to take try and ride the Reds' hot streak for another day. Gray is the superior pitcher in this matchup and Cincinnati is better than its overall record. Milwaukee is tough to beat at home, but the Reds solved that puzzle yesterday and I think the formula is there for it to happen again tonight.
