Reds' Mahle outduels Fulmer for sixth win of season

Tyler Mahle limited the Tigers to five hits and two runs over six strong innings Wednesday in the Reds’ 5-3 victory. Not a bad day at the office for Mahle, who finished with eight strikeouts and four walks over 101 pitches. He allowed a pair of homers—both solo shots—to Jeimer Candelario in the first inning and Niko Goodrum in the fourth, but otherwise kept Detroit in check. The 23-year-old will take a five-start unbeaten streak into his next outing Monday against the Braves. He yielded three runs over six innings in a no-decision when he faced Atlanta earlier this year.

Braves' Foltynewicz set to return to rotation on Monday

Mike Foltynewicz (triceps) is now lined up to return from the disabled list Monday. Foltynewicz felt good during a bullpen session on Friday, but the Braves want to give Sunday's start against the Orioles to Brandon McCarthy, with Folty handling Monday's series opener versus the Reds. The 26-year-old right-hander had a sharp 2.16 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 94/33 K/BB ratio through 79 innings this season with Atlanta when he landed on the disabled list June 16, retroactive to June 13, with right triceps tightness.

MLB Betting Trends

Cincinnati

The Reds have won seven in a row and five straight against a right-handed starter.

Atlanta

The Braves have won nine of their last 11 home games versus a right-handed starter and are 4-1 in their last five games versus National League Central opponents.

Prediction:

Why not keep riding the Reds until the cool off? They're 5-0 in Mahle's last five starts and are 5-1 in his last six road outings. The BRaves, meanwhile, are just 3-7 in Foltynewicz's last 10 home starts, are 6-15 in his last 21 outings overall, and are 0-4 in his last four starts versus the National League Central.

 The Pick: Cincinnati Reds +135
