Reds' Harvey picks up second victory against Cubs
Matt Harvey allowed two runs over six innings in a win over the Cubs on Thursday. Harvey gave up five hits and a walk, with only a Javier Baez two-run double in the third inning counting against him. Also notable were his six strikeouts, his most in a single game since April 14. Harvey hasn't had much on which to hang his hat this year, even after the trade from the Mets to the Reds -- he's got a 5.66 ERA in 16 games, including 12 starts, overall -- so there's not much to make of Thursday's performance except to note it and to pay attention to how he fares his next time out. That start will come Tuesday against a tough Braves team.
Braves' Sanchez shaky in loss to Blue Jays
Anibal Sanchez scattered five hits and four runs over five innings Wednesday in the Braves’ loss to Toronto. He fanned seven but also walked four over 97 pitches. Sanchez served up a two-run homer to Kendrys Morales in the first inning, then allowed another two runs in the fourth. Wednesday marked the right-hander’s first loss since October 1 of last year. The veteran will look to get back in the win column in his next outing Tuesday against Cincinnati.
MLB Betting Trends
The Reds are 1-4 in Harvey's last five starts but are 7-1 in their last eight games overall.
The Braves are 5-1 in Sanchez's last six starts and are 11-2 in their last 13 home games when facing a right-handed starter.
I could see the Reds get as cold as they were hot over the past week. That was an impressive run that they just went on but this is not a good team overall. The Braves are 5-1 in their last six games versus National League Central opponents, are 8-3 in their last 11 home games and are 5-2 in their last seven games following a win. Their money line price isn't horribly overpriced and Harvey has been hit hard of late.
The Pick: Atlanta Braves -155
