Brewers' Peralta strikes out 10 while overwhelming Royals
Freddy Peralta pitched seven scoreless innings and struck out 10 to beat the Royals on Tuesday. OK, the Brewers have to keep him around now, right? Peralta allowed just one hit and one walk in the gem. He's been truly dominant in three of his four starts to date, giving him a 3-0 record with a 1.59 ERA.
Reds' Harvey throws six strong innings vs. Braves
Matt Harvey spun 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Tuesday in the Reds’ 5-3 win over the Braves. Harvey managed just two strikeouts, but five of the six base knocks he gave up were singles and he walked just one while also hitting a batter. He did need a little help from reliever Amir Garrett in the seventh and got it when Garrett struck out a batter to strand two runners. That’s two straight quality starts for Harvey, who now holds a 4.31 ERA over his first nine outings with his new club. Harvey faces the Brewers on Sunday at home.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers have won five of their last eight road games.
The Reds have won eight of their last 10 games at home.
For all intents and purposes, this kid Peralta has been unhittable. The Reds have been swinging some hot bats of late but they've never seen Peralta and could struggle with the movement of his pitches. That said, Harvey hasn't been the gas can in Cincinnati that he was in New York and may have figured something out. The over has been profitable to the tune of 4-1-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams in Cincinnati but the under is 5-2 in Hravey's last seven starts and is 47-17-2 in the Brewers' last 66 road games versus a right-handed starter.
The Pick: Brewers/Reds under 9
