Reds falter at home
Cincinnati allowed five runs in the top of the seventh inning Monday night at home in an 8-6 loss versus Milwaukee. David Hernandez took the loss in relief as he gave up three earned runs on three hits with no strikeouts and two walks over one inning of work. Eugenio Suarez led the Reds offense as he went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBIs. Jesse Winker finished 2-for-3 with a solo home run. Joey Votto went 1-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored.

MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are 0-6 in their last six Tuesday games. Milwaukee is 2-5 in its last seven road games.
The Reds are 6-2 in their last eight home games. Cincinnati is 1-4 in the last five Roark starts.
Milwaukee found its offense last night and a way to win on the road, where it has struggled lately. But I think they go back to struggling some against Roark today as he's pitched well as of late, while the Brewers also used their top relievers yesterday so if Cincinnati can chase Anderson within the first six innings it should be in good shape. Taking the hosts tonight.
