Brewers blow lead, lose in 11
Milwaukee allowed a run in the seventh and eighth innings Tuesday night before falling by a 5-4 score in 11 innings at Cincinnati. Mike Moustakas helped lead the Brewers as he finished 1-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs. Eric Thames went 1-for-3 with a solo home run. Christian Yelich was 1-for-5 with a solo homer. Corbin Burnes took the loss in relief as he gave up one unearned run on two hits over two-thirds of an inning, striking out one and walking none. Jhoulys Chacin will take the mound tonight as he enters with a 3-8, 5.60 ERA and 1.52 WHIP with 60 strikeouts over 72 1/3 innings.
Reds win on crazy play in extra innings
Cincinnati defeated Milwaukee 5-4 in 11 innings Tuesday night as Yasiel Puig scored the game-winning run after the Brewers missed the cutoff man following a Jose Iglesias single. Eugenio Suarez helped lead the Reds as he finished the contest 1-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs. Puig went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored. Nick Senzel finished 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored. Raisel Iglesias picked up the win in relief as he threw one spotless frame. Sonny Gray draws the start tonight as he comes in with a 4-5 record, 3.94 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with 91 strikeouts over 82 1/3 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are 1-4 in their last five road games. Milwaukee is 1-6 in the last seven Chacin starts.
The Reds are 7-2 in their last nine home games. Cincinnati is 5-16 in its last 21 Wednesday games.
This feels like a good letdown spot for the Reds, especially considering the Brewers can turn to super reliever Josh Hader today after he didn't pitch yesterday. Milwaukee should get to Gray a little bit and I trust its top relievers to carry it the rest of the way. This all hinges on Chacin providing a good enough bridge, but he was decent in his last start and maybe is starting to smooth out his rough season.
