Brewers shut out on four hits
Milwaukee could not get its offense going Wednesday night as it fell 3-0 at Cincinnati. Ben Gamel and Tyler Saladino were both 1-for-3 to pace the offense. Lorenzo Cain and Eric Thames ended the game 1-for-4. Jhoulys Chacin took the loss as he gave up two earned runs on seven hits over six innings, striking out eight and walking none. Brandon Woodruff gets the start today as he enters with a 10-2 record, 3.79 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 120 strikeouts over 102 innings.
Gray strikes out 12 in shutout
Sonny Gray was spectacular Wednesday night in a 3-0 home victory over Milwaukee. Gray gave up four hits with 12 strikeouts and one walk over eight shutout innings to earn the victory. Raisel Iglesias struck out one in a perfect inning to notch the save. Yasiel Puig led the Reds offense as he finished 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBIs. Jose Iglesias went 2-for-4 with an RBI. Joey Votto was 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. Luis Castillo will start today for Cincinnati as he comes in with a 7-3 record, 2.47 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 115 strikeouts over 98 1/3 innings pitched.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are 1-5 in their last six road games. Milwaukee is 5-1 in the last six Woodruff road starts.
The Reds are 6-2 in their last eight Thursday games. Cincinnati is 11-4 in its last 15 home games versus a team with a winning record.
Gray put the Reds on his back last night and now Cincinnati is only 4.5 games out of first place even though it is technically in last place. But with Christian Yelich likely back in the lineup today and the Brewers having pounded Castillo recently, I like Milwaukee today behind Woodruff. Although Woodruff has been better at home, his stuff plays in any park. Going with Milwaukee today.
