The Cincinnati Reds need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Reds have allowed 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Reds have lost five of their last seven games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Brandon Phillips leads Cincy with 37 hits and 15 RBI while Joey Votto and Todd Frazier have combined for 39 RBI. The Cincinnati Reds have lost five of their last seven games on their home fied. Anthony DeSclafani gets the ball, and he’s 2-3 with a 2.50 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. This will be DeSclafani’s second career game against the Braves.

The Braves are 3-7 in their last 10 vs. National League Central and 0-6 in their last 6 games as a road underdog. The Reds are 5-0 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 2-5 in their last 7 home games. The Braves are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings in Cincinnati. 

Both teams are playing inconsistent ball. With two young pitchers on the mound, I'm siding with the team that's giving me the plus money.
