The Cincinnati Reds look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Reds have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 11 games. The Reds have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring more than three runs. Todd Frazier leads Cincinnati with 63 hits and 37 RBI while Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips have combined for 60 RBI. The Cincinnati Reds have won six of their last eight home games. Jon Moscot takes the hill, and he’s 0-1 with a 7.20 ERA and three strikeouts this season. This will be Moscot’s first career game against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 0-4 in Williams' last 4 starts. The Reds are 7-2 in their last 9 vs. National League East and 4-12 in their last 16 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Phillies are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in Cincinnati.
The Reds offense has woken up in a big way over the last week or so, and the Phillies have lost six straight games on the road. No reason to stop now. I like the home team and the reasonable price.
