The Cincinnati Reds need a win after losing four of their last six games. The Reds have scored six runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Reds have won six straight games when scoring more than three runs. Todd Frazier leads Cincinnati with 72 hits and 41 RBI while Joey Votto and Jay Bruce have combined for 66 RBI. The Cincinnati Reds have won four straight home games. Johnny Cueto takes the hill, and he’s 4-4 with a 2.85 ERA and 82 strikeouts this season. This will be Cueto’s first career game against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 13-6 in their last 19 during game 3 of a series and 13-3 in Prices last 16 starts. The Reds are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 23-10 in Cuetos last 33 starts. The Tigers are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
This is going to be a hell of a pitching matchup, as Cueto and Price are two of the best in the game. Because of that, I'm going with the plus money in this toss up. Detroit seems like the wise pick to me.
