The Arizona Diamondbacks look for a win after losing six of their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have allowed 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 12 of their last 15 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have an ERA of 5.12 and have lost nine of their last 13 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Jean Segura leads Arizona with 162 hits, Paul Goldschmidt has 78 RBI and Jake Lamb has 25 home runs. Archie Bradley takes the hill, and he’s 4-8 with a 5.06 ERA and 101 strikeouts this season. This will be Bradley’s second career game against the Reds.
The Reds are 14-37 in their last 51 Sunday games and 4-9 in Baileys last 13 starts. The Diamondbacks are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Bradleys last 5 starts. The Reds are 18-8 in the last 26 meetings in Arizona.
I've been doing nothing but fading the Diamondbacks, and it continues to pay off as their rotation gets blasted nightly. Cincy and the even money is a good bet once again.
