The Cincinnati Reds have lost their last four games as they head to Milwaukee and hope to regroup. The Reds are 1-5 on the road so far this season ad they are in fourth place in the National League Central. As a team the Reds are hitting .218 with Joey Votto hitting .364, Zack Cozart hitting .333, and Brandon Phillips hitting .304. The Reds pitching staff has an ERA of 3.90 with the starters at 3.70 and the bullpen at 4.36. For game one against the Brewers the Reds start Anthony DeScalfani who has allowed seven hits and two runs while striking out 11 over 13 innings for a 1-0 record and 1.38 ERA.
Milwaukee is 16-35 in their last 51 games, 1-5 against a right-handed starter, and 10-4 in Peralta’s last 14 starts as a favorite. Cincinnati is 19-41 as a road underdog, 1-5 following a loss, and 0-4 as an underdog. Cincinnati is 1-5 in their last six games in Milwaukee.
I am not sure how the Brewers are favored over anyone at this point so my play is the Reds.
