The Cincinnati Reds look to snap a nine-game losing streak. The Reds have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last six games. The Reds have lost 11 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips have combined for 92 hits and 39 RBI while Todd Frazier has 26 RBI. The Cincinnati Reds have lost four straight home games. Michael Lorenzen takes the hill, and he’s 1-1 with a 3.79 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. This will be Lorenzen’s first career game against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 1-10 in their last 11 during game 2 of a series and 2-8 in De La Rosas last 10 road starts. The Reds are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in their last 4 vs. a team with a losing record. The over is 9-2-1 in the last 12 meetings.
The Reds are going to snap this brutal losing streak eventually, but I'm not putting money on them until they actually look like a MLB team. The Rockies have to be the pick here.
