The Cincinnati Reds continue their series with the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park.
The plan for the Cincinnati Reds is to give some new faces a good look for next year and win games in the final weeks of the year. The Reds had lost three of four before knocking off the Brewers 5-3 on Friday night. Starter Brandon Finnegan picked up his first career win with a run scored on a solo homer over five frames while six relievers finished the job. The offense had plenty of runners on a nine hit, eight walk attack that featured homers from Jason Bourgeois and Jay Bruce with Eugenio Suarez scoring twice. Cincinnati is slate to give the ball to rookie Joshua Smith for his 4th start of the season. Smith is still looking for his first win and is 0-2 with a 1.98 WHIP and 7.36 ERA in 14.2 innings.

The Milwaukee Brewers might be spoilers but they certainly aren’t good at it. The Brewers lost again and might have thrown in the towel with their 10th defeat in 12 contests. Starter Zach Davies threw the ball well enough to win with three runs given up on five hits and four bases on balls through six innings while Tyler Thornburg allowed two more. The Brew Crew managed seven hits and walked five times with Khris Davis going solo while Jason Rogers went deep and drove in two.Milwaukee gives Taylor Jungmann the start in game two of their series against Cincinnati. Jungmann has been one of the Brewers best options on the hill with a 9-6 record with a 3.05 ERA.
The over is 8-1-1 in Chicago’s last 10 Saturday games and is 8-2 in their last 10 road games while going 35-15-1 in their last 51 overall. The over is 21-4-2 in Milwaukee’s last 27 overall and is 21-4-2 in their last 27 on grass while the under is 6-2 in Jungmann’s last 8 home starts. Cincinnati are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings. Milwaukee has the pitching edge on paper but I can’t stomach betting on such a bad team…
