The Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Tuesday night for game two of their series.
The Cincinnati Reds could use a win in order to snap an eight-game losing streak. The Reds have scored four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Cincinnati Reds offense has been quiet during this stretch, and they’ve lost seven straight games when scoring three or less runs. Zack Cozart leads Cincinnati with 44 hits, Eugenio Suarez has 26 RBI and Jay Bruce has eight home runs. Daniel Wright will make his major league debut when he gets the ball here.

The Los Angeles Dodgers could also use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Dodgers have allowed eight runs in their last three games and five or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have an ERA of 3.68 and have lost six of their last eight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Corey Seager leads Los Angeles with 48 hits, Adrian Gonzalez has 21 RBI and Yasiel Puig has five home runs. Mike Bolsinger takes the hill, and he’s 0-1 with a 6.23 ERA and two strikeouts this season. This will be Bolsinger’s first career game against the Reds.
The Reds are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 16-38 in their last 54 road games. The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 11-4 in their last 15 vs. National League Central. The Reds are 9-23 in the last 32 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Red have won just three road games all season. Three. I also don't back teams that are starting a guy making his major league debut. Yeah, give me the Dodgers at home.
