MLB action comes to Miller Park on Wednesday where the Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers faceoff.
The Cincinnati Reds saw their opportunity at back to back wins go by the wayside in a 2-0 loss at Milwaukee on Tuesday. Cincinnati starter Sal Romano gave up both runs on four hits and a pair of BB over five frames to absorb the loss.

The Reds were limited to two hits and three bases on balls Joey Votto and Tucker Barnhart recording hits while Jesse Winker walked twice. Cincinnati will be sending Tyler Mahle to the bump on Wednesday for his first career matchup against Milwaukee. Mahle comes off of a 5-3 loss to St. Louis with all five runs allowed on nine hits over 5.1 innings.
The Milwaukee Brewers have yet to get hot and are hoping Tuesday’s victory is the start of a winning streak. Milwaukee starter Junior Guerra gave up a hit and three and three walks through 5.2 scoreless innings while striking out seven.
The Brewers did their damage on eight hits and a pair of free passes with Eric Thames accounting for the scoring with a two run homer that scored Lorenzo Cain in the 6th inning.
Right hander Zach Davies gets the ball from the Brewers for the start versus Cincinnati in their series finale’. Davies comes in off of a 6-5 loss at the Mets with five runs plated on seven hits in 4.1 frames.
Cincinnati are 5-23 in their last 28 overall and are 5-23 in their last 28 games on grass and are 24-53 in their last 77 road games. Under is 34-15-2 in MIL last 51 home games and Milwaukee are 4-9 in their last 13 Wednesday games and under is 57-27-3 in Milwaukee last 87 overall. Cincinnati are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Milwaukee and over is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings.
The Reds are a crap shoot and Milwaukee has been ordinary at best. Davies can be tough but I don’t the Brewers are worth the price right now…
