The Reds did their damage on nine hits and six free passes with Eugenio Suarez and Joey Votto each clubbing two run bombswhile Alex Blandino went 2-4 with an RBI and a pair of runs.
Cincinnati sends right hander Sal Romano to the hill to face San Francisco on Monday. Romano did not receive a decision in a 2-1 win versus the NY Mets with a run scoring on four hits through six frames.
The San Francisco Giants have struggle this past week but are hoping a series ending 5-0 victory at Pittsburgh on Sunday s the beginning of a long hot streak. Giants starter Derek Holland allowed four hits and walked five while whiffing seven over 6.1 innings to get the win.
San Francisco amassed 13 hits and a base on balls with Nick Hundley striking the big blow with a three run homer. The Giants saw Gorkys Hernandez smack a solo homer while Brandon Crawford had three hit with an RBI and run.
San Francisco has named Chris Stratton as Monday’s starter against visiting Cincinnati. Stratton comes in off of an 11-3 defeat at Philadelphia here he allowed five runs on five hits and four BB over 4.2 innings.
Cincinnati is playing their best baseball and I know the hot streak won’t last but I’d much rather back the plus odds on the Reds…
