Cincinnati Reds vs. Philadelphia Phillies - 7/28/18 MLB Pick, Odds, and Prediction

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

The Phillies logged seven hits and three free passes with Odubel Herrera slugging a two run homer while Rhys Hoskins went 2-5 and knocked in a run and scored.

The Phillies have named Vince Velasquez as Saturday’s starter at Cincinnati who he opposes for the first time. Velasquez has not allowed a run in consecutive outings covering 13 innings of work.

The Cincinnati Reds evened their series with visiting Philadelphia 1-1 thanks to their bats and bullpen. Cincinnati starter Anthony DeSclafini allowed three runs over 4.1 innings before four relievers gave up a run through 4.2 frames.

The Reds attack consisted of seven hits and seven free passes with Mason Williams clubbing a three run homer while Eugenio Suarez connected on his 24th long ball.

Cincinnati gives veteran right hander Matt Harvey the starting assignment against Philadelphia. Harvey comes off of a 9-2 loss to the Pirates with eight runs plated on four homers over 3.2 frames.

Under is 7-3-1 in Philadelphia last 11 road games and Philadelphia are 3-7 in Velasquez’s last 10 starts and Philadelphia are 3-7 in Velasquez’s last 10 starts on grass. Over is 21-6-2 in Cincinnati last 29 overall and over is 21-6-2 in Cincinnati last 29 on grass and Cincinnati are 2-6 in their last 8 overall.

I’m always leery of Velasquez who has good stuff but can be tantalizingly inconsistent. I hope he can tantalize the Cincinnati offense tho…
