Avisail Garcia leads the Brewers with 34 hits and 22 RBI while Omar Narvaez and Kolten Wong have combined for 64 hits and 19 RBI. Freddy Peralta gets the ball, and he is 4-1 with a 2.40 ERA and 69 strikeouts this season. Peralta is 2-1 with a 3.58 ERA and 40 strikeouts in his career against the Reds.

The Reds have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Nick Castellanos leads the Reds with 53 hits and 27 RBI while Jesse Winker and Tyler Naquin have combined for 84 hits and 56 RBI.

The Brewers are 2-8 in their last 10 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 overall. The Reds are 3-7 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The under is 21-9 in Brewers last 30 road games. The over is 9-3-1 in Reds last 13 overall. The Brewers are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings.
The Milwaukee Brewers are a tough sell in their current form with an offense that’s not showing much promise right now. However, the Cincinnati Reds aren’t lighting the world on fire in their own right and have Luis Castillo on the mound, and he’s been downright awful this season to say the least. In his last four starts, Castillo has allowed 18 earned runs through 18 innings. No, thanks. Give me the Brewers and the cheap price.
