The Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds meet Wednesday in MLB action at Great American Ball Park. The Brewers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 11 games. The Reds look for a win after winning six of their last eight games.
The Milwaukee Brewers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Brewers have won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. Avisail Garcia leads the Brewers with 46 hits and 34 RBI while Kolten Wong and Omar Narvaez have combined for 86 hits and 32 RBI. Brett Anderson gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 4.42 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 4-2 with a 4.25 ERA and 23 strikeouts in his career against the Reds.
The Cincinnati Reds have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Reds have won six straight games when scoring four or more runs. Nick Castellanos leads the Reds with 76 hits and 31 RBI while Jesse Winker and Tyler Naquin have combined for 115 hits and 28 RBI. Vladimir Gutierrez gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 2.70 ERA and six strikeouts this season. This will be Gutierrez’s first career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 5-0 in their last 5 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games. The Reds are 2-5 in their last 7 Wednesday games and 2-7 in their last 9 home games. The under is 24-11 in Brewers last 35 road games. The over is 5-1 in Reds last 6 home games. The under is 11-5-1 in the last 17 meetings in Cincinnati.
Brett Anderson has had his struggles at times this season, but we’re getting even money with possibly the hottest team in baseball. The Reds are playing good ball in their own right. But the Brewers are hotter and they’ve won four of the last six games against the Reds. I’m not stepping in front of the Brewers, especially at these favorable prices.
