Colorado Rockies vs Cincinnati Reds Prediction 

Runs are going to be hard to come by in this game. Gomber gave up only one run in his last start, and the Reds bats are going to be ice-cold here. Greene is going to follow up his start in the last game of seven innings of shutout ball with another strong start. The Rockies and Reds are both going to struggle to get the offense going here, and this game is going to end up staying under the total.
