Riley Greene has hit 16 home runs and driven in 43 RBIs. The Tigers will take on the Guardians following this series.

Reds Look to Bounce Back

The Reds scored two runs in the bottom of the 9th, but it wasn’t enough as they lost by a run. Carson Spiers wasn’t very good going 4.2 innings, giving up eight hits and four runs. Spencer Steer hit a home run and drove in two RBis. The Reds are averaging 4.29 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.06 runs per game. The offense is ranked 15th in the league, while the pitching is ranked 10th. They have a run differential of 0.24 which is 13th in the league. Getting the start for the Reds will be Hunter Greene, who sits with a 5-4 record and an ERA of 3.70. In his last start against the St. Louis Cardinals, he went 4.2 innings, giving up four hits and one run.

Why the Reds Will Beat the Tigers

  • The Tigers have lost each of their last six day games following a road win.
  • The Reds have won four of their last five games at Great American Ball Park against American League opponents that held a losing record.
  • The Tigers have failed to cover the run line in 12 of their last 13 games following a win.
  • The Reds have covered the run line in four of their last five home games against American League opponents that held a losing record.

Detroit Tigers vs Cincinnati Reds Prediction

The Tigers have struggled this season, and they are going to continue those struggles here. Hunter Greene has been strong this season and in his last start he gave up only one run. Although he didn’t go as deep in that game, he’s going to be deeper here, and that will be the difference here as the Reds are going to end up getting the job done. Back the Reds on the money line to cash.
