Cincinnati Reds -150 / Miami Marlins +130 O/U: 8.5
The Miami Marlins and the Cincinnati Reds will meet up on the MLB diamond Wednesday to continue their set.
In the Tuesday opener of this matchup, Cincinnati ripped seven runs in the sixth inning and rolled to a huge 14-0 shutout victory.
the Marlins will be sending out RHP Trevor Richards on Wednesday. Across his two games and 0-1 mark this year, Richards has a 3.00 ERA with 11 Ks and a 1.17 WHIP to his name.
In the big Tuesday loss, the Marlins could only come up with four hits on the night. Two of those hits belonged to Lewis Brinson, who finished 2-for-3.
Over on the Reds’ side, they’re going with Tyler Mahle in the Wednesday game. Mahle only has one start to his name so far this season, with 6.0 innings, five hits and zero earned with five strikeouts versus the Pirates.
On Tuesday in the victory, Cincinnati’s Jesse Winkler put up a two-run homer and finished with two runs and three RBI. Matt Kemp and Kyle Farmer each hit three-run homers for the Reds in that one as well.
The Marlins are 1-4 in their last five Wednesday games and 2-9 in their last 11 in game two of a series. Miami is 1-4 in Richards’ last five Wednesday starts and 0-6 in his last six road starts.
Meanwhile, the Reds are 1-5 in their last six in game two of a series and 1-11 in their last 12 Wednesday games. Cincinnati is 0-6 in Mahle’s last six starts and 5-1 in his last six with five days’ rest.
Richards’ first start this year versus the Rockies went pretty well, with one earned on four hits in 6.0 innings. The second start versus the Mets was a little less so, with five hits, three earned and three walks in 6.0 innings.
As for Mahle, he was pretty sketchy in 2018 with a 4.98 ERA and a 7-9 record, but should get some more run support this season with the revamped Cincy offense. Still, I like Richards to control this game and help get Miami a win.
