The Line: Milwaukee Brewers -116 / Cincinnati Reds -105 -- Over/Under: 10.5
The Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds meet Tuesday in MLB action at Great American Ball Park.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for another win after winning six of their last nine games. The Brewers have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Milwaukee Brewers have won five of their last six games when scoring at least three runs. Christian Yelich leads the Brewers with 96 hits and 66 RBI while Mike Moustakas and Lorenzo Cain have combined for 159 hits and 77 RBI. Chase Anderson gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 4.42 ERA and 61 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 5-3 with a 3.86 ERA and 55 strikeouts in his career against the Reds.
The Cincinnati Reds need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Reds have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Cincinnati Reds have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Eugenio Suarez leads the Reds with 77 hits and 52 RBI while Jose Iglesias and Joey Votto have combined for 150 hits and 53 RBI. Tanner Roark gets the ball, and he is 5-6 with a 3.36 ERA and 87 strikeouts this season. Roark is 5-2 with a 2.82 ERA and 59 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 0-6 in their last 6 Tuesday games and 4-1 in Andersons last 5 road starts. The Reds are 8-3 in their last 11 vs. a team with a winning record, 0-4 in Roarks last 4 home starts and 1-4 in Roarks last 5 starts. The Brewers are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Cincinnati and 10-4 in the last 14 meetings. The under is 5-0 in Roarks last 5 starts overall. The over is 5-2-1 in Andersons last 8 road starts.
Anderson has allowed 24 hits and 16 earned runs in his last 24.1 innings, and he has a 4.22 ERA and .279 allowed batting average on the road. Against current Reds hitters, Anderson is allowing a .229 batting average with 29 strikeouts in 118 at bats. Roark has allowed seven hits and two runs in his last 11.1 innings and has a 3.65 ERA at home. The Reds need to start winning games if they're going to be taken seriously as a playoff contender, but I don't have much confidence in them at the moment, especially with the offense going dead quiet at times. Anderson hasn't been good at all lately, but the Brewers are the better and more trustworthy team.
