Cincinnati Reds -120 / Milwaukee Brewers +110 O/U: 10.5
The Milwaukee Brewers and the Cincinnati Reds will meet up on the MLB diamond Wednesday to continue their series.
In the Monday opener of this set, the Brewers banged out an 8-6 win. On Tuesday, we had a marathon 11-inning game before the Reds stormed back from three runs down to eke out a 5-4 victory.
For Wednesday’s game, the Brewers will be sending out Jhoulys Chacin in the start. Over his 72.1 innings and 3-8 mark this year, Chacin has a 5.60 ERA with 60 Ks and 35 BBs.
The Brewers managed six hits in the Tuesday game and had it going toward the sixth inning or so. Mike Moustakas was the only player with more than one RBI on his two-run homer.
Over on the Reds’ side, they’re going with Sonny Gray on Wednesday. In his 82.1 innings and 4-5 mark so far, Gray has a 3.94 ERA with 91 Ks and 32 BBs.
Cincinnati ripped 10 hits as a team in their comeback win Tuesday. Lots of players contributed, and Yasiel Puig would finish with two hits, a solo homer and two runs.
The Brewers are 28-10 in their last 38 in game three of a series and 2-5 in Chacin’s last seven starts in game three of a series. Milwaukee is 1-6 in Chacin’s last seven starts and 0-7 in his last seven road starts.
Meanwhile, the Reds are 4-1 in their last five in game three of a series and 5-16 in their last 21 Wednesday games. Cincinnati is 4-0 in Gray’s last four starts and 4-1 in his last five home starts.
Chacin stumbled a bit the last time he faced Cincinnati (two starts ago on June 22) with five earned on six hits in 4.2 innings. He was better against the Pirates (one earned in 5.0 innings) but hasn’t recorded a win since April 30.
As for Gray, he’s been pretty decent lately and is 2-0 in his last three starts as Cincinnati plays well behind him. I’m not super-pumped about the pick but I have to lean Reds here.
