The San Diego Padres and the Cincinnati Reds will match up on the MLB diamond to continue their series on Tuesday.
In the Monday opener, the Padres sprinkled in a few runs across the game and were able to eke out a 3-2 win.
For Tuesday’s game, the Padres will send out Cal Quantrill for the start. Over 75.1 innings and a 6-3 record this year, Quantrill has a 3.23 ERA with 61 Ks and 19 BBs.
The Padres managed just five hits on Monday, but that’s all they needed. Greg Garcia led the team with two hits and also had two runs.
Over on the Reds’ side, they’re going with Sonny Gray on Tuesday. Across his 132.2 innings and 8-6 record this year, Gray has a 2.98 ERA with 154 Ks and 50 BBs.
Cincinnati’s eight hits on Monday created just two runs. Galvis, Barnhart and Peraza each had two knocks apiece.
The Padres are 1-5 in their last six Tuesday games and 4-0 in Quantrill’s last four starts in game two of a series. San Diego is 1-7 in their last eight versus a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15 and the under is 4-1 in their last five in game two of a series.
Meanwhile, the Reds are 6-0 in Gray’s last six home starts and 13-3 in his last 16 starts. Cincinnati is 4-1 in Gray’s last five starts on grass and 4-1 in his last five with four days’ rest.
Quantrill is 4-1 over his last five starts. During that time he’s put up just five earned runs and allowed only two homers. The Padres have been giving Quantrill some solid run support in that stretch as well.
As for Gray, he’s rolling right along as well with a 3-0 record in his last four starts, and zero earned in his last three. This should be a pretty fun pitching matchup and a close game. I’m leaning Padres since they’ve been playing a little better lately and the line is inviting.
