The Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Angels meet Tuesday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Cincinnati Reds look for another win after winning six of their last eight games. The Reds have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 13 games. The Cincinnati Reds have won six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Jose Iglesias leads the Reds with 70 hits and 30 RBI while Eugenio Suarez and Joey Votto have combined for 136 hits and 64 RBI. Tyler Mahle gets the ball, and he is 2-7 with a 4.17 ERA and 80 strikeouts this season. This will be Mahle’s first career game against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Angels have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Mike Trout leads the Angels with 79 hits and 56 RBI while David Fletcher and Tommy La Stella have combined for 154 hits and 72 RBI. Andrew Heaney gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 5.68 ERA and 32 strikeouts this season. This will be Heaney’s first career game against the Reds.
The Reds are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. American League West, 11-5 in their last 16 games following a loss and 4-15 in Mahle's last 19 starts. The Angels are 22-8 in their last 30 interleague home games, 8-3 in Heaney's last 11 home starts and 5-13 in Heaney's last 18 starts with 5 days of rest. The Reds are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-6 in the last 8 meetings. The over is 3-1-1 in Heaney's last 5 starts overall. The under is 10-3-1 in Mahle's last 14 starts overall.
Mahle has been great for the Reds at home, but he has a 4.80 ERA and a .280 allowed batting average on the road this season. Heaney has allowed 17 hits and 14 runs with nine walks in his last 20.1 innings. With just 25.1 innings under his belt this season overall, I need to see some promising performances from Heaney before I get behind him with confidence. This feels like an over game between two pitchers that are more than hittable.
