The Cincinnati Reds and the Miami Marlins will meet up on the MLB diamond to finish up their series on Thursday.
The Reds took victories in the first two games of this set, winning 6-3 on Monday and 8-5 on Tuesday. In the Wednesday game, Cincinnati took a shutout win 5-0.
For Thursday’s matchup, the Reds will send out Alex Wood in the start. Across his 29.2 innings and 1-3 mark so far, Wood has a 6.07 ERA with 22 Ks and seven walks.
Cincinnati logged seven hits in the Wednesday game and scored three runs in the first inning, never looking back. Aquino And Suarez each had two hits, combining for four RBI and four runs.
Over on the Marlins’ side, they’re going with Robert Dugger in the start Thursday. Dugger is 0-1 with a 10.80 ERA and three Ks this year.
Miami could only muster four hits in the Wednesday loss, and no hitter had more than one knock.
The Reds are 3-12 in their last 15 in game four of a series and 0-4 in Wood’s last four starts. Cincinnati is 0-4 in Wood’s last four on grass and the under is 19-7 in their last 26 Thursday games.
Meanwhile, the Marlins are 9-20 in their last 29 in game four of a series and 13-40 in their last 53 Thursday games. 17-39 in their last 56 overall as well.
Wood has been a little sketchy over his last three starts. In that frame, he’s given up 11 earnest over 15.1 innings on 16 hits and has three straight losses.
As for Dugger, this will be something of a scramble start for the Marlins, as Jordan Yamamoto—who was originally set to pitch here—is now on the IL with a forearm strain.
There’s not a whole lot to like here but I’m leaning Reds.
