The Cincinnati Reds and the Pittsburgh Pirates will meet up on the MLB diamond Friday.

The Reds are coming off a series versus the Brewers. Cincinnati lost the first two games of that series 4-2 and 9-2, then on Thursday the Reds lost 5-3.

For Friday’s game, the Reds will send out Anthony DeSclafani in the start. Across 161.2 innings and a 9-9 record this year DeSclafani has a 3.84 ERA with 162 Ks and 48 BBs.

Over on the Pirates’ side, they just finished against the Cubs. Pittsburgh won the first two games of that series 9-2 and 4-2, then on Thursday the Pirates won 9-5.

For Friday’s game, the Pirates will go with Steven Brault to start. Over 108.1 innings and a 4-6 mark so far, Brault has a 5.07 ERA with 90 Ks an 49 BBs.

The Reds are 1-7 in their last eight in game one of a series and 7-3 in DeSclafani’s last 10 Friday starts. Cincinnati is 1-6 in DeSclafani’s last seven road starts and 0-5 in his last five in game one of a series.

Meanwhile, the Pirates are 2-5 in Brault’s last seven Friday starts and 2-9 in his last 11 starts. Pitt is 0-5 in Brault’s last five home starts and 0-9 in his last nine versus the NL Central.

DeSclafani has been solid over his last three, with a trio of quality starts totaling four earned in 19.0 innings on just seven hits. Thing is, he’s 0-1 in that span and doesn’t have a victory since August 28.

As for Brault, he’s 0-3 in his last four games with 19 earned in that stretch. I don’t really like this one, but it’s a good opportunity for the Reds to get a victory.
