The Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants meet Friday in MLB action at AT&T Park.
The Cincinnati Reds could use a win after losing eight of their last 13 games. The Reds have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last 10 games. The Cincinnati Reds have lost six of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Jose Iglesias leads the Reds with 32 hits and 11 RBI while Eugenio Suarez and Jesse Winker have combined for 59 hits and 39 RBI. Luis Castillo gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 1.97 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. Castillo is 1-0 with a 3.29 ERA and 18 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Giants have scored 29 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The San Francisco Giants have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 35 hits and 18 RBI while Brandon Crawford and Evan Longoria have combined for 54 hits and 21 RBI. Dereck Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 5.75 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. This will be Rodriguez’s second career game against the Reds.
The Reds are 2-5 in their last 7 Friday games, 15-39 in their last 54 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 games following a win. The Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series, 7-19 in their last 26 vs. National League Central and 3-11 in Rodriguezs last 14 starts. The Reds are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in San Francisco and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The under is 23-10-3 in Giants last 36 home games. The under is 11-2 in Castillos last 13 starts overall.
Both teams have had issues scoring runs all season, but the offenses have picked up at times and has shown flashes of turning things around, especially the Giants, who caught fire in Colorado. Castillo just pitched against the Giants and allowed four runs in seven innings, the most he's allowed all season. Rodriguez just got tagged for eight runs in five innings against the Reds while walking four batters. Throw in the fact these lineups will see the same pitcher for the second time in a week, and you have a recipe for even more fireworks. I like the over in this contest.
