The Cincinnati Reds and Seattle Mariners meet Wednesday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Cincinnati Reds need a win after losing eight of their last 12 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 nine straight games when scoring three or less runs. Eugenio Suarez leads the Reds with 139 hits and 95 RBI while Jose Iglesias and Joey Votto have combined for 259 hits and 96 RBI. Sonny Gray gets the ball, and he is 10-6 with a 2.75 ERA and 181 strikeouts this season. Gray is 5-2 with a 2.71 ERA and 69 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners need a win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Mariners have scored six runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Seattle Mariners have won eight of their last 13 games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 113 hits and 69 RBI while Mallex Smith and Omar Narvaez have combined for 216 hits and 84 RBI. Marco Gonzales gets the ball, and he is 14-11 with a 4.37 ERA and 128 strikeouts this season. Gonzales is 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA and two strikeouts in his career against the Reds.
The Reds are 4-1 in their last 5 Wednesday games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 16-5 in Gray's last 21 starts. The Mariners are 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games, 5-1 in Gonzales' last 6 home starts and 2-5 in Gonzales' last 7 starts. The Reds are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Seattle and 1-10 in the last 11 meetings. The under is 5-2-1 in Gonzales' last 8 starts overall. The under is 4-1 in Gray's last 5 starts overall.
Gray has allowed 22 hits and four earned runs in his last 42.2 innings, and he has a 2.58 ERA and .189 allowed batting average on the road. Gonzales has allowed 48 hits and 22 earned runs in his last 40.1 innings, and he has a 4.32 ERA and .267 allowed batting average at home. Gray has been one of the best pitchers in baseball these last couple of months, and the Reds are 9-3 with him on the mound since July. While Gray isn't getting any younger as he approaches 30 years old, this is the pitcher we were all hoping to see when he was coming up through the Oakland A's. He's been absolutely incredible these last three months. I have to side with the Reds and the reasonable price.
