MLB: Cincinnati Reds at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati Reds at Tampa Bay Rays

7:10 PM ET

Scott Feldman vs. Jake Odorizzi

The ace-by-default/Opening Day starter/34-year-old Scott Feldman is Cincinnati’s only hope to prevent this dreadful and depressing losing streak from reaching double digits tonight. Who woulda thunk that when the season started?

In his last outing in San Diego on Tuesday, Feldman went five innings and gave up four runs on eight hits with two walks and six strikeouts.

The Reds will face Tampa Bay’s Odorizzi, whose last outing in Toronto resulted in 4.1 IP, five hits, five runs (three earned), three walks, and four strikeouts. The Blue Jays made Odorizzi work, as his pitch count reached 99 before he was pulled from the game.

Go Reds!
