The Cincinnati Reds face off against the San Diego Padres looking to ensure a split of this series. The Reds, backed by a solid outing by Tanner Roark and 3 dingers from the offense, ended their 4-game losing streak with a 4-1 win last night. The Reds will send Anthony DeSclafani to the mound, as he looks to right the ship. He has a 7.43 ERA on the season and has given up a combined 10 earned runs over his last 2 starts. Here’s hoping that a pitcher’s ballpark will help turn his fortunes.
The Padres will counter with Matt Strahm, who is making his 4th start of the season. He is coming off a solid outing against the Arizona Diamondbacks where he didn’t allow a run in 5 innings of work. This will be Strahm’s first career start against the Reds.
First pitch is scheduled for 10:10 PM EDT. Let’s go Reds. You’re our favorite team.
