Preview

The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Cincinnati Reds will play the 2nd game series at the Great American Ball Park on Tuesday. The Reds dominated in the first of the series and blanked the Dbacks 7-0.

Arizona Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks get to this game with a 26-30 record and have lost 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.9 runs per game and allowing 4.5 runs. Christian Walker leads with 14 home runs and 26 RBI and Ketel Marte is batting for .262 AVG.

Zac Gallen leads the team with a 2.32 ERA and 53 strikeouts and 4 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:

Tyler Gilbert (0-2, 5.02 ERA) will be on the mound for the Diamondbacks in the 2nd game of the series. With Humberto Castellanos (elbow) moving to the 15-day injured list last week, Gilbert will be summoned from the minors to fill the opening in the rotation. In his last start with the Dbacks he allowed 4 home runs and a total of 6 runs in 5.2 innings pitched against the Dodgers.

Cincinnati Reds

The Reds get here with a 19-35 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.29 runs while allowing 5.4 runs per game. Brandon Dury leads the team with 28 RBI and 10 home runs. Kyle Farmer is batting for .265 avg.

Hunter Green tossed 7 scoreless innings earning the win against the Dbacks and leads the pitching staff with a 5.40 ERA, 72 strikeouts and 3 wins recorded for the Reds.

Probable Pitcher: 

Graham Ashcraft (2-0, 1.53 ERA) will start for the Reds in the 2nd game of the series. Ashcraft allowed only 1 run on 4 hits and a walk striking out 5 across 7 innings in an 8-1 win Thursday over the Nationals.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Arizona's last 10 games.

Arizona are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

Cincinnati are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Cincinnati's last 7 games against Arizona.

Prediction

The Dbacks continue to struggle offensively and they couldn't score a single run against a team that's allowing over 5 runs per game. The Reds will send Ashcraft to the mound and he has been really good in his 3 starts this season so expect another domination from the Reds.

PICK: Reds ML (-135)
