Preview

The Arizona Diamondbacks and the Cincinnati Reds will play the 3rd game series at the Great American Ball Park on Wednesday. The Reds beat the Dbacks again 14-8 and have the lead 2-0 on the series.

Arizona Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks get to this game with a 26-31 record and have lost 5 of their last 6 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:

Merrill Kelly (4-3, 3.66 ERA) will be on the mound for the Diamondbacks in the 3rd game of the series. Kelly took the loss against the Dodgers on Saturday, giving up 3 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks while striking out across 5 innings. He had one start against the Reds last season and allowed 3 runs in 5 innings pitched.

Cincinnati Reds

The Reds get here with a 20-35 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: 

Mike Minor (0-1, 11.25 ERA) will start for the Reds in the 3rd game of the series. Despite of his poor performance in his first start with the Reds this season, Minor will take the mound for this game.

BETTING TRENDS

Arizona are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games against Cincinnati.

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

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Cincinnati's last 5 games against Arizona.

The total has gone OVER in 14 of Cincinnati's last 20 games at home.

Prediction

The Dbacks offense woke up on Tuesday scoring 8 runs in the game that weren't enough to beat the Reds but they might have a chance against the veteran Mike Minor who has been bad the last 2 seasons and struggled in his first start with the Reds. Kelly has been decent this season so I think the Dbacks can win this game.

PICK: Diamondbacks ML (-105)
