The Cincinnati Reds and the Boston Red Sox will play the 2nd game of this short series at the Fenway Park on Wednesday. The Reds won at the Fenway Park for the first time since October 22, 1975.
The Reds get here with a 17-31 record and have won 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.23 runs while allowing 5.4 runs per game. Brandon Dury leads the team with 26 RBI and 8 home runs. Tyler Naquin is batting for .255 avg.
Luis Castillo struck out 10 while pitching six innings of one-hit ball.
Hunter Greene (2-6, 5.89 ERA) will start for the Reds in the 2nd game of the series. Greene earned the win Thursday, despite allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings against the Cubs. He struck out six.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox get to this game with a 23-27 record and have lost 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.78 runs and allowing 4.43 runs per game. Rafael Devers is leading the team with 11 home runs and 26 RBI while JD Martinez is batting for .363 AVG.
Wacha started in a Boston loss for the first time since opening week despite allowing zero earned runs on three hits and striking out three.
Garrett Whitlock (1-1, 3.49 ERA) will take the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Red Sox. Whitlock didn't factor in the decision during Friday's 12-8 loss to the Orioles after giving up two runs on five hits over six innings. He had four strikeouts and one walk.
Cincinnati are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games.
Cincinnati are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games against Boston.
Boston are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Boston's last 8 games against Cincinnati.
The Red Sox continue to struggle offensively as they have scored only 1 run in their last 2 games. The Reds have found some good offense lately and managed to beat the Red Sox at home for the time since 1975. However, Hunter Greene has struggled this season and the Red have won in only 2 of his 9 starts. This a great spot for the Red Sox to bounce back and avoid another loss at home.
PICK: Red Sox -1.5 (-105)
