He is 2-2 with an ERA of 4.21 and 20 strikeouts in 5 appearances against the Dodgers in his career.

Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 1.42 ERA, 60 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher

Tony Gonsolin (1-0, 0.00 ERA) will take the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Dodgers. Gonsolin earned the win over the Angels on Tuesday by allowing just one hit and two walks over 6.1 scoreless innings. He had six strikeouts. He pitched 4 scoreless innings against the Reds earlier this season but didn't factor into the descision.


LA Dodgers are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games against Cincinnati.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of LA Dodgers' last 9 games on the road.

Cincinnati are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games at home.

Cincinnati are 4-10 SU in their last 14 games when playing at home against LA Dodgers.


The Dodgers have struggled lately as they are just 5-5 in their last 10 games and are without their best hitter Mookie Betts. They'll send Tony Gonsolin to the mound who has been outstanding this season and dominated the Reds across 4 innings earlier this season. The Reds are sending Tyler Mahle who has improved lately and just pitched 9 scoreless innings in his last start.  The Dodgers offense has been quiet lately and the under has cashed in 7 of their last 9 games on the road. Take the under.

PICK:  Under 9.5 (-110)
