Cincinnati Reds – In Depth
The Reds are sending Andrew Abbott to the mound. Abbott, wearing jersey number 41, has been a revelation this season. With a 3-0 record, an impressive ERA of 1.14, and a WHIP of 0.97 over 23.2 innings pitched, he has shown control and poise. Abbott has conceded only 14 hits and 3 home runs, striking out 22. While the Reds have an overall team ERA of 4.98, Abbott has been their rock.
The Reds' batting has been led by Jake Fraley, who boasts 11 home runs and a .270 average, coupled with 47 RBIs. Spencer Steer has the highest average on the team, hitting .274 with an OBP of .361. The team has a collective average of .257 with 78 home runs. Their ability to get on base, with an OBP of .336, has kept them in games.
One of the concerns for the Reds is the injury to Ben Lively, who is on a 15-day injured list as of June 24th. His absence might affect the depth of their pitching.
Baltimore Orioles – In Depth
The Orioles are countering with Tyler Wells, donning jersey number 68. Wells holds a 6-3 record with a 3.22 ERA over 86.2 innings. Though solid, his stats don’t quite match Abbott’s. He’s given up 18 home runs and has a WHIP of 0.89. The Orioles’ team ERA is 4.26, slightly better than the Reds.
On the offensive side, the Orioles have Anthony Santander leading with 14 home runs and 47 RBIs, batting .271. Austin Hays is the team leader in batting average, sitting at .318. The Orioles hold a team average of .253 with 94 home runs. However, their on-base percentage at .320 is slightly lower than the Reds’.
The Orioles are dealing with injuries to key players including Hudson Haskin, Mychal Givens, John Means, Austin Voth, and James McCann. This could significantly impact their performance.
Though the Orioles have the home advantage, the Reds have Andrew Abbott, who has been an unshakable rock on the mound. Abbott’s performance and the Reds’ ability to get on base, coupled with Orioles’ key injuries, make the Reds favorites for this game. Tyler Wells has allowed 2 or more runs in his last 4 starts and against a hot Reds offense it will be a hard task for him.
