He gave up no runs on five hits while striking out eight and walking two. He has not allowed any runs on 5 hits with 2 walks and 8 strikeouts in 7 innings versus the Phillies in his career.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Cincinnati's last 7 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Cincinnati's last 9 games when playing on the road against Philadelphia.
Philadelphia Phillies are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 13 of Philadelphia's last 19 games against Cincinnati.
Philadelphia are 9-4 SU in their last 13 games at home.
The Phillies bounced back and took the win in the first game of the series at home. For this game they'll send ranger Suzrez to the mound who has been insane lately allowing no runs in 4 of his last 6 starts and the Phillies have won 5 of those games. The Reds struggle offensively against Syndergaard and were dominated by Suarez the last time they met. Lodolo will get the ball who was solid in his last start vs Phillies holding them to zero runs across 7 innings. This should be another low scoring game as both starters will be dominant. Take the under.
PICK: Under 8 (-110)
