Coming off Milwaukee L.A. sailing OVER 7 with final score of 5-7 L.A.
Taking the game to Nationals Park. Washing leading 4 game series 2-0.
Cincinnati Reds at Washington Nationals.
If your up with the Reds you know they're not hitting, not scoring. They've gone zero runs in last game, that was 0-1 Washington win, went 1-8, 2-4, 0-2 and 2-3, that's 5 runs in 4 games against Washington and Cubs. They went 1-3 in that span, Latos burned the Cubs 1-0 for a win, but that's not comforting. The last time Cincinnati won with some gusto was April 22nd with Mike Leake on the mound against the Cubs. Mike has been fantastic of late and Reds offense have always supported good amount of runs when Mike takes his turn. Leake was hit against Washington in Nationals home opener, but not without the Reds doing some hitting back of their own. The Reds will face Dan Haren who's fighting some demons of his own. He did have a pretty good outing, though not enough to be a quality start or a team win, 3 runs on 6 hits in 5 innings, only to lose 2-3 to St Louis Cardinals. Not sure if his game will improve here, but the Reds hit him hard the last time they met. The line is tight and Cincinnati looks poised to post some runs behind Mike Leake. The Nationals 8-6 at home are money loser and Reds having one of the best home record in contrast to second from last road record with a too wide of a gap. On the average talent of star players do not vary from field to field this much and should correct itself. The Nationals bullpen is suspect.
Riding Leake and the Reds to take a rare road win for a small redemption.
CINCINNATI REDS +103 for 1 unit(L)
