Tuesday’s MLB matchup between the Cincinnati Reds and New York Yankees will take place at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees have a 61-25 overall record going into this game, but they have dropped two straight games to the Boston Red Sox. The pitching was a major problem in the final game on Sunday, allowing 11 runs, which resulted in the five-run loss. The Yankees’ pitching and offence are two of the best in baseball. With 30 home runs and 65 RBIs this season, Aaron Judge is enjoying a fantastic campaign.
The Reds, who are on the opposing side of this contest, have won four straight games while having an overall record of 32-54. The Reds offence had a strong game on Sunday, scoring 10 runs, which helped the team win. The Reds’ pitching has generally struggled this season, allowing 5.38 runs per game, which ranks 29th in the league. 50 runs were scored and 18 home runs were hit by Brandon Drury.
Graham Ashcraft, who is pitching for the Reds, has a 4-2 record and a 4.35 ERA. He went six innings, giving up 10 hits and two runs in his most recent start against the New York Mets.
The Yankees will be represented by pitcher Gerrit Cole, who has an 8-2 record and a 3.26 ERA. He went six innings in his most recent start against the Boston Red Sox, allowing five hits and five runs.
In their previous six home interleague games, the Yankees are 6-0. In their last 17 away games against a team with a home winning percentage higher than.600, the Reds are 3-14. In the Yankees’ previous five games overall, the over is 5-0. In the Reds’ previous six away interleague games, the under is 6-0.
Cole had a rough start, so I don’t have much faith in him to do well right now. In his previous start, Ashcraft only allowed two runs, but he also allowed ten hits and pitched the entire time under pressure. The Yankees’ hitters will start at Ashcraft and add runs to the score.
