Reds vs. Angels
9 ov-125 at PINNACLE
#MLB Free Pick from Mike Lundin
The Los Angeles Angels hammered the Cincinnati Reds in 9-2 victory on Monday. I think we'll see another high-scoring game as the three-game series continues tonight.
Tim Adleman (2-1, 3.68 ERA) takes the ball for the Reds. The 28 year old rookie was tagged with five runs (four earned) on five hits with three homers in five innings of a 6-5 loss at Texas his last start. He's pitched more than five innings in just one of his six major leagues start so I think it's a fair assumption he'll leave the game early only to hand over the ball to the worst bullpen in baseball.
The Halos turn to veteran right-hander Jered Weaver (9-11, 5.31 ERA). He held the Jays to a pair of runs in 5 2/3 innings of a 6-3 win his last time out but had surrendered four earned runs or more in each of his previous three starts. Cincy has nothing to play for but pride, but the team has not stopped trying and the Reds have swung their bats alright in recent games.
Over is 4-1-1 in the last six head-to-head meetings and 8-2 in the Reds' last 10 games following a loss.
