This is the 3rd installment of this 4 game National League series where it’s all tied up at 1-1. Cincinnati took game 1 with a score of 3-2, while the Pirates answered back to win game 2 at 4-2.

The Reds aren’t doing too good either with also 2 wins in their last 6 games. The team made 11 total runs in their last 3 matchups, and are sitting on a .436 win percentage. The Reds actually started strong in the last game with Eugenio Suarez getting the 2 run homer early in the 1st, while Mike Moustakas got a solo home run in the 4th. This would be the only points the Reds would make in the game. Trevor Bauer got the loss despite his good performance of 1 earned run allowed in 6 innings. Nick Castellanos is their best player this season with a record of 34 hits, 25 RBIs, and 11 home runs. The Reds are 15th place in pitching with a team earned run average of 4.47, while their offense is terrible in the 28th spot in the league with a team BAA of .215. The Reds are now 11th in the National League with a 17-22 record and are 4th in the NL Central Division. Antony Desclafani will be their starter in game 3. He is 1-2 with a 7.71 ERA, and 14 strikeouts this season.

Cincinnati Reds vs Pittsburgh Pirates. MLB’s pick for the 3rd game will go to the Cincinnati Reds -135. Both pitchers are having a terrible season, which the same can be said to both teams overall. They are low scoring teams with abysmal batting performances. The Reds have the better bullpen overall which puts them on a slight edge in this matchup. Desclafani won’t last long in the game with the way he is playing this season, so their bullpen will back him up. The Reds won 4 of their last games against the Pirates and will also win in this match predicted at 6-4.
