Giants have lost 2 of the first 3 versus the Reds, but remain in first place. Barry Zito took the loss on the mound yesterday for his six loss of loss of the season and Ryan Foglesong will take the hill tonight to try and salvage a split in the series. Vogelsong has been brilliant all season allowing just 78 hits in 96 innings of work.
The Reds are leading the NL Central but the division is very tightly packed. They have played well in San Francisco thus far and will be looking to complete the series win today. They will send Bronson Arroyo who has losses for others last five decisions to the mound tonight. Arroyo has allowed 102 hits in 93 innings of work and has a 4.13 ERA to
show for it.
San Francisco is 12-5 in their last 17 games following a loss, 10-5 in their last 15 games against the N.L. Central, and 9-1 in Vogelsong’s last 10 starts. Cincinnati is 5-1 in their last six games against the N.L. West, 8-3 in their last 11 games following a win, and 4-1 in Arroyo’s last five starts against the N.L. West. Cincinnati is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings of these two.
We actually like both pitchers in this match up and they both will likely know the importance of this game. So we like under for total runs scored but check the sports odds.
