The Reds earned a sweep over the Mets with a win on Sunday by a score of 3-1. That made it six wins in a row for the Reds on back-to-back sweeps. During that six-game winning streak the Reds have outscored their opponents 34 – 16. They have gotten solid starting pitching as they did yesterday as well from the right arm of Johnny Cueto. Cueto allowed one run on six hits over seven innings of work. Today the Reds will send Mat Latos to the mound looking for their seventh straight win. Latos is 5-0 in his last 10 starts.
The Indians come into this series having lost five of their last six games including a loss yesterday to the Pirates by a score of 9-5. Although they have struggled the Indians still sit in second place in the division but the third-place Tigers are gaining on them quickly. Cleveland has been struggling on offense during their tough stretch while their pitching has kept him in most games. Tonight the Indians will turn to sinker baller Derek Lowe who is trying to get back to where he was when he was stellar at the beginning of the season.
These two teams play last week and Cincinnati has been hot ever since these two teams met with Cleveland struggling. We like Cincinnati as a very slight moneyline favorite in this game but before wagering read online sportsbook reviews.
