The Chicago White Sox and Cincinnati Reds meet Saturday in MLB action at Great American Ball Park.
The Chicago White Sox look for a win after winning 11 of their last 14 games. The White Sox have scored six runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The White Sox have won six straight games when scoring four or more runs. Jose Abreu leads the White Sox with 68 hits and 51 RBI while Tim Anderson and Eloy Jimenez have combined for 119 hits and 58 RBI. Dallas Keuchel gets the ball, and he is 6-2 with a 2.19 ERA and 32 strikeouts this season. Keuchel is 0-0 with a 3.21 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Reds.
The Cincinnati Reds look to build on their six-game winning streak. The Reds have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Reds have won seven of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Nick Castellanos leads the Reds with 44 hits and 30 RBI while Joey Votto and Jesse Winker have combined for 72 hits and 40 RBI. Trevor Bauer gets the ball, and he is 4-3 with a 1.71 ERA and 83 strikeouts this season. Bauer is 8-5 with 3.58 ERA and 136 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Dallas Keuchel has allowed zero earned runs and nine hits in his last 10 innings while Trevor Bauer has allowed two earned runs and 13 hits in his last 20 innings. The Chicago White Sox have been a team this season I'm not looking to bet against often this season, but it's the Reds who have turned their season around over the last week and Bauer has been money this season, but through three starts this month especially. On the season, Bauer is allowing just a .157 batting average and .225 on base percentage.
In what should be a fun battle between two red hot pitchers, I'll back the Reds at home with their ace on the hill.
