The Cincinnati Reds and Minnesota Twins meet Sunday in MLB action at Target Field.
The Cincinnati Reds look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Reds have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Reds have won eight straight games when scoring four or more runs. Nick Castellanos leads the Reds with 49 hits and 34 RBI while Joey Votto and Shogo Akiyama have combined for 80 hits and 30 RBI. Sonny Gray gets the ball, and he is 5-3 with a 3.73 ERA and 68 strikeouts this season. Gray is 2-4 with a 5.30 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Twins.
The Minnesota Twins look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Twins have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Twins have won eight straight games when scoring four or more runs. Nelson Cruz leads the Twins with 56 hits and 33 RBI while Jorge Polanco and Eddie Rosario have combined for 108 hits and 60 RBI. Rich Hill gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 3.27 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. Hill is 5-3 with a 3.34 ERA and 65 strikeouts in his career against the Reds.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Sonny Gray has allowed 12 runs and 13 hits in his last nine innings while Rich Hill has allowed five runs and 13 hits in his last 17 innings. Sonny Gray has a 5.03 ERA and .253 allowed batting average on the road this season while Rich Hill has a 4.29 ERA and .244 allowed batting average at home this season. This is a pretty even pitching matchup overall, but Hill has been better this month and he's pitching in a hitting friendly park where it looks like the Twins have finally broken out of their offensive slump.
I'll back the Minnesota Twins to finish the regular season with another victory.
