The Arizona Diamondbacks will host the Cincinnati Reds in an National League matchup on  Saturday. It will be the second game of a three-game set.

Cincinnati won for the 6th straight game after their 6-5 win on Friday. Starter Tyler Mahle went 4 innings, allowing 0 runs on 0 hits with 4 strikeouts. Tucker Barnhart hit the go-ahead single in the ninth to put them ahead. Tyler Naquin homered for the fifth time this season. The Reds had 11 hits in the game and were 4-17 with runners in scoring position. To start the season, the Reds have a .310 average and .970 OPS, both best in the majors.

Starting for the Reds will be righty Jeff Hoffman. In his first start he went 5 innings, allowing 1 run on 3 hits with 6 strikeouts. Against this Diamondbacks roster in his career he has allowed a .237 batting average with 5 home runs in 40 at bats.

The Diamondbacks came back to tie the game, but couldn’t not get the go-ahead run across in the late innings. Taylor Widener got the start, tossing 5 innings and allowing 3 runs on 7 hits. From the plate, Arizona had just 6 hits and were 1-9 with runners in scoring position. Eduardo Escobar hit a two-run shot for his second home run of the year. So far in 2021 the Diamondbacks have a .205 team batting average and 9 home runs.

The Diamondbacks will start righty Riley Smith. In his first start he went 5 innings against the Padres, allowing 3 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits with 4 strikeouts. This will be the first time he has faced anyone on this Reds roster.

The Reds are 7-3 in their last 10 games, 7-3 on the run line, and the over is 7-2-1.

Arizona has gone 3-7 in their last 10 games, 5-5 on the run line, and the under is 5-5.

The Reds are rolling, but eventually they will slow down. They will face the talented righty Riley Smith on Saturday. He has allowed just 3 earned runs in his last 6 appearances dating back to last season. On the other hand, the Diamondbacks bats came alive late, and should be playing with some extra juice after a tough loss at home.  Hoffman has also given up 5 home runs in just 40 at bats against this Arizona lineup. Give me the Diamondbacks to steal one at home.
