The Cincinnati Reds will host the Arizona Diamondbacks in an NL showdown on Tuesday night. It will be the first of a three-game set at Great American Ball Park.

Arizona heads into this one after splitting a 4-game series at Washington. They won their last game 5-2 on Sunday. Madison Bumgarner went 5 innings, allowing 1 run on 2 hits with 5 strikeouts. From the dish they had 11 hits but were 0-6 with runners in scoring position. To start the season, the Diamondbacks have a .223 team batting average and .698 OPS. Eduardo Escobar leads the team with 6 home runs and 11 RBI.

Starting for the Diamondbacks on Tuesday will be righty Zac Gallen. In his one start this season, he went 4 innings against Oakland, allowing 1 run with 8 strikeouts. The only other time he has faced the Reds was in September of 2019. He went 5.2 innings, giving up 3 home runs in the loss.

The Reds lost their last game 6-3 at home against the Indians on Sunday. Wade Miley gave up 4 runs in the start, getting out-dueled by Shane Bieber. From the dish they had 7 hits and were 1-7 with runners in scoring position. Tyler Naquin homered in the 8th for his team-leading 6th of the season. To start the year, the Reds have a .264 team batting average and .808 OPS. Tucker Barnhart leads the team with a .382 batting average and 1.109 OPS.

Luis Castillo will get the start for the Reds on Tuesday. So far in 2021, he has a 1-1 record, 7.04 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 12 strikeouts. In his career against this Diamondbacks lineup, he has allowed a .104 batting average with 17 strikeouts in 47 at bats.

The Reds are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 7-2 at home in 2021, and 7-4 as the favorite this season. The Over is 10-5 in their games.

The Diamondbacks are 4-6 in their last 10 games, 4-7 on the road in 2021, and 6-9 as the dog this season. The under is 9-7 in their games.

The Diamondbacks took 2 of 3 when these two faced in Arizona earlier this month. However, Cincinnati has been a different team at home. Their .301 batting average, 18 home runs, 73 runs and .929 OPS at home all lead the majors. Starter Luis Castillo has been up and down to start the season, but he pitched 7 shutout innings in his last start at home. I like the Reds to get their revenge in this one. Give me Cincinnati to win.
