The Reds come into this game with a 2-7 record overall and the offense has been a big issue for this team, especially in this series.

Andrew Heaney looked good in his first start of the season and the Reds bats are going to be ice cold again in this game. The Dodgers have an elite offense and they are going to chase Mahle early from this game. Back the Dodgers on the run line.
