The Cincinnati Reds face the San Diego Padres on Wednesday, April 20th, 2022 at Petco Park for game three of a three-game series. 

The San Diego Padres took down the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night by the final score of 6-2. The Padres had to erase a 1-0 deficit when former Padre Tommy Pham went deep in the first inning for the Reds, but San Diego was able to take control of the game almost instantaneously. Manny Machado hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the first to take the lead, and an Eric Hosmer RBI single in the same inning made it 3-1 Friars after one. The Padres would add a couple of runs in the fourth to break the game open a bit and the rest of the contest was smooth sailing for the now 8-5 Padres. The Reds fell to 2-10 on the year, giving Cincinnati the worst record in the MLB currently. 

The Cincinnati Reds are projected to bring right-hander Vladimir Gutierrez to the mound for game three of this series. Gutierrez improved in his second start of the year against the Dodgers have a rough season debut against the Braves earlier in the month. Gutierrez is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA on the year and he owns a 1.92 WHIP as well.

The San Diego Padres are set to send the left-handed prospect MacKenzie Gore to the bump to take on the Reds. Gore made his major league debut on Friday, April 15th against the Braves and he was rather successful despite Cincinnati losing the game 5-2. Gore allowed only two earned runs in 5.1 innings with three strikeouts. I'd like to see Gore miss more bats than he did in his first start, but he will get a good shot at that on Wednesday facing one of the weaker lineups in baseball in the Reds. 

I think we have a low-scoring game on our hands in this one and for that reason, I do think there is some value on the Reds getting the 1.5 runs on the run-line. To me, this is a one-run game either way and if the Reds were going to win a game in this three-game series, I think this is their best chance.
