The Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at American Family Field. In the first game of the series, it was the Brewers that secured the 6-3 victory. On Wednesday, the Brewers offense was strong again putting up 18 runs on the way to the victory. 

The Milwaukee Brewers currently sit with a 17-8 record overall and they have really been heating up. To start the season the offense wasn’t great, but they have been getting hot including the 18 runs on Wednesday. Rowdy Tellez has been the top player for the Brewers hitting seven home runs and driving in 21 RBIs. Willy Adames is also strong scoring six home runs and driving in 17 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Cincinnati Reds who sit with a 3-21 record overall and they might be going for a historically bad season. The Reds have lost eight games in a row and over their last five games, they have scored only four runs or less. The pitching also hasn’t been good, but the offense needs to find a way to get going here. Tyler Naquin has hit two home runs and driven in 10 RBIs.

Getting the start for the Reds is Hunter Greene who sits with an 1-3 record and an ERA of 6.00. In his last start against the Rockies, he went 4.1 innings giving up six hits and four runs. 

On the mound for the Brewers is Adrian Houser who sits with a 2-2 record and an ERA of 2.53. In his last start against the Cubs, he went six innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

The Reds are 5-22 in thier last 27 road games. The Brewers are 6-1 in their last seven games on grass. The under is 6-0 in the Brewers last six games during game 3 of the series. The under is 3-0-1 in the Brewers last four games played on Thursday. The over is 6-1 in the Reds last seven games on grass.

The Brewers are coming off a game where they put up 18 runs, and in this game, I expect they will continue the offensive success. In Greene’s last start he went 4.1 innings giving up six hits and four runs. Look for Greene to get lit up by the Brewers and Milwaukee is going to win this game on the run line.
