The Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Guardians face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Progressive Field. 

The Reds come into this game with a 9-26 record overall, but they did win three of their four games against the Pittsburgh Pirates. On Sunday the Pirates actually didn’t give up a hit, but they still lost. Over the last two games, the Reds only scored one goal total, and the offense has been inconsistent for most of the season. They are also giving up 5.87 runs per game which is last in the MLB. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Guardians who sit with a 16-17 record overall, and they lost two of three over the weekend against the Minnesota Twins. Over the last two games, the Guardians have scored only four runs total.  Jose Ramirez has been the top player for Cleveland hitting eight home runs and driving in 33RBIs. The offense is going to need to be good in this game.

Overton was strong in the last game, and the Guardians are going to struggle to score, much like they did the last couple of games against the Twins. Plesac is coming off a game where he gave up four runs, and the Reds are going to find offensive success in this game. Back the Reds on the money line.
