The Cincinnati Reds will play the Oakland Athletics in Game 1 of their series on Friday night at Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California.
The Cincinnati Reds are 10-15 this season and they have won three games in a row. Cincinnati is coming off of a series sweep, where they won all three games against Texas. The Cincinnati pitching staff has a 5.01 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and a .276 opponent batting average this year. The Reds offense has scored 107 runs with a .236 batting average and a .319 on base percentage. TJ Friedl is batting .298 with two home runs and 11 RBI’s for the Reds. The projected starting pitcher for Cincinnati is Luis Cessa, who is 0-3 with a 10.80 ERA and a 2.34 WHIP over 16.2 innings pitched this season.
The Oakland Athletics are 5-21 this season and they have lost 12 of their last 14 games. Oakland is coming off of a series loss to the Angels, where they lost three out of the four games. The Oakland pitching staff has an 8.01 ERA, a 1.77 WHIP, and a .294 opponent batting average. The Athletics offense has scored 99 runs with a .224 batting average and a .305 on base percentage this year. Shea Langeliers is batting .222 with six home runs and 13 RBI’s for Oakland. The projected starting pitcher for Oakland is Kyle Muller, who is 0-2 with a 7.23 ERA and a 2.03 WHIP over 23.2 innings pitched this season.
Oakland comes into this game as the worst team in all of baseball and their pitching has been horrible this season. The Athletics have a team ERA of 8.01 and they have allowed 57 runs in their last six games. Cincinnati has struggled as well this season, but they are coming off of a sweep of the Rangers in their last series. Cincinnati is starting Luis Cessa, who has allowed 18 runs over his last 11.1 innings pitched. The Athletics will start Kyle Muller, who has allowed 16 runs over his last 13 innings pitched. I think we are going to see a higher scoring game here, but I like the Athletics to get the home win.
