Reds vs Mariners Prediction

Seattle has had some trouble hitting the ball this season, but they were able to erupt for nine runs on Monday night in their win. The Mariners are three games below .500 on the year and they are only hitting .210. Cincinnati is 9-7 to open the campaign and they have scored a lot more runs than Seattle has. The Reds are starting Hunter Greene, who pitched well in his first two starts, but allowed six earned runs last time out to Milwaukee. The Mariners are turning to Logan Gilbert, who has allowed six earned runs over 20.1 innings in three starts this year. I took the over in the game on Monday night and I like it again here. Greene struggled in his last start and I think Gilbert may have some issues slowing down Cincinnati here. Take the over.
