Philadelphia Phillies vs Cincinnati Reds Prediction

I’ll lean toward the Phillies in this one, but I could go either way. Sanchez has been on a nice run over his last two starts with just one earned over 12.0 innings. He’s only 1-1 in that time, though. As for Abbott, he’s given up five earned over his last 18.0 innings and only has a 1-2 record to show for it. Both guys will need some backup from the bats on Tuesday.

In the opener of this set, Philly got a great start from Ranger Suarez with 7.0 clean frames, two hits, one walk and five strikeouts. The offense did a nice job as well; three different players had multiple hits. I like Philadelphia to keep it going, but this one should be closer on the scoreboard. The Reds probably won’t stay idle for long.
