Cincinnati Reds vs San Diego Padres Prediction

I'm not running to the window to back the Cincinnati Reds and Nick Martinez, as the guy has been hit hard so far this season and the Padres' lineup is more than capable of adding to those struggles. With that said, the Padres have lost 5 straight games, the offense isn't producing and Darvish hasn't pitched in two weeks. There's probably better options out there on a stacked Tuesday MLB card, but if forced to pick, I'd lean Reds. The Padres aren't playing well, and Darvish hasn't pitched in two weeks. It's Reds or pass for me.
