Reds Impressed on Sunday

The Reds sure impressed on Sunday scoring four runs and that was enough for the victory. The pitching was sure dominant giving up only one run. The Reds are averaging 4.15 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.21 runs per game. The offense is ranked 20th while the pitching is ranked 11th. They do have a negative run differential of -0.06 which is 15th in the league. Elly De La Cruz has hit nine home runs and driven in 24 RBIs so far this season.

St. Louis Cardinals vs San Francisco Giants Prediction

Runs are going to be hard to come by in this game. Lodoo has been solid this season sitting with an ERA of 3.34. Lance Lynn has also been strong and in his last start he gave up only one run. Both teams are going to really struggle to get the offense going here, and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to be lower scoring. Look for only three or four runs to be scored total. Back the under.
