Cincinnati Reds vs Colorado Rockies Prediction 

Cincinnati comes into this game last in the NL Central standings, but they have played well over the last 10 days and could pass Pittsburgh if they have a solid series here. Colorado has one of the worst records in baseball, but they have been great at home recently. The Rockies are starting Feltner, who has been roughed up in three of his last five starts. The Reds are going with Abbott, who has had a good season, but did not pitch well in his last outing. I know Colorado has played very well at home recently, but I don’t trust Feltner at all against a Cincinnati team that is starting to heat up. My Cincinnati Reds vs Colorado Rockies prediction is for the Reds to get the win.
