Cleveland Guardians vs Cincinnati Reds Prediction

I’ll likely lean toward the Reds here. Much of that is due to McKenzie’s recent struggles. Over his last three starts, McKenzie has coughed up 12 earned runs in 15.1 innings total on 20 hits and eight walks. If he can’t find a good groove early in this one, Cleveland could be in trouble.

The Reds had a pretty solid weekend series versus the Cubs, scoring 17 runs in four games. If Cincinnati can bag a few scores early here they’ll be in good shape.
