Trevor Bauer is a guy I’ve kind of soured on as the season’s gone on, but he’s still been pitching well, the results just haven’t always been there due to a lack of run support from the Reds’ offense. With that said, he’s still gone at least six innings in each of his last four starts, allowing two earned runs or less and I just think the Reds will want to make amends for letting one slip away on Tuesday. The Reds are in a three-team logjam for the two wild card spots and while Milwaukee won’t want to fall back either, starting Adrian Houser has been a liability for the Brewers, going 0-5 with a 6.75 ERA across his last eight starts. I think the Reds pull out a 4-1 or 5-1 win here, so I’ll side with the Reds on the RL as my premium pick for this game.
