Cincinnati Reds Will look to start a new winning streak when they travel to open a three-game series with Denver colorado rockies on Monday
Flopping and Slurring and Gambling, Oh My! , worst of the week
Cincinnati is trying to play its way to a .500 record, and it was headed in the right direction thanks to a three-game winning streak, but it came to an end on Sunday. reds Left-hander Braxton Garrett and Miami’s bullpen led to a 3–1 loss to the Marlins. Cincinnati had just five hits and left eight runners on base.
lack of crime has been a rarity reds in recent days, as they managed to score at least five in all three games of the winning streak
We are really confident about the way we are swinging the bat and the way we are batting. Reds manager David Bell said after the loss to Miami. “We thought we would get more runs (Sunday) and have to give credit to you (Garrett). … That was really the difference.
Cincinnati will look to rediscover its offense on Monday, especially considering its pitching rotation took a big hit on Sunday when left-hander Nick Lodolo went on the 15-day injured list due to a calf injury. Lodolo is 2-1 with a 6.29 ERA this season.
reds There may be more leaning on right-hander Hunter Green (0-3, 3.69 ERA), who will be looking to earn his first win of the season on Monday. Green lost his only career start against Colorado on April 29, 2022, allowing four runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings. He struck out six and drove in four runs.
In his most recent start, Green took the loss last Wednesday against the New York Mets. He allowed two runs on six hits while walking four and striking out four in 5 1/3 innings.
of rocks Connor will turn to Siebold (1-0, 4.56), who, like Green, doesn’t have much experience against his opponent. Siebold has faced Reds Just once — when he was with the Red Sox — he allowed four runs on six hits over five innings of a 5-1 loss last September. He issued a walk and picked up four strikeouts.
However, things have been headed in the right direction for Siebold since being thrown into Colorado’s rotation due to some injuries. The 27-year-old earned his first major league win last Tuesday after allowing one run on three hits over five innings against the Pirates.
“It feels great, it feels like the monkey’s been off my back a little bit,” Siebold said after the win. “I just wanted to pitch the team five or six innings.”
Siebold has done just that in each of his two starts for Colorado this season, tossing five innings of three-run ball on May 4 against the Brewers. Since being thrust into the starting rotation, Siebold has posted a 3.60 ERA.
of rocks Avoided getting swept away with a 4-0 win over the Phillies coming Sunday. However, CJ Cron left the game in the third inning due to back spasms, but he did not emerge unscathed.
Colorado will be hoping Charlie Blackmon can stay hot at the plate, as he’s gone 7-for-16 (.438) with two RBI and four runs in his last five games.
