Reds vs Tigers Match Details
Fixture: Cincinnati Reds @ Detroit Tigers
Date & Time: Wednesday, September 13, 6:40 p.m. EDT
Venue: Comerica Park, Detroit, MI
The Tigers’ Eduardo Rodriguez gets the ball tonight. The lefty is 11-7, with a 3.18 ERA through 22 starts. He’s quietly had a great season, and he’s facing a Reds squad that has a solid lineup. The Tigers have won five of Rodriguez’s last seven starts, so they have to be confident tonight, even after dropping Tuesday’s contest.
Cincinnati is handing the ball to Connor Phillips, who is making his second career MLB start. In his debut versus the Mariners, he go knocked around for six hits and five runs in 4 2/3 frames. He ended up with the no-decision, but the Reds went on to win 7-6. This wasn’t a good debut at all, but he should bounce back against a Tigers lineup that is averaging only 3.6 runs in their past seven games.
Cincinnati Reds vs Detroit Tigers Betting Prediction
The Reds have a lot more to play for, but they have a tough matchup versus Eduardo Rodriguez. Phillips got rocked last game, and the Tigers’ bullpen isn’t great, so expect the total to go over eight tonight, as it’s set pretty low.
