The Indians and Reds continue their home and home 4 game set, as Cleveland looks to make it two in a row.
After going up 4-0, the Reds saw the Indians offense erupt en route to a 15-6 win.
The Reds raced out to a 4-0 lead, but one of the main problems this year has been the starting rotation.
John Lamb was knocked around by the Cleveland offense as the Reds pitching staff continues to try and figure things out.
Cincinnati has now gone 3-13 on the road and continues to struggle against the Indians. They have also dropped 6 of the last 7 series’ to the Indians.
Trying to right the ship here for the Reds, they’ll send out Alfredo Simon. The RH has struggled this year, but things have gotten a little better since his rough start. His ERA still sits at 8.67, but he has turned in a pair of quality starts. He dominated Cleveland last year when he was with the Tigers going 4-0 with an ERA of just 2.64.
The Indians struggled Saturday and Sunday to get runners on base. Then when they finally did, they struggled to hit with them on.
However, on Monday that wasn’t the case. The Indians went off for 15 runs and got production from everybody in the lineup. Yan Gomes and Marlon Byrd in particular were the biggest parts of that 15 run outburst, two guys the Indians absolutely need to get going. Both had a home run and multiple RBIs in the victory.
Cleveland will send out Danny Salazar here, who had a very odd start his last time out. He struck out 10, but walked 6 as he went just 5 innings because of pitch count. Salazar has just 1 career meeting with the Reds and he was knocked around for 5 runs on 5 hits in just 4 innings of work.
Cleveland is now 9-8 at Progressive Field after their win on Monday.
