The Reds and Marlins continue their series Tuesday night as the Miami looks to make it 2 in a row after a 6-3 win in the series opener on Monday night.
Miami continued their push toward a Wild Card spot as they grabbed a series opening win on Monday night.
With Stanton out, Miami immediately adapted by placing Ichiro Suzuki in Right Field and putting Marcell Ozuna into that 4 hole in the lineup. Ozuna promptly blasted a homerun and Ichiro had a run along with an RBI as the Marlins looked fine.
Miami will send out RH Jose Urena, who is getting his 2nd shot at being in the starting rotation.
Urena was sent back to Triple A after some mixed results in his last rotation stint. On July 29th he allowed 8 runs in 4.1 innings to the Cardinals, which sealed his fate and knocked him out of the rotation.
He has thrown 5.0 scoreless in his last 2 Triple A outings.
Cincinnati doesn’t have much too offer and after Monday’s loss, they have even less to offer.
Speedy OF Billy Hamilton left the game with a bruised knee and is likely out for Tuesday’s contest. Hamilton ran into the wall as he attempted to track down a fly ball.
One silver lining for this team has been Joey Votto. Since the All Star break, Votton has hit .455.
Cincinnati sends out their most reliable pitcher, by far, in RH Anthony DeSclafani. The RH brings in a record of 6-1 with an ERA of 3.11.
DeSclafani does come in off his first loss of the season, where he allowed 3 runs on 6 hits to St. Louis.
He is 3-0 on the season at home with an ERA of 1.93 in 4 starts.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
The Reds being favorites isn’t surprising given the pitching matchup, but it’s tough to find any value on this team laying juice.
They have been so unreliable this season and now with Hamilton down, who can get on base for this team and get things rolling?
