In his last outing he pitched six innings giving up eight hits and three earned runs in a win over the Cubs. In his only start against the Phillies he gave up seven hits and six earned runs in six innings of work.

Cincinnati’s bats continue to pace this club as they are ranked first in the NL in team batting average (.273) and runs scored (430), averaging 4.94 runs per game. They have three players in their lineup with 55 or more RBI’s led by Joey Votto’s 60. Votto also leads the team with 22 HR’s.

With last night’s win, Philadelphia is now 4-6 SU in their last 10 games and has an overall record of 44-40; 5 ½ games in back of Atlanta in the NL East. The Phillies are 24-18 SU at home and 30-30 ATS as a favorite. In their last 10 games against the Reds, the total has stayed under in five of them.

Joe Blanton will be on the mound tonight for Philadelphia. For the year, he is 3-5 with a 6.27 ERA in 12 starts. In his last outing he lasted 6.1 innings giving up six hits and five earned runs against the Pirates. Lifetime against the Reds he is 2-0 with an ERA of 3.92.

They are currently ranked 11th in the NL with a team batting average of .257. Their 399 runs scored; an average of 4.75 per game ranks them fifth in the league.

Philadelphia is 11-5 SU in their last 16 games against Cincinnati, including going 5-1 at home in the last six. Even though the Reds have struggled on the road against this team, they have a good chance of tagging Blanton with some early runs and holding on to even this series at a game apiece.
