Two teams in at the bottom of the barrel gave the fans something they didn’t want on Wednesday night.
The Braves and Reds played into extra innings deep into the night and will now have a quick turnaround with a high noon game on getaway day.
If things weren’t hard enough on the Reds already, they now head into getaway on Thursday with a taxed bullpen.
And as the season has gone, after playing 12 innings and using almost every player, the Reds ended up blowing an 8-7 lead and fell 9-8. The Reds pitching staff ranks 30th in the league, as they sit with a team ERA of 5.44.
They’re extremely bad in just about every pitching category. They sit 30th in WHIP at 1.56, 30th in Ks with 440, and 24th in quality starts with just 26.
Trying to just give them some length, the Reds go with Dan Straily here. The RH has won 2 of his last 3 starts and has allowed just 3 runs total over his last 2.
He has continued to make it through at least 5.0 innings, while typically hitting the 6th or 7th inning, which would be a huge boost here on Thursday afternoon.
Winning at home has been a rare occasion for this Atlanta team.
Their fans and even players probably didn’t imagine winning a game after trailing heading into the bottom of the 12th. This also came after the fact that they had the bases loaded with nobody out in the bottom of the 11th and failed to score.
However, the Braves scored 2 and grab themselves their 8th home win on the season.
The Braves pitching has been right there with the Reds, as they have a team ERA of 4.52, which sits 24th in the league.
They’ll send out Matt Wisler here, who is just 2-7 on the season with an ERA of 4.36. Wisler comes into this one losing 4 consecutive starts.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
The Reds and Braves need length from both starters here.
Given the quick turnaround, this is a spot where hitters will be swinging early and produce a lot of swings and misses.
