The battle of Ohio awaits for us baseball fans on Friday, as the Reds look to climb back to the .500 mark when they take on the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.
It has been an up and down season so far for the Reds, but they have shown plenty of promise early on this year and if they can fix up their pitching just a bit, they very well could be a contender come October.
The batting has been outstanding so far, as this team has hit .245 which is good for 7th in the majors and they have managed to bat in 152 runs which has them placed in 4th. That is a night and day difference compared to last year with key additions making plenty of impact although they did not really need the bats in their last game picking up a 1-0 win over the White Sox.
The Reds could really use a quality start here on Friday and they send lefty Wade Miley to the mound to do just that and he very well could be the man for the job coming into this game with an ERA of 2.67 and a 3-2 record.
The Indians are absolutely rolling now with 9 wins in their last 11 games, as they have successfully shrugged off a rough start to the season, as it had looked like the loss of Francisco Lindor was going to sink this batting lineup.
Franmil Reyes is a guy I will have my eyes on all year, as he looks absolutely fantastic so far this year, and if he is able to stay healthy he is no doubt going to hit 30+ home runs and put this Indians team in a great spot to make the playoffs.
Zach Plesac is going to be on the mound here for the Indians and he will be looking to improve his numbers, as his ERA is almost at 5 and there is reason to believe he will continue to get better, as his velocity continues to tick upwards.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The total here does not seem high enough for me at 8.5, as neither of these starting pitchers have been un-hittable so far this year and these two batting lineups can be formidable.
The Reds bats have been rolling all year long, as they are statistically one of the best units in all the majors, and on the other side we have an Indians batting lineup who will not rate out well from an overall perspective, but they have been great as of late and they are once again in a good position to do some damage this Friday.
