DeSclafani was rocked in his last outing, but walked away with the no-decision as Cincinnati would later go on to lose to the Chicago White Sox 8-12. He went 5.1 innings giving up six hits, five earned runs and three home runs while he struck out five and walked one.
In six starts, DeSclafani owns a low strikeout (7.75 K/9) and walk (2.67 BB/9) rate, while he has struggled containing the long ball as he has a high 2.41 HR/9. The end-result is a high 5.08 ERA and an even higher 5.77 FIP.
Cincinnati continues to play winning baseball in the past week where they won four of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .261/.352/.393 to go with 15 extra-base hits and 33 RBI.
Clevinger was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start and picked up his seventh win of the season in a 15-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics. He went six innings giving up eight hits and three earned runs while he struck out five and walked two.
In 17 innings, Clevinger owns a solid strikeout (8.10 K/9) to walk (2.95 BB/9) rate, while he has also been solid at stranding base runners (76.7% LOB%) and containing the long ball (0.57 HR/9). The end-result is a solid 3.11 ERA and a similar 3.19 FIP.
Cleveland has been on a tear in the past week as they were able to win five of their last six contests. During that span their lineup has been hot as they are slashing .302/.368/.474 to go with 27 extra-base hits and 45 RBI.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: Cleveland takes down their interstate rivals Cincinnati
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Indians -1.5
In the five innings DeSclafani pitched on the road this season, he owns a 3.18 ERA and a slash line of .150/.190/.450, but that is too small of a stat line to trust after he just imploded in his last outing and just put in a bleak June where he owned a 4.45 ERA. Cleveland’s lineup is just too hot right now and they hit even better at home. Cincinnati’s lineup may get some runs here and there against Clevinger, but I just expect this hot Cleveland lineup to outscore Cincinnati.
