The Cincinnati Reds have a mighty big challenge on their hands this Wednesday, as they take on Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers who have appeared beatable in recent times, so the Reds could have a chance to spring the upset.
Cincinnati is actually no stranger to beating the Dodgers, as they picked up the win in game number one of this series by a score of 5-3 to snap what was a 7 game losing streak against the unlikeliest of opponents.
It is pretty crazy that the Reds are only 10 and 12 as well, as they have batted in the most amount of runs in all of the major leagues with 122 in an offensive explosion that not many people saw coming.
Nick Castellanos is a big reason for the offense being where it is, as he has already hit 7 home runs and has 15 home runs and he certainly will be excited about the challenge of facing Kershaw on Wednesday, as he has gotten locked in since getting roughed up on opening day.
Sonny Gray will get the start here, but he may be on a short leash, as he has an ERA close to 8 and the righty has not been able to go 5 full innings since returning from injury and things probably won’t turn around for him here against the Dodgers.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Looking beatable is probably putting it lightly, as this team has only been able to win 2 of their last 8 games and considering this is one of the best teams in recent memory, at least on paper, that is a major shock, as the bullpen has been the reason for the majority of their struggles so far.
Luckily for the Dodgers though, they probably will not need to trust in the bullpen too much with Clayton Kershaw on the mound, as the Dodger’s ace has looked incredible over his last 4 outings and I fully expect that to continue here against the Reds despite their batting prowess.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
It seems pretty tough to lay a run and a half with a team like the Dodgers right now, but given the guys they have in this roster I do not expect this losing stretch to last very long and I think they pick up another win here against the Reds.
The Dodgers, especially at home, can trust Kershaw for a quality start nearly every time he heads to the mound and although he goes up against a solid pitcher in Sonny Gray, Gray has not been himself coming off of that injury, so I do not see him lasting all that long and so Kershaw should be able to take over.
