The Reds are 5-5 in their last 10 heading into Thursday action. For a team that is under .500 that is not good enough to get back into the race. The question is what is going to change to get them back in the hunt.
Cincinnati has some odds splits in that they are 4th in the Majors in homers and 28th in runs. They are just not able to make contact this season, 28th in average too.
With Sonny Gray and Trevor Bauer pitching so well Luis Castillo is flying below the radar. That is easy to do when you have an 0-5 record but his peripherals are actually good. He has to be due for a win right.
Cincinnati’s bullpen is second in the Majors in strikeout rate but overall below average. The bullpen ERA is over 5, ruining a bunch of quality starts
CIncinnati has to take advantage of this series. I feel like that has been the case for the last three weeks though.
For the Pirates, the rest of the season is only about respect. For some reason the only team they have played well against this season is Milwaukee. Though that might say more about the Brewers.
The Pirates are just not hitting this season. They have the lowest OPS in the league and if you look closely it is not like guys are underperforming. It is just that there is not much there.
Steven Brault. continues to get the ball despite middling to poor performances. They do not have a lot of good options but at least he keeps the ball in the ballpark.
The Bucs were able to snag Anthony Alford from the Jays system. He is a supreme athlete and maybe someone who can give the team a jolt.
