Chen was able to pick up the win against the Colorado Rockies in his first start of the season. He went 5.1 innings giving up one earned off of four hits while striking out three and walking two. The earned run came off a solo home run by Charlie Blackmon.
It wasn’t a dominant start by any stretch considering he only produced four swinging strikes, but nevertheless he was able to hold a potent Rockies lineup to just one run. He may not have been dominant, but he was efficient as the lefty only needed 68 pitches to get through 5.1 innings.
Miami has been playing winning baseball in the last week winning four of their six contests. Their lineup is slashing .232/.283/.358 to go along with 15 extra-base hits for just 17 RBI.
Romano was knocked out early in his previous start against the Minnesota Twins, while he was marked with his third loss of the year. He only went 4.2 innings giving up two earned off of six hits while striking out one and walking two. It was his fourth straight game giving up a home run, while he owns a 1.74 HR/9.
The struggling pitcher now owns an inefficient 17:14 strikeout-to-walk ratio while his low K/9 sits at 4.94 compared to his high 4.06 BB/9. His ERA sits at 4.65, while his true colors are showing with his 5.93 FIP.
Cincinnati continues to be the laughing stock of the league as they’ve lost five of their seven contests in the last week. Their lineup however has been hitting well during that span as they are slashing .275/.365/.445 to go with 25 extra-base hits and 39 RBI.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction: Cincinnati gets their first win as favorites
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Reds -120
Romano is due for a bounce back game against a Miami lineup that owns a .585 OPS against righties. Cincinnati has been hitting the ball well lately and they have hit better against lefties than righties. Cincinnati is also 0-4 as favorites, so they should be due to finally get a win as small favorites.
