The Milwaukee Brewers have been fading of late, and will look to get back on track when they finish their series against the Reds on Sunday.
The Brewers have lost seven of their last ten games and have fallen into third place in the NL Central. The biggest issue for the Brewers has been their hitting of late, outside of a few players.
Jackie Bradley Jr. has been slumping hard for the Brewers of late. In his last 15 games, he is hitting under .100 and has an OPS of under .600 for the season. He, much like the rest of the lineup, has underperformed this year.
Freddy Peralta is back on the mound for the Brewers Sunday. He has been pitching well for Milwaukee, ranking in the 95th percentile in both strikeout percentage and whiff percentage. His fastball is effective, but his off-speed pitches have been his bread and butter this season. Hitters are batting just .129 against Peralta’s slider this year, and he’s struck out 30 batters this year with that pitch.
Unlike Milwaukee, Cincinnati has been hitting the ball very well this season. Nick Castellanos has been the driving force behind an offense that ranks among the top five in several statistical categories this year.
The Reds right-fielder has a 1.036 OPS and has 11 home runs and 27 RBI. He got off to a hot start and has only progressed throughout the year. In Castellanos’ last 15 games, he’s hitting over .400 and has four home runs and 11 RBIs.
Luis Castillo has not performed to expectations this season. He has a strikeout percentage of just 24 and needs to get more bite to his sinker, as opponents have hit four home runs off of that pitch. Last season, Castillo went 1-1 against the Brewers and allowed two earned runs in 12.2 innings.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

Brewers are 1-6 in their last 7 overall.
Brewers are 1-6 in their last 7 games as a road favorite.
Brewers are 1-6 in their last 7 games on grass.
Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
The Reds should once again come through with a victory on Sunday despite the recent struggles from Castillo. The Reds are a far superior team offensively and will be able to put pressure on Peralta. The Reds are averaging over 5 runs a game while the Brewers are pushing across just over 3.5 runs a night. Even with the Brewers recent offensive struggles, I expect this game to go over and the Reds to prevail.
