Philadelphia and Cincinnati are two teams who have absolutely no expectations this season.
With both teams projected to be bad, this Opening Week series gives both teams a chance to gain some early momentum.
It was the Reds who stole the first bit of momentum after routing the Phillies in their Home Opener. Cincinnati tallied just 6 hits, but made every bit of them count as they held off Philadelphia 6-2.
Things got off a slow for Cincinnati as they had just one unearned run through 7 innings, before the offense took off for 5 runs in the 8th to pull away for a win. SS Zack Cozart was the main man behind the offense as he had 3 of the 6 hits.
Cincinnati, who has a lot of questions surrounding their rotation, will send out Brandon Finnegan on Wednesday. Finnegan split last year between Kansas City and Cincinnati after the Johnny Cueto trade. He has been a reliever for a majority of his career, but has no converted to a starter.
When it comes to expectations, Philadelphia has none whatsoever. In fact, after their loss, social media took a few jabs at them saying they’ve already been eliminated from Playoff contention.
Errors have been a big problem for the rebuilding Phillies over the recent seasons. They finished 2nd in the NL last year with 177 and they picked up right where they left off. Phili recorded 2 errors, 1 of which resulted in an unearned run.
They’ll send out Aaron Nola, who had a stellar rookie season. Nola finished 6-2 with an ERA of 3.59 last year as he made 13 starts. He did not face the Reds last year.
