Free San Diego Padres vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
This series ought to be interesting with both of these teams looking to find some confidence in playing the game. I’m taking the Reds in this one at home.
It seems the Lamb will bounce back after the good start he had against the Astros.
Look for him to control this Padres lineup and the middle of this Reds lineup will be able to take control of this game and Friedrich will struggle in this one.
