If things weren’t bad enough for the Reds, they’ll get to see one of the best pitchers in baseball on Saturday.
Felix Hernandez goes for the Mariners as he opposes the struggling Jake Lamb here in Game 2.
The Mariners look to continue their hot road trip as they continue their series with the Reds on Saturday.
Seattle has been an American League best 15-7 on the road and come into this series on a good note as they took 2 of 3 against the Orioles last series. They’ll send out their ace here as they attempt to take Saturday’s matinee.
Felix Hernandez has been dominant this season, despite his 3-3 record. Hernandez sits with an ERA of just 2.47 on the season. He was a tough luck loser last time out as he allowed 3 runs on 7 hits in 7.1 innings of work against the Angels.
However, the offense went ice cold, which has been a rare occasion. On the season, the Mariners have averaged 4.60 runs per game. Nelson Cruz and Robinson Cano anchor the middle of the lineup and have set the tone for everybody else.
The Reds starting rotation and bullpen have been about as bad as you can get this year.
Despite losing 2 games inside Great American Ballpark to the Indians this week, the Reds have played a majority of their best baseball here. They are 12-12 on the season, which accounts for all but 3 of their wins on the year.
Despite allowing 5.46 runs per game, their offense has been able to keep them in a majority of the games played. The Reds have averaged 4.62 runs per game, which is led by Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips. Joey Votto did homer in Thursday’s loss, but his average sits well below what the Reds need him to be at.
Cincinnati will send out John Lamb here, who was roughed up against the Indians in the series opener. Lamb managed just 4.0 innings of work, allowing 10 hits on 7 runs. Lamb left a lot of pitches up in the zone and fell behind a lot of hitters, which is just asking for trouble. He’ll certainly have to be very careful with this lineup,as they remain hot.
