(LIVE TV###) San Francisco Giants v Cincinnati Reds live match 20/07/2023
A San Fran SurgeWalking into Cincinnati this week, the Giants had a five-game winning streak. By the end of Tuesday night, the goal is for it to reach seven. Pitching has been at the forefront of the streak, which has San Francisco only a pair of games out of first place in the NL West. They only gave up 12 total runs during the winning streak, an impressive stretch that Ross Stripling will try to extend. Stripling hasn't had the best season, With a 6. 11 ERA and 5. 74 FIP after 45.
How they succeed makes them prone to extreme streaks. When they're hot, it's incredible and when they're not, things can be rough. Cincinnati's generous dimensions may help them throughout the week. Reds Feeling BlueThe captivating stretch that catapulted Cincinnati into first place has given way to a losing streak.
2 innings pitched at home. Still, Ashcraft owns a 7. 16 ERA in Great American Ball Park after 10 starts. There's evidence to suggest he's turned a corner across his last three starts. It can also be argued that he's overdue for another stinker at home. If the offense stays cold, this game won't be close. Best Bets for this Game Full-Game Side Bet Insiders Status: Rating: Ross Stripling doesn't pitch deep into games and doesn't have the best stuff. Cincinnati desperately needs a comeback at the plate.
San Francisco Giants vs. Cincinnati Reds Prediction, Preview, and Odds - 7-19-2023Well, this series got started on Monday, but round one between the San Francisco Giants (52-41) and Cincinnati Reds (50-44) was suspended in the eighth inning. So, Tuesday will provide two results (weather pending) before this Wednesday's battle of the four-game series. Both sides are fighting for an NL wild-card spot at least and hopefully, their division crown, meaning that these games are very significant. If everything is back on track, the third game of the week will start at 7:10 p. m. EDT. Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park will play host in front of a lively crowd.
This is the perfect opportunity at home. The Reds' Graham Ashcraft has had his problems at home, but holding his last three opponents to one run each is a great sign. Let's make it four against a Giants offense also having issues in July. Cincinnati gives the home fans something to cheer for when they win again. Take the Reds with the money line. Prediction: Cincinnati Reds +105 Full-Game Total Pick Neither starting pitcher has encouraging numbers. Cincinnati's home park is great for run-scoring. The bullpens are solid, but not exactly shut-down units. This game will finish under the total anyway.
Nobody has stolen more bases and only three times walk at a higher rate. Still, they're struggling to manufacture anything right now, and it happened at the worst possible time. Pitching has never been the Reds' strong suit, even though July has been their best month on the mound this season. Unfortunately, Graham Ashcraft probably isn't the man who's going to save this team if they can't score, especially not at home. He's allowed only two runs over his last 12.
2 innings. He's bounced between the rotation and the bullpen, never tossing more than 5. 0 innings in an appearance. Stripling has been sharper since returning in late June, allowing five runs over 13. 1 innings. However, the Giants have only won in three of his 13 outings this season. Everyone say 'bang' 350 times. @JoeyVotto pic. twitter. com/N1nBYx58D7— Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) July 19, 2023 Surprisingly, the Giants' offense has struggled in July, only outscoring one team on a per-game basis. Still, they began the series 13th in runs per game during the 2023 season at a 4. 66 clip. Ranking ninth in walk rate and 13th in homers (despite a massive home park), those are two true outcomes that typically win the Giants ballgames. With a strikeout rate that's 26th and the third-fewest stolen bases, there's not much small ball going on in San Francisco.
With a 1-5 stretch entering this series, all to the now-NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers, the Reds need to recapture the spark that has them fighting for October. A great place to start would be the ice-cold offense, which was shut out in three consecutive games against the Brewers. They finally scored on Sunday, three times, and only mustered two runs before play was suspended deep into Monday's game. They're ninth in runs per game this season, thanks to a hitter-friendly home and elite speed.
Neither one of these dugouts is swinging the bat well right now. The Giants have the 29th-ranked runs-per-game average this month. The Reds scored three total runs during their four-game losing streak that greeted this series. Through eight innings on Monday, the game was tied 2-2. Fade the bats and take the under.
