Cincinnati Reds (22-27) at Philadelphia Phillies (19-33)
PHI: Sean O’Sullivan, RHP (1-4, 4.81)
CIN: Johnny Cueto, RHP (3-4, 3.03)
A Note for Tonight:
The 20th win of the season has been avoiding the Phillies for 7 straight games now spanning all the way back to the last win against the Natinals on May 23rd. The Phillies will look to turn the losing streak around against an ailing Johnny Cueto, who is pitching for the Reds tonight after being day-to-day on the DL with an elbow issue.
Sean O’Sullivan will get his 7th start of the season against a team in last place for hits in the MLB. O’Sullivan has a 4.81 ERA over his last 6 games, pitching 33.2 innings, and giving up 18 runs. He gave up 11 hits and 7 earned runs in his last game on May 27th versus the Mets.
The Phillies have moved their way to 23rd in hits for the season, after being the last team to 100 hits earlier in the year. The Phillies are also 5th in triples for the year and only one triple away from being tied with 2nd. The Reds have a league leading 49 stolen bases on the year so far, with the Phillies at 21st, so fielders will be on their toes for this game.
Start of the series at 7:05 EST.
