Reds at Indians – July 24, 2017

The Cincinnati Reds (41-57) kickoff a 10-game road trip with a single game in Cleveland (51-45) to make up for the May 25th rain out. The Reds still wish the division race was still as close today as it was when these two teams last met. At that time, the Reds were in 4th place but at 22-24 just three games out of first place. Today the Reds find themselves in last place and 10.5 games behind the Chicago Cubs, who just won eight of their last ten.

The Cleveland Indians dropped two of three against Cincinnati in May and were 2nd in their division when tonight’s game was originally scheduled to take place. They currently hold a 1.5 game division lead over the Kansas City Royals and have been in the top spot every day since June 26th.

STARTING PITCHERS

PITCHER ERA FIP HR/9 BB% K%
Tim Adleman 4.96 5.62 2.1 8.9% 21.8%
Josh Tomlin 5.74 4.28 1.5 2.6% 17.6%

After five straight starts of five innings or less, Tim Adleman went six innings (3 runs, 0 walks, 7 strikeouts) last week against Arizona. He allowed another homerun in that game, which pushed his homerun allowed streak to 10 consecutive games. He’s allowed 15 homers in 54.1 innings over those 10 games.

Cleveland’s Josh Tomlin is also prone to the longball, although his exceptionally low walk rate helps limit the damage. Tomlin had a streak similar to Adleman’s end on July 1. His last two starts have been seven innings each with no homeruns allowed, zero walks, 10 hits and 11 strikeouts. He did pitch against Cincinnati earlier this season, allowing five runs in 6.1 innings.

CONCLUDING THOUGHTS
The Reds offense came through in a win yesterday afternoon, and I feel like they’re going to need that kind of output again tonight to give Adleman some room to work.

GO REDS!

  1. Va Red your posts are hilarious.I laughed so hard at the Pete comment and the blow out comment the wife had to come and see if I was ok.

  2. In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.

    The Reds are doing NOTHING this year. Price doesn’t manage to win and they’re not pushing the rebuild either?
