The Cincinnati Reds (19-37) will try to avoid being swept by the Arizona Diamondbacks (28-26) today at 3:40 PM. The Diamondbacks had come into this series 2-15 in their last 17 games.
Sal Romano could be pitching to keep his spot in the rotation. Romano has a 13.28 ERA over his last three starts, walking 12 batters in 12.2 innings. His only career start against the Dbacks came last July, and it wasn’t pretty: 4.0 IP, 6 H, 6 ER, 5 BB, 3 K.
Patrick Corbin is having a brilliant season so far for the Diamondbacks. If you look through his game logs, you won’t find one poor start out of his 11 in 2018. Corbin has a 3.06 ERA in 8 career appearances (7 starts) against the Reds. He had a 2.03 ERA in 2 starts against the Reds last season.
