The Cincinnati Reds (56-70) will play the rubber game of a three-game series at Miller Park today at 2:10 PM against the Milwaukee Brewers (70-58). The Reds won a wild game last night, 9-7, lead by a 9th inning home run by Scooter Gennett.
Robert StephensonÃ‚Â is running out of chances with the Reds. He has walked 9 batters in 5.2 innings through his first two starts of 2018. Stephenson’s only career start against the Brewers came last September, and he was good minus, you guessed it, the walks: 6.0 IP 4 H, 1 R, 5 BB, 7 K.
The 22-year oldÃ‚Â Freddy PeraltaÃ‚Â is having a great rookie year for the Brewers. His ERA would look a lot better if not for two starts where he allowed a combined 14 earned runs. He was only the Brewers 10th best prospect entering 2018. The Brewers acquired Peralta from the Mariners for Adam Lind back in 2015. Peralta’s only career start against the Reds came on July 1st: 5.0 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K.
