Reds vs Guardians


The Cincinnati Reds are starting to show signs of life after dropping to a 3-22 start.

The Reds are currently 19th in the league in terms of scoring. They're also 27th in terms of home runs. Brandon Drury is the team's third baseman and leads the team with seven home runs and 22 RBI. Tyler Stephenson is the team's catcher and has a .324 batting average.

The team's pitching has been very poor, as they're currently last in the league with a 6.04 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP. Tyler Mahle has been one of the team's most consistent pitchers, but he's also been a major factor in the team's struggles with a 5.89 ERA.


The Guardians' season-high losing streak was seven games from April 22 to April 28. Since then, the Guardians have been able to win nine out of 14 games. On Sunday, they lost to the Minnesota Wild, but they're still in third place in the AL Central.

The Guardians are currently third in the league in terms of batting average and are 19th in the home runs department. One of the team's most prominent players is Jose Ramirez, who leads the league with 33 RBIs. He's also the leading hitter for the Guardians with eight home runs.

The team's pitching has been mediocre, as they're currently last in the league with a 4.18 ERA. Despite this, the fielders have been solid, as they're currently saving more than 15 runs. On Wednesday, Cal Quantrill will start for the Guardians. He's only faced the Reds once before, and he suffered a loss with a 5.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP.
