The Cincinnati Reds are not exactly a team you think of when you mention the word ‘dangerous,’ but Dan Straily has been just that. The righty has a 2.13 ERA while allowing opponents to hit just .209 in his six starts since the All-Star break – which have all been wins for the Reds. Cincy and Straily close out their series with the Miami Marlins Thursday.
- Christian Yelich went 2-for-2 with a solo home run in his only plate appearances against Dan Straily.
- The OVER is 5-1 in the Reds’ past six games.
- The Marlins are 8-3 in their past 11 road games coming off a road loss.
Jose Fernandez will take the bump with plenty of rest, as the Marlins’ ace skipped his last start to help limit his workload. Fernandez went seven innings without allowing a single earned run in his first outing against the Reds this season.
The Marlins have traditionally had the Reds’ number, as Miami has won eight of the past 10 meetings between the two teams. However, the Reds have won the past two games between the clubs while outscoring the Marlins 9-5.
