AAA's 3-GM WEDNESDAY ALL EARLY MLB PASS
Minnesota vs. Cincinnati,
07/01/2015 12:35 EDT,
Score: 1 - 2
Money Line: -176 Cincinnati
This is a 6* play on the Cincinnati Reds.
The visitors send Trevor May (4-6, 4.62 ERA) to the hill, the 25 year old was shelled for six runs off five hits over 1/3 of an inning vs. the Brewers on Friday. Unfortunately a date on the road is not what the doctor ordered to get back on track as May is already a poor 2-3 with a ballooned 6.41 ERA away from friendly confines. The home side counters with Johnny Cueto (4-5, 2.98 ERA) who is coming off a gem in which he gave up two runs on two hits while striking out six over six innings in a victory over the Mets on Friday; note that Cueto has been particularly sharp in this position all year, posting a highly respectable 2.98 ERA in all "day" games and a 2-1, 1.74 ERA in front of the home town crowd. No need to overanalyze this one in my opinion, sometimes a favorite is a favorite for a reason and in this case, I absolutely feel that Cueto and the REDS should be much larger ones, great line value when taking into account the large talent discrepancy on the mound.
