MLB Pick of the Day Record: 4-5 -176
Fielding is one of the main ingredients for the Cincinnati Reds’ winning record this season. As proof the big Red Machine as the Reds have the number 1 ranked fielding percentage at .988 in all of Major League Baseball and the fewest in errors with 26 of any team in the entire league. Despite a team ranking 26th in the entire league, the Reds have 5 players who have a batting average of .250 or better and 3 of them are hamming the ball well over .265.
The lineup for the Cincinnati Reds will be slated to face the Los Angeles Dodger’s right hand starter Dan Haren. Haren’s last victory was on May 12th against the Miami Marlins where he gave up 3 earned runs on 7 hits. Since that start, the righty has gone winless in his last 4 outings allowing 13 earned runs on 30 hits in 24 frames of labor.
In their last 10 games, the Los Angeles Dodgers are 3 and 7 only averaging just 3.9 runs a game and that average is skew by a 12 run output on May 31st versus the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Dodgers will be facing the Left Hand starter Tony Cingrani who is having a tough season so far with a 2 and 6 record surrendering 25 earned runs on 53 hits along with 28 walks in 55 innings.
