Pitching Matchup

The Dodgers are sending right-hander Walker Buehler (1-1, 5.05 ERA) to the mound today. He is coming off his best start of the season against this same Reds team last week. Buehler posted six shutout innings, only allowing three hits, and striking out seven batters. Cincinnati is throwing out flame-thrower Hunter Greene (2-2, 3.22 ERA), who did well against Los Angeles in his last start. He posted 6.1 innings, allowing two runs, and striking out eight hitters.


The Dodgers are coming off a strange game against the Reds last night where they held a 5-3 lead at one point. With Buehler on the mound, Los Angeles has to feel good about their chances tonight. He will need to be careful pitching in a very hitter-friendly ballpark but he seems to be getting into more of a groove as he works his way fully back. Buehler leads Los Angeles to a needed victory to stop the bleeding.

Dodgers 5, Reds 4


• This will be Buehler’s eighth career start against the Reds. He is 2-3 with an ERA of 2.76 in his career.

• Buehler has never won at Great American Ball Park, going 0-2 with an ERA of 3.00 in 12 innings pitched.

• The Los Angeles bullpen has posted a Major League-best 2.22 ERA over the last 30 games.

• In the loss last night, Shohei Ohtanu was 0-for-5. It was his first game with at least five at-bats without registering a hit this season.
