Big Red Machine Continues To Roll Cincinnati vs Houston

Cincinnati Reds NLC Leaders: No Votto – No Problem

Many Reds fans felt they had been kicked in the heart when All-Star first basemen Joey Votto went down with a knee injury and was placed on the DL on July 17. While it’s tough the get along without a .324 hitter,  Cincinnati hasn’t missed a beat without their Canadian stud in the lineup. The Big Red Machine continues to roll as they are 6-2 post Votto injury (he will be back mid-August or so) and have a 1.5 game lead over the Pirates in the NL Central. Cincy starter Mike Leake (3-6 4.25 ERA) is better than his stat line indicates.

Houston Astros: Chalk Up Another Lost Season At Minute Maid Park

Being a fan of the big four Detroit sports teams my entire life – yours truly has had to cheer for some pretty bad teams. That said, I still can’t relate to what the fans in Houston are dealing with lately when it comes to their Astros. After posting a 56-106 record in 2011, the ‘Stros are on pace to set another new watermark low as they are 34-63 so far this season. Houston is 2-20 since June 28, and 1-9 since the All-Star break – with seven straight loses. Lucas Harrell (7-7 4.24 ERA) heads to hill as the Astros look to end their slide.

One has to wonder when Houston will really pack it in. Baseball is weird that way however as even a blind squirrel finds a nut from time to time. With the Pittsburgh Pirates hot on their tail, saw off the pitching match-up as even and take the team that this game means more to. We were surprised by the 1.71 Money Line price in the sportsbook at SportsInteraction.com and will roll with the Big Red Machine during MLB action tonight!
