If Tyler Mahle wants to snag his first win of the season, he’s going to have to bring his A-game to Great American Ball Park this afternoon. Today’s tilt between the Cincinnati Reds and the Los Angeles Dodgers will be no picnic for the right-hander.
Hopefully, the Cincinnati Reds’ bats wake up and give Mahle some run support. The Reds’ one-run losses this season have been well-documented, but few have suffered more than Tyler Mahle. The Reds have lost 13-of-20 one-run games and Mahle has started 3 of those 13 losses. He was also on the hill for the Reds’ 2-1 victory over the Miami Marlins, but was not the pitcher of record.
