Cincinnati vs San Francisco Probable Pitchers

Veteran Giants right-hander Alex Cobb’s underlying numbers are suggesting his season is better than the most prevalent digits might be indicating. A two-start stretch in May in which he allowed 20 hits and 13 earned runs over 11.1 innings pitched ballooned his ERA from a respectable 3.98 to 6.25.

He went on the IL with a neck strain in early in June. Over his last two starts. Cobb has allowed four earned runs and eight hits across a 10-inning span. The first of those two games was a May 29 six-inning stint against the Reds. He didn’t figure in the decision of a 6-4 Giants victory.

Cobb is 2-2 with a 4.91 ERA in five home starts. He’s 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA in three career starts against Cincinnati.

For the most part, there’s been little to complain about since rookie right-hander Graham Ashcraft was summoned from Triple-A by the Reds. He’s showing a .750 winning percentage (3-1) for a team that is showing an NL-worst .333 winning percentage on the season. In fact, the Reds are 5-1 in Ashcraft’s six starts.

There are some red flags of late that suggest perhaps MLB clubs are beginning to get a book on Ashcraft’s tendencies. In his last two starts he’s 0-1. Ashcraft has surrendered 17 hits and 10 earned runs over 9.2 innings pitched during that span. Ashcraft’s ERA has jumped from a season-low 3.32 to a season-high 3.88 over his last two trips to the mound.

He’s 0-0 with a 6.00 ERA in two career road starts. Ashcraft’s first big-league win was against San Francisco. He pitched 6.1 scoreless innings May 27 in a 5-1 win over the Giants.

Reds vs Giants Prediction

The Giants are getting their second look at Ashcraft. That should be helpful now that they have a book on the rookie.

Cobb’s analytics are better than his win-loss mark and ERA. Plus, he’s never lost to the Reds and San Francisco is playing solid ball at home.

Pick: San Francisco Giants ML (-185)
