Taking the mound Tuesday in Cincinnati for the Reds will be Mike Leake, and for the Padres Andrew Cashner. Both have had their share of success early on in the 2014 season. San Diego is coming off an impressive revival of their bats in taking the series over the Miami Marlins. That series was at home. Things may be turn back to their old ways for the Padres bats in Cincinnati.

Mike Leake on the other hand has had good outings spoiled. He has had a penchant for giving up home runs beyond the fourth inning. It’s something he has to control if the Reds are going to be able to rely on him as an ace pitcher.

That shouldn’t be a problem tonight against a Padres lineup that doesn’t scare many pitchers. Look for this to be a low scoring game. Take the under on 7.5 runs. This likely will get to 7 before the game starts. If you’re looking for money value wait for that line move, as I don’t believe more than four runs will be scored here tonight.
