Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Cincinnati Reds, the series continues with game two at home of the Dodgers, the first game was a victory for the Reds 4-1, the home team had problems with the defense and Walker Buehler made a terrible job from the mound. The season for the Reds on the road has been bad, they have barely begun to recover after long losing streaks.
Los Angeles Dodgers: Almost nobody can beat us at home.
At home the Dodgers started losing the first two games of the 2018 season, something unusual for a team that is used to winning all home games, but the games were against the Giants and they have always been a difficult team for the Dodgers, That series was 4 games and finished in a 2-2 draw.
Kenta Maeda (starting pitcher tonight) has only won 1 game at home and lost another against the Diamondbacks. The Dodgers are allowing an average of 4.00 runs at home, 8.33 hits and up to 1.28 home runs. Obviously the Dodgers’ defense is not calibrated, so far at home they have won 8 games and lost 10.
Home ERA is at 44.4%, one of the worst in recent years for the Dodgers at this stage of the season, but for now they have managed to stay above 44% which is an indicator that they are working on improving the defense.
Cincinnati Reds: The games on the road are a nightmare.
The Reds have lost 12 games on the road, could barely win 5 so far this season and had not won a series on the road until the end of April. The team lost the first two games on the road against the Pirates in a series of 4 games, 2 losing streaks, one of 4 games and another of 5 games.
Cincinnati Reds is scoring an average of 3.88 runs per game on the road, batters suffer up to 7.76 strikes and home runs are below 0.53 per game, have almost no offense, defensive problems are more dangerous than normal.
Dodgers can easily win the second of this series, at home the Dodgers have always been a lethal team with many tools to hit the ball and score runs. Kenta Maeda will surely have a good performance to improve her record in the season.
