Houston Astros vs Cincinnati Reds MLB Game Day Prediction
It doesn’t get any more worst versus first than the Houston Astros vs. Cincinnati Reds contest that opens a three game set for the NL Central leading Reds. First pitch flies at 7:10 PM EDT on Friday, September 7, 2012, from the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Cincinnati Reds: Roll on in the National League Central
Despite a couple of minor stumbles recently, the Cincinnati Reds are rolling along in the National League Central Division as they lead the St. Louis Cardinals by 8.5 games with 24 to play. Barring a Boston Red Sox type collapse circa 2010, the Reds will cruise into the 2012 MLB playoffs as one of the teams to beat. After he missed 50 games to injury, Cincinnati welcomed back All Star first baseman Joey Votto who went 2-for-3 with two singles and a walk on Wednesday. That is not good news for the rest of the National League.
Houston Astros: How low will they go during the MLB 2012 season?
Sitting with a 42-95 record, the Houston Astros are the worst team in the Majors. It’s not even close as their nearest “competitors” Colorado and Minnesota are both sporting 56-79 records. In case you’re wondering, the Astros aren’t any in danger of setting a modern day MLB record for losses in a single season. That dubious distinction belongs to the Detroit Tigers who went 43-119 in 2003. That said, we don’t see the ‘Stros going on a run over their last 25 games. This is especially true against the Big Red Machine this weekend.
