For those who were waiting for my predictions to come for the third game of the series, I’m sorry. For personal blogging, I actually have a real-world job, since the Reds did not release their lineup till 4:53 PM, I clocked in for the night. Here were the predictions and here are the results from tonight’s pitching matchup.
Mike Leake: 5 IP, 10 hits, 2 doubles, 3 home runs, 9 runs, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts and hit-by-pitch
John Lannan: 5 IP, 9 hits, 4 runs, 3 walks, and 3 strikeouts
Mike Leake: 7 IP (40%), 3 hits (70%), 2 doubles (Perfect), 7 strikeouts (250%) and hit-by-pitch (Perfect)
John Lannan: 1 2/3 IP (-66.67%) , 8 hits (11.11%), 6 runs (-50%) and 1 walk (66.67%)
This series sweep will help the Reds improve on some spots in the Sportsnut Dumais MLB ranking, next for the Reds are the low and depleted Miami Marlins.
