The starting pitching situation seems like one in which there could be limited runs and deep appearances, a scenario in which we can even discount a solid bullpen performance for either team. 

That being said, the recent OVER trend for the Reds-Giants meetings in 2019 scare us.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Reds RH Tyler Mahle (0-5, 3.69 ERA) vs. Giants LH Madison Bumgarner (2-4, 3.99)

Mahle has given up fewer than two runs in four of his seven starts this season, including each of his last two, but still is without a victory. The 24-year-old Californian, who will be making his sixth consecutive road start and seventh overall this year, suffered the loss at Oakland on Tuesday despite allowing one run and four hits with one walk and eight strikeouts over five innings. Mahle lost his lone career start versus the Giants on May 15, 2018 in San Francisco, where he surrendered four runs and seven hits in 3 1/3 frames.

Bumgarner could be making one of his final starts for the Giants as the free-agent-to-be reportedly submitted a no-trade list to management that includes eight teams. The 29-year-old native of North Carolina is coming off a victory at Colorado on Tuesday in which he allowed three runs and eight hits over six innings. A former World Series MVP, Bumgarner is 3-5 with one shutout and a 4.21 ERA in nine career starts against Cincinnati.
