Game preview (8/10/16): Anthony DeScalfani looks to stay consistent

Overview: Anthony DeSclafani looks to remain consistent, while Alfredo Simon and Ian Kahaloa look to bounce back. Jonathan Crawford will make his second non-rehab start of the season with Daytona.


Cincinnati at St. Louis, 8:15 p.m. EST

Starting pitcher: Anthony DeSclafani (6-0, 2.94 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 58 K, 16 BB)

Notes: Anthony DeScalfani, who has been the Reds most consistent starter all season, will look to win the series in his fourth road start in a row at St. Louis. DeScalfani has allowed over three runs just twice in his 11 2016 starts, and those were his only non-quality start of the campaign. In fact, it was the only time that he also failed to go at least six innings. DeScalafani has gone six innings in each of his last two starts, allowing just six hits and three runs total in those two games.


Louisville at Charlotte, 7:05 p.m. EST

Starting pitcher: Alfredo Simon (0-1, 9.00 ERA, 3.00 WHIP, 1 K, 0 BB)

Notes: Alfredo Simon will make his second rehab start with Louisville. In the first, he worked one inning, and allowed a hit and a run. It would be Daniel Wright’s turn in the rotation, so it is possible that he follows Simon.



Pensacola is off on Wednesday night and return to action on Thursday.


Dunedin at Daytona, 5:05 p.m. EST

Game one Starting pitcher: Jonathan Crawford (1-0, 0.00 ERA, 0.60 WHIP, 3 K, 1 BB)

Game two starting pitcher: TBD

Notes: Crawford has seen very little but injuries since he was traded to the Reds, but saw success in his first non-rehab start of the season last time out. In his last start, Crawford allowed just two hits in five shutout innings, while striking out three.



Dayton is off on Wednesday night and returns to action on Thursday.


Idaho Falls at Billings, 9:05 p.m. EST

Starting pitcher: Ian Kahaloa (1-1, 3.08 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, 26 K, 7 BB)

Notes: Kahaloa makes his seventh start of the season with Billings on Wednesday night. After allowing 13 hits and four runs in two starts and 8.2 innings, Kahaloa returned to form, before struggling again in his last start. On July 30, he worked 5.1 and allowed three hits and two runs. In his last start, he worked 3.2 innings, allowing four hits and three runs.


AZL Brewers at AZL Reds, 9 p.m. EST

Starting pitcher: TBD
