The Cincinnati Reds and San Diego Padres will continue a three-game series when they meet again at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati on Tuesday night.
The Padres have won three straight games, all on the road, and they are one win shy of matching a season high for consecutive victories away from home. First baseman Eric Hosmer went 0-for-4, snapping a seven-game hitting streak during which he was 13-for-29 with a home run, four RBIs, and five runs scored.
Rookie right-hander Cal Quantrill (6-3, 3.23 ERA) is taking the mound for San Diego on Tuesday after going 4-1 with a 1.31 ERA in his last six games (five starts). Quantrill allowed two runs and three hits with four strikeouts in 5.1 innings while throwing a career-high 108 pitches in Wednesday’s 7-2 victory over Tampa Bay. The 24-year-old Canadian has lost just once in his last 14 outings (nine starts), lowing his ERA by 2.17.
