The Cincinnati Reds and Baltimore Orioles will get together one final time this afternoon and the winner of this afternoon’s game will take the series after the two teams split the first two games. Cincinnati will look to rookie left-hander Nick Lodolo to the mound while the Orioles will send Austin Voth out there to try and fend off the Reds hitters.
Here are the lineups for this afternoon’s contest:
|Trey Mancini – RF||Jonathan India – 2B|
|Adley Rutschman – DH||Donovan Solano – 3B|
|Anthony Santander – LF||Tommy Pham – LF|
|Austin Hays – CF||Joey Votto – DH|
|Ramon Urias – 2B||Mike Moustakas – 1B|
|Ryan Mountcastle – 1B||Kyle Farmer – SS|

|Robinson Chirinos – C||Michael Papierski – C|
|Austin Voth – SP||Nick Lodolo – SP|

The splits for Lodolo are pretty extreme. Left-handed hitters have not been given many chances to face him, but when they do they have had just a .570 OPS against him. Right-handed hitters, though, are hitting .322/.405/.504 against him – numbers that could put a hitter into MVP conversation.
There are some splits for Austin Voth, but both lefties and righties are hitting well against him. Lefties are drawing fewer walks against him, but they are also hitting .324 against him with a solid amount of power. Righties are drawing more walks and making slightly more contact, but are hitting for a little less power while hitting nearly .300 against him.
