Indians Vs. Reds Preview: Cleveland Looking For Revenge In Game Two

The Cleveland Indians haven't won two-straight games since taking two from the AL Central rival Detroit Tigers on June 5 and June 6. They've no chance in doing it in game two against the Cincinnati Reds as they fell in game one by a score of 7-1. It was a poor performance all around, and the Indians will try and get back in the driver's seat with a win on Wednesday.

Joey Votto had three runs batted in, including a two-run homerun in the seventh inning of game one that started the bleeding, as the Reds piled on another three runs in the eighth inning, including a single to left field by Votto that scored C Heisey.

Game two will see Mat Latos take the mound for Cincinnati as they try and go up two games in the series. He's 4-2 with a 4.85 earned run average. His last outing was a no-decision after pitching just-over six innings with three runs earned. Derek Lowe will pitch for Cleveland to counter, but he's coming off a much tougher outing.

He went five innings in a loss - also against the Tigers - and was shelled for seven runs on June 7. He's 7-4 on the season with a 3.72 ERA. Cleveland had previously won six-straight games against the Reds prior to the loss in game one.
