The Great American Ball Park will play host to an interleague clash between the Cleveland Indians and the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. Last night, Cleveland was unable to hold onto an early two-run lead during a 3-2 road loss against Cincinnati. SS Francisco Lindor connected on his third home run for the Indians (5-6), who have dropped four straight.

Twenty-five year old righty Shane Bieber (2-0 0.00 ERA) has emerged as the ace of the Cleveland staff. Through his first two starts, Bieber has allowed just seven hits and struck out an astonishing 27 batters across 14 frames.

The Cincinnati Reds have won three straight games and are expected to contend in the NL Central Division this season. On Monday, OF Nick Castellanos crushed his fifth home run of the season and 1B Joey Votto’s sixth-inning two-run shot put Cincinnati ahead for good. SP Sonny Gray struck out eight batters in six innings to improve to 3-0 for the Reds (5-5).

Twenty-five year old righty Tyler Mahle (0-0 4.50 ERA) will get the nod for the Reds in this matchup. In his first start, Mahle allowed six hits and two hits in four innings of an 8-5 home loss versus Chicago.
