Both pitchers are pitching well but I like Soroka here. He's young but fearless and the Braves bats will be backing him up as Roark gets gassed as the game goes on and gives them some opportunities. I think the Braves steal another one away from the Reds tonight.80%

I like the Under for the FIRST 5. Roark has looked good for the Reds and Soroka is going to get a lot of K's on this Reds lineup that is 27th in the Majors in Runs scored in the first 5 innings.

Soroka has been solid but is still very young pitcher with only 30.2 career innings. Roark has allowed just two runs and struck out 10 batters in his last 10.2 innings. The Cincinnati Reds are the hotter team and have the much better pen. I like the hotter team, experienced pitcher at home for the plus money.70%

Red Reporter: Reds offense struggles again in 3-1 loss to Braves
This wasn't the best game he has pitched this season, and he mostly worked out of trouble all night, but Tanner Roark was able to limit damage and keep the Reds in a game where he was let down by the offense and a costly defensive miscue. Roark hasn't been as flashy as Luis Castillo or Sonny Gray, but he has kept runs off the board for the most part and given the Reds plenty of chances to win. That is all you can ask for when you acquire someone like Roark.
Cincinnati.com: Yasiel Puig's error proves costly in Cincinnati Reds' 3-1 loss to Atlanta Braves
No compatible source was found for this media.
Reacting to a shallow line drive to right field in the fifth inning Wednesday, Yasiel Puig kept his glove near the ground as he charged toward the ball. Once the ball hit the outfield grass, it skipped past Puig's glove and rolled all the way to the wall.
Talking Chop: Braves even series with Reds behind strong start from Soroka
The Braves defeated the Reds 3-1 on Wednesday behind Mike Soroka and a collection of Atlanta relievers, who bounced back from their uninspiring performance on on Tuesday. The offense was largely held quiet, but the Braves staff held the Reds down aside from a single first inning run against Soroka.
The Braves jumped out to a lead early. Really early, in fact, as leadoff man Ozzie Albies hit a home run on the very first pitch of the game to put Atlanta ahead 1-0. The hope for the Braves was that such a promising start would jumpstart a sound performance from the offense, but that proved to be one of only a couple highlights from the visiting team, but more on that in a moment.
Redleg Nation: Braves vs Reds - April 23, 2019
Did everyone enjoy the off day? Good. I spent it eating 27 jellybeans and two pieces of celery for dinner because I understand that balanced eating is just fuel for my workouts. Today I passed the morning driving around the city buying 50% off Easter candy. I'm not lying about this. I take my priorities and Fawn's dark chocolate covered Oreos very seriously. Started at Kroger's for a sheet cake and gum, hit up Fawn's, then made it to Supreme Candy and Nut. Also next Lent I'm giving up radioactive soil remediation instead of sugar.
In less important news, the Reds begin a three-game series against the Braves today.
Talking Chop: Braves, Soroka look to even series with Cincinnati
The Braves lost a hard-fought battle on Tuesday, narrowly missing on multiple opportunities at the plate while the bullpen struggled mightily to find the strike zone. Today they turn to Mike Soroka as they look to even the series, and hopefully improve upon the embarrassing performance by their pitching staff a night ago.
In his first outing of the season, which came last Thursday against the Diamondbacks, Mike Soroka looked every bit the part of a top prospect as he fired five innings allowing just one run on four hits with six strikeouts.
Fansided: Cincinnati Reds: 3 takeaways from the comeback win over the Braves
What a win for the Cincinnati Reds last night. This was as close to a "team win" as you'll probably see all season. The Reds got out to a 3-0 lead early last night against the Atlanta Braves, only to have that lead erased in the 6th inning. But, thanks to some timely hitting and quality pitching from the bullpen, the Reds overcame the deficit and walked out with the victory.
It looked like an easy victory early on, as Sonny Gray cruised through the first four innings of work. However, a leadoff triple by Dansby Swanson in the fifth inning helped put the Braves on the board and a 3-run effort from Atlanta in the sixth put the Reds in a 1-run hole heading into the bottom of the inning.
Fansided: Atlanta Braves: 3 Takeaways from Tuesday nights loss to the Reds
After an exciting end to the series in Cleveland, the Atlanta Braves looked to get a winning streak going as they faced the Reds on Tuesday evening. Kevin Gausman got the start for Atlanta and the Reds had Sonny Gray on the mound.
Gausman was fresh off of an excellent performance that saw him strike out 10 batters. The Braves hoped he could replicate something similar to get a 3 game winning streak going.
It looked early on like Sonny Gray was going to absolutely mow down the Braves and he did so for 5 innings.
Red Reporter: Reds slug out a good ol' good one with the Braves, win 7-6
It was a team effort, really. Yasiel Puig was 2-4 with a home run. Jose Peraza had a big clutch two-run double. Joey Votto was on base four times. Sonny Gray struck out nine. Robert Stephenson, David Hernandez, Amir Garrett, and Raisel Iglesias were all slicing up eyeballs.<strong>Key Plays</strong> The Reds did not mess around this evening. They got to Kevin Gausman right away as Jesse Winker poked a two-out single and Yasiel Puig followed that with a monstrous wally poppler into the second deck in left field.
Tucker Barnhart led off the top of the fourth with a nice wally poppler of his own.
Cincinnati.com: Bats come alive for the Cincinnati Reds in a 7-6 win over the Atlanta Braves
Maybe, just maybe, the bats are waking up for the Reds.
The 7-6, come-from-behind victory over the Atlanta Braves before a crowd of 12,789 at Great American Ball Park was one of the more stirring offensive efforts of the year.
The Reds sent 10 men to the plate and scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth after Atlanta took the lead in the top of the inning. The inning was built on good at-bats. Jose Peraza, who's been struggling as badly as any Red, delivered the big hit of the inning, a two-run double.
Yasiel Puig and Tucker Barnhart homered earlier in the game.
Braves Journal: Badda-Bing Badda-Boom: Braves 6 - Reds 7
Going into GABP, I thought that we were in for it with our pitching staff and the Reds hitters. But I looked at the Reds hitting numbers and thought that maybe we could get'm while they're down. Then I looked at Sonny Gray's pitching stats and thought... why, again, didn't we trade for this guy???
So the game starts and I can't watch cuz I'm not home yet. But I look up the stats and Sonny has gone to war. And, badda-bing badda-boom, Sonny KO'd 9 Braves by the fifth inning. The only ray of hope was a Dansby triple that got the Braves a run in the fifth.
