July 24, 2020 | 2:01pm
Short season. Teams that would otherwise be on the outside looking in are in it to win it this year. The Cincinnati Reds are one of those teams. If Sonny Gray, Luis Castillo, Trevor Bauer and Wade Miley pitch to expectations, they could make this a Red October. Gray, a former Yankee, gets the ball this evening in the opener against the visiting Tigers. He went 8-3, ERA 1.99 in the second half of 2019. Detroit counters with Matthew Boyd. Pitching for a bad team he went 9-12, ERA 4.56, but averaged 11.56 strikeouts over nine innings. Taking the Reds for 20 units.
Gerrit Cole allowed one hit, a home run to Adam Eaton. Max Scherzer was touched for six hits, walked four and watched Giancarlo Stanton’s screamer leave in a hurry. Yanks won a rain-shortened opener 4-1. Up a quick 100 pepitones.
