Brewers at Reds: Projected starting pitchers
RHP Jordan Lyles vs. RHP Tyler Mahle.
Lyles enters Wednesday with a 2.35 ERA through 10 starts with the Brewers. The team has gone 9-1 over those 10 starts. He owns an overall ERA of 3.94 in the second half including his few remaining starts from what was a disastrous tenure with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He has a 4.43 ERA as the road starter with either team. Last outing: Lyles gave up just one solo homer over 4 2/3 innings while striking out nine with three walks against the San Diego Padres.
Mahle continues auditioning for a rotation spot in 2020. He owns a 6.37 second-half ERA, mostly due to a poor stretch in July. His strikeout rate has dropped from 9.62 batters per nine innings in the first half to 7.28 in the second, but his walk and home run rates have also dropped considerably. Last outing: Mahle gave up two walks, one hit and one earned run over a six-inning quality start against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
