On Sunday afternoon, Mike Leake will be hoping to end his two-game losing streak when the Cincinnati Reds face Marco Estrada and the Milwaukee Brewers.
Right-hander Mike Leake ended up taking his sixth loss of the season when he was beaten by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday. He went 5.1 innings in that start and allowed five runs on nine hits while striking out seven and walking one. Leake now has a 3.61 on the campaign and has only given up eight home runs in 87.1 innings.
Veteran third baseman Aramis Ramirez has just a .111 batting average in 27 at-bats against Leake with four strikeouts. Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks is 5-for-12 against him in his career with a double, a triple and two home runs.
In his last start, Marco Estrada was beaten by the New York Mets on the road when he gave up six runs in six innings of work. He allowed just four hits in that game and struck out five, but he also walked four an gave up two home runs. Estrada has a 5-3 record this year and has struck out 71 in 79 innings, but he has also already given up 20 home runs.
Estrada definitely does not like facing Reds outfielder Jay Bruce, who is 7-for-19 against him in their matchups with a double, four home runs and eight RBI.
