The Boston Red Sox and the Cincinnati Reds will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at Great American Ball Park in an interleague contest.

The Red Sox will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Rick Porcello in this game. Porcello has a 10-17 record and a 4.46 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Reds will be Sal Romano. The right hander has a 4.07 ERA to go along with a 5-6 record this season.

Porcello answered his recent 1-3 stretch with a sterling outing on Saturday, allowing an unearned run on five hits in 7 1/3 innings of a 3-1 victory over Tampa Bay. The 2016 AL Cy Young Award winner has kept the ball in the park in each of his last two outings after surrendering three homers in his previous tilt and 35 overall this season. Porcello has limited experience against the current roster of the Reds, with Joey Votto going 3-for-3 with a homer.

Romano improved to 3-1 in his last six outings on Saturday after scattering five hits and striking out six in a career-high eight scoreless innings of a 2-1 victory versus Pittsburgh. The 23-year-old rookie settled down after a 38-pitch first inning to subdue the Pirates. “I felt like I got into a good rhythm,” Romano said. “Good fastball command. I through my curveball for strikes. Changeup has been good for me.”

Oddsmakers opened the Red Sox as -147-moneyline favorites versus the Reds, while the game’s total opened at 9.5.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell isn’t so much interested in what is in his team’s rear-view mirror as opposed to what is outside its windshield. Fresh off seeing Boston secure a playoff spot, Farrell and the Red Sox look to inch closer to the American League East title on Friday when they open a three-game interleague series against the host Cincinnati Reds.

“Just getting into the playoffs is not our goal,” Farrell said. “Certainly it’s a steppingstone toward other things that we have our sights set on, as many teams do. We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us.” Boston collected a pair of 11-inning victories and capped a three-game sweep of Baltimore with a 9-0 rout on Wednesday, improving to 11-3 in its last 14 to remain three games ahead of the second-place New York Yankees. NL Central cellar-dwelling Cincinnati hasn’t entertained postseason aspirations in quite some time and is playing like it, having yielded 25 runs in its three-game sweep at the hands of St. Louis. Rookie outfielder Jesse Winker crossed the plate twice in the Reds’ 8-5 setback on Thursday and has scored six runs during his five-game hitting streak.

The Reds were a 8-5 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Cardinals. That made winners of bettors who got St. Louis at -213 on the moneyline, while the total score (13) was good news for OVER bettors.

In their last action, Boston was a 9-0 winner on the road against the Orioles. Bettors on Boston at -240 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (9) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
