TicketIQ's MLB Game Of The Day (6/27)

June 27, 2014

Cincinnati Reds vs San Francisco Giants | Avg. Price: $35 | Get-in Price: $7

Johnny Cueto (7-5, 1.86 ERA) vs Madison Bumgarner (9-4, 2.63), 7:15 pacific time

After Cincinnati won the first game of this four game series Thursday night, two aces will head to the mound for Friday night’s matchup. Both pitchers will have a tough act to follow as Reds starter Mike Leake had a career game Thursday night. Leake struck out 12 Giants in eight innings, allowing just an eighth inning home run to Adam Duvall in route to a 3-1 victory. Tonight’s game has an average price of just $35, 69% below the average price of San Francisco Giants vs Reds tickets this season. The get-in price of $7 is also the only game of the series in single digits.

If both starters pitch like they have up to this point in the season, the price of this game will be a steal. Johnny Cueto takes the mound for the Reds, who has been one of the best starting pitchers in the National League this season. In his 16 starts, Cueto has already thrown three complete games. He’s struck out 119 batters in 116 innings while only allowing 31 total runs and 71 hits in that span.

Madison Bumgarner has also been one of the better starters in the National League this season. He’s struck out 111 batters in 102.2 innings this season. His strikeout per walk ratio of 4.44 is the highest of his career.
