Cincinnati has a winning home record and the Reds are 17-5 in interleague home games vs. a team with a winning record. The Royals just wrapped up a long homestand and are on a 2-6 run on the road. The Royals go with Edinson Volquez, with the team 1-2 his last three starts. Volquez was charged with six runs on eight hits over seven-plus innings Wednesday against the Tigers in a 7-4 defeat. He is 1-2 with a 4.84 ERA in six starts against his former team, the Reds. The Royals are 1-5 on the road against a right-handed starter and face Cincinnati righty Raisel Iglesias, who has allowed 3, 1 and 2 runs his last three starts. He is 2-0 at home where opponents hit .238 off him. Iglesias put together his third straight quality start at San Diego on Wednesday in a 7-3 win. The Reds are 4-1 in interleague games against a team with a winning record, making this a great spot for the home dog. Play the Reds.
