Rookie Graham Ashcraft (4-2, 4.35) is scheduled to start for the Reds against All-Star Gerrit Cole (8-2, 3.26). Ashcraft will be pitching on five days of rest and Cole on four.
Ashcraft vs Cole
Ashcraft held the National League East-leading New York Mets to two runs in six innings last Wednesday in Cincinnati but did not get a decision. He scattered 10 hits while striking only one and issuing no walks.
This will be Ashcraft’s first career appearance against the Yankees.

Ashcraft has struggled on the road this season with a 1-1 record and 6.98 ERA in four starts. In six starts at night, he is 4-1 with a 3.03 ERA.
Cole was shaky in his last start but was still able to beat the Red Sox last Thursday at Boston. He surrendered five runs on five hits in six innings while striking out seven and walking three.
The Reds have given Cole all kinds of problems throughout his career. He is just 1-8 against them with a 4.68 ERA in 13 starts.

Stephenson and Donovan Solano each had three of the Reds’ 14 hits. Pham and Mark Reynolds added two apiece.
First baseman Joey Votto missed his seventh consecutive game with back stiffness and is considered day-to-day.
The Yankees got early homers from Giancarlo Stanton and Matt Carpenter on Sunday in building a 6-2 lead over the Red Sox after three innings. Boston then scored the game’s last nine runs.
Stanton and Carpenter each had two hits for the Yankees as did DJ LeMahieu and Jose Trevino.

Reds vs Yankees Prediction
Cole’s 1-8 record against the Reds is alarming but that came primarily against much better Cincinnati lineups when he pitched for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Ashcraft has looked good at times but it’s hard to buck Cole at home.
Pick: Yankees ML (-295)
