Kyle Farmer continues to have a solid season for the Reds in 2022.

Despite the Reds' recent struggles, one cannot blame infielder Kyle Farmer for their slide. The Farm Dawg has done everything possible to try and lead the Redlegs to victory.

Over his last seven games, Farmer is slashing .318/.348/.500 with a homer in 22 at-bats. However, it's been much more than a good week for the veteran. Farmer has produced a solid .294/.323/.462 slash line with five homers in his last 30 contests.

Naturally, the right-handed hitting University of Georgia alum has feasted on southpaws. In 126 at-bats versus lefties, Farmer is hitting .310 with seven of his 11 homers coming against left-handers. Jordan Montgomery, you've been warned.

And don't let anyone tell you the Kyle Farmer is not clutch. The former eighth-round selection of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2013 MLB Draft has compiled a .320 mark with runners in scoring position while driving 56 home.

Prediction: Reds avoid being swept, but...

At his point in the season, the only thing the Reds have to play for is winning at least 63 games to avoid a 100-loss season. To get to 63, the Redlegs will have to go 7-13 over their last 20 contests.

Unfortunately, Cincinnati is not going to get much closer to that 63-win number as they drop four of five to the Cardinals over the weekend before returning home on Tuesday night to face the Boston Red Sox in a brief two-game set.
