Martinez is 4-1 in his last five starts with a 2.03 ERA in that stretch. He has pitched at least seven innings in each of his last three starts, including a flawless game against the Giants on May 20 where he threw nine shutout innings picking up a no-decision.

Asher Wojciechowski is ready to make his fourth appearance and second start for Cincinnati. In his last outing, he threw four innings, allowing four earned runs and six hits for a no-decision Tuesday in the 6-4 loss at Toronto.
