The Cardinals are 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 4-0 in Lynns last 4 road starts. The Reds are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in DeSclafanis last 7 home starts. The Cardinals are 9-3 in Lynns last 12 starts vs. Reds.
Lynn has had great success against the Reds recently. Also, it's only a matter of time before the Cards get their act together and put another streak together. I like Lynn on the hill and the Cards.
