The St Louis Cardinals hope to leave Great American Ball Park with a win against the Cincinnati Reds.
The St Louis Cardinals are approaching the stretch drive of the season and are not playing well. That trend continued in a 5-1 loss at Great American Ball Park that saddled the team with defeats in eight of eleven. Starter Lance Lynn allowed three runs over six innings with the pen allowing two more. It mattered little what the pitching did with the Redbirds producing just five hits and three walks with Jason Heyward driving in Matt Carpenter with the lone run. The Cardinals end their series at Great American Ball Park with Michael Wacha on the mound. Wacha is coming off an 8-5 loss to the Cubs with six runs plated on six hits and three BB in four innings.

The Cincinnati Reds aren’t going to win the National League Central and are doing their best to keep the Cardinals from winning it. The Reds have now won three in a row against the rival Redbirds and go for the four game sweep on Sunday afternoon. It was a complete effort with starter Anthony DeSclafani allowing the lone run on four hits while striking out ten through six innings to get the win. The offense mustered six hits and six walks with Skip Schumaker cracking a three run bomb while Tucker Barnhart drove in a run and scored. Rookie Raisel Iglesias draws his third start of the season against the Cardinals on Sunday. Iglesias will be looking to bounce back from a 7-3 loss to Pittsburgh where he gave up five runs on six hits in three frames.
The over is 8-3-2 in St Louis last 13 road games and is 15-6-5 in their last 26 overall while going 15-6-5 in their last 26 on grass. The over is 7-2 in Cincinnati last 9 overall and is 7-2 in their last 9 on grass while the Reds are 6-20 in their last 26 Sunday games. The under is 9-1 in the last 10 meetings. I don’t know if I can bet this but the Cardinals to avoid the sweep…
