NL Central rivals the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals take the field in Saturday MLB.
The Cincinnati Reds stayed hot with a dominant 9-1 victory at St. Louis on Friday. Cincinnati starter Matt Harvey stayed in the groove the groove with the lone run scoring over five frames while four relievers put up zeros.

The Reds racked up 14 hits and four walks with Scooter Gennett going deep while Dilson Herrera clubbing a three run bomb followed by Scoot Shebler who went 3-3 with three RBI.
Luis Castillo draws Saturday’s starting assignment at the Cardinals. Castillo did not receive a decision in a 6-5 loss at the Cubs with three runs given up on six hits and two BB through four frames.
The St. Louis Cardinals had nothing go their way in Friday’s one sided defeat to visiting Cincinnati. St.. Louis starter Carlos Martinez gave up three runs over 4.2 innings with three relievers giving up a combined six runs.
The Cardinals offense was limited to four hits and three bases on balls with Yadier Molina ripping an RBI double that scored Paul DeJong in the first.
St. Louis gives Saturday’s starting assignment versus visiting Cincinnati to Jack Flaherty. Flaherty comes in off of a 13-8 loss (ND) at San Francisco with three runs scoring over 2.1 frames.
Over is 16-5-2 in Cincinnati last 23 overall and over is 16-5-2 in Cincinnati last 23 on grass and Cincinnati are 10-25 in their last 35 Saturday games. Under is 5-1 in St. Louis last 6 vs. a team with a losing record and St. Louis are 0-4 in Flaherty’s last 4 starts. Cincinnati are 16-36 in the last 52 meetings in St. Louis and are 4-17 in the last 21 meetings
I don’t like what Flaherty has been doing but the Cardinals should have success here…
