Cincinnati Reds (67-91) at St. Louis Cardinals (82-76)
Thursday, September 29 – 7:15 PM EST
Busch Stadium, St. Louis, Missouri
Line: CIN +175 / STL -190; Total: 8
Play: Under 8 Runs
The St. Louis Cardinals trail San Francisco by one game for the second wild card in the National League, with only four games remaining. They’re 2-5 in their last seven games and they’ve been very inconsistent at the plate lately. The Reds won last night’s meeting 2-1 and the under is now 7-2 in the Cardinals last nine home games.
Dan Straily (14-8, 3.74 ERA) takes the ball for Cincinnati. He has posted a 2.61 ERA through his last three starts and he held the Cardinals to one run and three hits over 5 2/3 innings on Sept. 3. The Cardinals turn to Alex Reyes (4-1, 1.58 ERA) who surrendered three runs and six hits over five frames against the Cubs in his last time out but had tossed seven scoreless innings against the Giants in his previous turn. Reyes faced the Reds on Sept. 2, when he held them to two runs and six hits in six innings.
The nerves are getting to the Cardinals, especially at the plate and we can note that they were 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position yesterday. I expect a low-scoring contest at Busch Stadium tonight.
