The St. Louis Cardinals have had their struggles this year but coming into this game they have won two games in a row. Each of the last two games the Cardinals have scored seven runs. In the last game, Paul DeJong was the star of the show putting up two hits and driving in four RBI’s. In the last game the Cardinals almost blew the game late, but they found a way to get the job done. In this game the Cardinals need the bullpen to be good.

Nick Castellanos has been the star of the show for the Reds hitting ten home runs and driving in 24 RBI’s.
