The St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at the Great American Ballpark.

The St. Louis Cardinals come into this game with a 7-4 record overall but they didn’t look in the last game. The offense didn’t get on the board against the Miami Marlins, and that led to the 5-0 defeat. Two games ago against the Marlins, the offense only scored two runs, but that was enough to win. Nolan Arenado has been the top player the Cardinals hitting five home runs and driving in 14 RBI’s. 

The Cincinnati Reds come into this game with a 2-11 record overall and he has gone 0-2 at home. In the last game against the San Diego Padres the offense again struggled losing 6-0. The Reds pitching staff has been an issue, but even worse has been the offense that is averaging 2.85 runs per game. Tyler Stephenson has been the top player for the Reds hitting two home runs and driving in six RBI’s.

The Cardinals are 9-2 in their last 11 games during Game 1 of the series. The over is 6-0 in the Reds last six home games. The over is 3-0-1 in the Reds last four games against the National League Central. The over is 10-2 in the Reds last 12 games following an off day.
