The Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Busch Stadium. 

The Reds sit with a 34-55 record overall, but they won two of three in their last series against the New York Yankees. On Thursday it took extra innings, but the Reds were able to score three runs in the 10th inning, and secure the win. The Reds big issue this season has been the pitching and they are giving up 5.38 runs per game which is 29th in the league. Brandon Drury has been the top offensive player hitting 18 home runs and driving in 51 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Cardinals who sit with a 48-44 record overall but they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, the offense couldn’t get on the board and that led to the defeat. The Cardinals strength this season has been the pitching and they are giving up 3.91 runs per game which is 7th best in the league. Paul Goldschmidt has hit 19 home runs and driven in 67 RBIs.

On the mound for the Reds is Hunter Greene and he sits with a 3-10 record and an ERA of 5.70. In his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays, he went six innings giving up three hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Cardinals is Andre Pallante who sits with a 2-4 record and an ERA of 3.18. In his last start against the Philadelphia Phillies, he went 5.2 innings giving up nine hits and three runs. 

The Reds are 5-1 in their last six games overall. The Reds are 0-8 in Greene’s last eight road starts. The under is 4-0 in Pallantes last four starts on grass. The under is 9-2 in the Cardinals last 11 games overall. 

The Reds have lost the last eight games started by Greene on the road, and it’s not going to be any different in this game. Greene is coming off a strong start, but he still sits with an ERA of 5.70. The Cardinals bats are going to get back on the right track here and give Pallante plenty of run support. Back the Reds on the run line.
