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

How do the Reds Follow up Friday?

The Reds sure looked quite impressive on Friday and they scored 19 runs on the way to the easy victory. Nick Martini had a strong game finishing two hits, two runs, and three RBIs. One of those runs was a home run. The Reds are averaging 4.75 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.03 runs per game. The offense is ranked 10th while the pitching staff is ranked 23rd. On the mound for the Reds will be Connor Phillips who sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 5.66. 

Cardinals Need Better Pitching

The Cardinals pitching has let them down all season and it was a big issue again on Saturday when they gave up 19 runs. On the mound for the Reds will be Drew Rom who sits with a 1-4 record and an ERA of 7.98. The Cardinals are averaging 4.39 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.04 runs per game. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Cardinals pitching really struggled on Friday and it’s going to be no different in this game. The Cardinals send Rom to the mound and he sits with an ERA near eight. Look for the Reds to have no issue running up the score again here, and that is going to be the difference as the Reds are going to get the job done. Back the Reds on the money line.
