Mike Leake returns returns to the place where he spent 5 1/2 seasons at as the Cardinals and Reds get set for battle on Tuesday night.
St. Louis continues to try and separate themselves from that .500 mark while the Reds struggles continue to pile up.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals just haven’t been able to pick up steam this season.
They’ll try to get above the .500 mark by 4 games with a win here in the series opener.
St. Louis already finds themselves 10.5 games back in the NL Central and in 3rd place. Right now, the Wild Card looks to be the main focus for them.
Matt Carpenter has been leading this Cardinals offense as of late and he’ll look to keep things going. Carpenter has hit .429 with 8 extra base hits over his last 8 games.
The former Red gets the nod here and will look to find more success in a place where he pitched very well during those 5 1/2 seasons. Leake put together a 62-47 record as a Reds player and has started this season off by going 4-4 with a 3.82 ERA.
Leake has won 4 of his last 5 starts.
The Reds are probably wishing they had Mike Leake in their rotation.
Cincinnati’s pitching struggles continue to mount up this season, but things haven’t so bad for this last place team lately.
The Reds were denied a sweep and saw their 4 game losing streak come to an end on Sunday. They had a 5 run lead disappear in the loss, but the offensive outburst is quite the encouraging sign.
John Lamb who finally put an end to his 3 game losing streak will take the hill here. Lamb is just 1-3 on the season and has compiled an ERA of 5.58.
He allowed 1 run in 7.0 innings in Colorado, which is an odd as this is a place where the ball flies.
Prior to that he lasted just 3.2 innings against Milwaukee. Keeping the ball down and finding rhythm early is extremely important for him to be successful.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
The Reds pitching staff struggled all series long against Washington this past weekend, but got bailed out by the offense.
Still, this rotation is bad and Lamb hasn’t proven much with consistency, which gives the Cardinals an advantage here.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: St. Louis -1.5
St. Louis is a much better team and given their edge in both pitching and hitting, this is a spot where they certainly can win by more than 2.
