This should be a fun weekend series with the Cardinals looking for some revenge. Both teams had 8-10 records heading into Friday action.
Cincinnati starts the weekend looking to refind their mojo. They head into the weekend as the top-scoring team in the league. They are tops in homers and OPS, which often go hand in hand. They were just swept by Arizona though, and at home. That is not something good teams do.
Surprisingly Wade Miley has been one of their more effective starters. In two of his three starts, he has not given up a run this season. In the one where he was touched up he was not able to keep the ball in the ballpark. That is something to watch.
The Reds bullpen has slid in concert with the team. Those are definitely linked. Amir Garrett Garrett has been a disaster as the new closer. He is going to be digging out his ERA for a while.
St Louis Cardinals
St. Louis is 10th in scoring early on. However, their offense seems to be boom or bust as five times in their last 10 games they have been held to 2 runs or less, including three times they been shutout.
John Gant does not have a win yet this season but he has been pretty solid in a starting role. He puts too many men on base though and eventually that luck might run out. I am not sure which way that is going to go.
The bullpen has not missed him at all. This group might be one of the best in the game and I am not sure enough people are recognizing that. If they stabilize Andrew Miller then look out.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. St Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
This one is a very even tilt. I want to fade MIley but the St. Louis offense has just been so inconsistent this year. Still the bullpen is significantly better for St. Louis.
Take the Cards at home. That is never a bad play.
