The Reds and Cardinals will wrap up their 4 game series this Sunday afternoon. Cincinnati will look to complete a surprising sweep over their NL Central foe and continue to climb back up to .500.

Cincinnati has flipped the teams strength from last season to this one. It was unable to ever get the offense going last year, despite having one of the top pitching staffs in baseball. This year has been the opposite, its pitching has been unable to match the offensive production.
LF Jesse Winker and RF Nick Castellanos have formed a dangerous 1-2 punch at the top of the Reds lineup and continue to account for the majority of the team’s production. The duo currently holds the top 2 highest batting averages in the league at .364 for Castellanos and .348 for Winker.
Castellanos also has the 2nd most hits in the league with 69, Winker follows on the team with 62 hits before a large drop-off to 40 hits until the next player. Winker leads the Reds with 14 HR’s to go along with 31 RBI’s while Castellanos has 12 HR’s and 31 RBI’s plus a team high .421 OBP.
The Reds rank 6th in the MLB offensively with a team batting average of .247.
St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis has been playing fairly well over the last week or so. The Cardinals went on a four-game winning streak that included three wins at Arizona over the weekend. They then dropped 2 of 3 games against the Dodgers including a tough 14-3 loss on Wednesday to wrap up that series.
Third baseman Nolan Arenado, who was the team’s big offseason acquisition, has produced 11 HR’s and a team high 36 RBI’s on 59 hits.
The Cardinals rank 18th in the MLB with a team batting average of .231.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
Cincinnati has won the first 3 games of this series by a run margin of 15-8. The offense has showed up in each outing, scoring at least 4 runs in every game so far.
The Cardinals have a slightly pitching edge in this one as John Gant carries in a 1.60 ERA into this one opposed to Miley’s 3.26 ERA.
Nonetheless, the Reds have controlled this series and Yadier Molina is out due to injury which is a big loss to this Cardinals lineup.
Take Cincinnati to sweep.
