Reds and the Cardinals start a three-game set with the first one being on Thursday night. Veteran Adam Wainwright will be on the mound for the red birds and the Reds got Young Gun Sonny Gray on their side.
Cincinnati comes into this series 9-11 and in fourth place in the NL Central. They are five games out of first place, but only a half-game back of the Cardinals for third place.
Nick Castellanos has been a great offseason addition for the Reds as he leads the ball clubs in home runs with nine. Castellanos also leads the ball club in RBI’s with 20. As a team, the Reds average 4.36 runs per game which ranks 21st in the league.
Sonny Gray is looking for his major league-leading fifth win of the season. Gray has been fantastic since joining the Reds last year and this year is no different. Gray has a 4-1 record with a 2.05 ERA.
St. Louis Cardinals
Cardinals are in third place at 6-7 coming into the series and are only three games back of Brewers for the second playoff spot in the central.
The red birds have thrown out a bunch of different lineups since their COVID hiatus and are 3-3 since coming back from the stoppage. Matt Carpenter leads the cards in RBI’s with 11 after smacking a grand slam in the first game of a doubleheader with the Cubs on Wednesday.
Cardinals should get a boost on Thursday as Yadier Molina is eligible to come back off the IL for the Cardinals and that’s big for them to have a veteran presence with so many young guys.
It looks like Adam Wainwright found the fountain of youth as he has just a 1.64 ERA to begin the season in two starts. Wainwright has a 2-0 record to begin the year and will look to stay undefeated on Thursday.
Free Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
I love the over even though both these pitchers have been dealing. 8.5 runs is just way too high with two pitchers with almost sub-two ERA’s. Sonny Gray has been great but has been known to give up some runs in a hurry as well as Wainwright.
