The Reds and Cardinals are going to be getting very familiar with each other this weekend. Friday’s postponement due to inclement weather means the teams will consecutive doubleheaders on Saturday and Sunday.
The Reds have been on the road for the past 7 games but after Friday’s cancellation they will have had two straight off days. That can either help with fatigue – or get the team out of whack and out of their regular routine. Cincinnati has won 3 of 4 coming into Saturday – but all against Miami.
Both teams have some pitching rotating to do with the doubleheaders. It will be Trevor Bauer going in game one for the Reds. Bauer struggled in his last start, lasting just 3 innings while giving up 7ER vs. the Pirates.
Can Bauer be better on Saturday afternoon? The right-hander also struggled August 14th vs. the Nationals, giving up 9ER in 4.1 IP. Bauer has a 7.62 ERA in 5 August starts.
St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis is in a good spot this weekend with 4 games upcoming vs. the Reds. The Cardinals have a 1 game lead over Chicago in the Central but play 2 more games than the Cubs in the next two days.
The Cardinals have also had the last 2 days off but they hope that doesn’t kill their momentum. St. Louis has 6 wins in the last 7 games and have won 16 of their last 21 home contests.
It will be Dakota Hudson on the hill for the Cardinals in Saturday’s early game. Hudson hasn’t allowed a run in his last 18-2/3 innings pitched. Hudson has allowed just 7ER in three starts vs. the Reds this season.
