St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals cannot lose games or they will not reach the playoffs. The imminent danger of the Cardinals falling into a losing streak is very real. 63-55 in the Central Division of the NL, but the Cubs are close with 64-56 in second place. Another danger for the Cardinals is the Brewers with 63-58.
On the road the Cardinals have a negative record with 28-33. The Cardinals are allowing up to 4.79 runs per game, 3.65 walks, 8.31 hits, 1.25 home runs. The offense is not bad but the team is scoring only 4.41 runs per game.
The last series on the road was a victory against the Royals. But before that victory the Cardinals suffered a losing streak of five games.
Adam Wainwright, 14 years with the Cardinals. 8-8 this season in 22 games as a starter. 120 pitched innings, 4.35 ERA and 118 strike outs. The last game was a defeat against Athletics 2-4.
The Reds may want to harm the Cardinals by winning all the games in the series. The season has been negative for the home team with 56-63 in the National League.
At home the Reds are scoring an average of 4.72 runs per game, 3.02 walks, 8.51 hits and 1.57 home runs. The defense allows up to 4.49 runs per game. Only three losses in the last 10 games at home.
In July the Reds lost a series against Cardinals 1-3 at home. In April they also played two games against them at home 1-1.
Luis Castillo has been a lethal weapon for the Reds this season. 11-4 in 24 games as starter. 2.69 ERA, 142.3 pitched innings and 172 strike outs. A victory against the Cardinals in the second series of the 3-2 season.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
The defensive advantage is the Reds. The home pitcher is the strongest point of the home team. But the Cardinals are 7-3 against the Reds in the last 10 games. Just a victory with Castillo on the mound. Visitors are looking for victories and will find them in this series.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 9
The biggest problem for the Cardinals during this game is Luis Castillo (Reds pitcher). In addition, the Cardinals offense does not play well on the road. I see a black future this month for the Cardinals in the race for the playoffs.
