St Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals will be looking to dash their division rivals chances at the postseason and increase on their 1 game lead over the Cubs in the NL Central. The Cardinals have been in great form as of late going 6-1 in their last 7 and winning series over the Royals and Pirates.
Going to the mound for the Cards in this one is Jack Flaherty (6-6, 3.52 ERA) who is having a productive season this year. Flaherty has been awesome in recent times going 7 innings against the Royals last time out without conceding a run. In that game he also extended his scoreless innings pitched streak to 23. The Cards righty, on the other hand, has not had great success against the Reds in his career giving up a .286 average, a .351 OPS and allowing 3 home runs in the 70 batters he has faced.
The Reds know they will need to turn around some poor recent form (4-6, last 10) and have a solid series here, at home, against division rival St Louis. Although the Reds chances of postseason ball is not high, they are still in striking distance sitting 6.5 games back of a Wild Card spot and we certainly have seen crazier things happen before.
Looking to defend home turf in this pivotal matchup the Reds will send Alex Wood (1-1, 5.59 ERA) to the hill. Wood is coming off a decent performance in which he went 5 innings and allowed 3 runs to the Nationals in a losing effort on Tuesday. Wood will, however, need to turn his career stats against the Cardinals around as he has faced 79 Cards batters and allowed a .304 average and 5 home runs.

Free St Louis Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
I can see both of these guys getting roughed up in this spot, but especially Alex Wood who has a mid 5’s ERA. If either of these guys has a short outing I think we could see this total of 9 get crushed.
