The Cincinnati Reds Visit St. Louis Following a tough loss last night at Miami.
They fell in the 12th by a score of 4-3 and moved to extras. Terrible loss for the Reds, but it is all basic at this point in the season. This summer, they’ve taken themselves. There was plenty of hype when the Reds traded for Yasiel Puig.
At a minimum, the Reds looked at being a team which might find a wildcard. With a record of 63-70, Cincinnati are way off the mark of their aims in 2019. There is promise for the future, though, with Aristides Aquino swinging Luis Castillo at the rotation along with the pole, along with Sonny Gray. The cabinet isn’t likely to be vacant for the Reds.
This season is shot for the Reds, however. They aren’t statistically out of the postseason yet, but about life support, their period is using a shortage at the National League to get a wildcard without much aid in sight for 2019. The Cardinals lead the NL Central and are 10.5 games up on the Reds. The only team that the Cards have to probably concern yourself with in September is that the Cubs.
Milwaukee has an opportunity, but they’ve been gradually fading back and are 5.5 games back of 1st going into the weekend. St. Louis are the best group by far in the NL Central from the second-half. Although the Cards emerged on top of the branch, the Cubs and Brewers have been inconsistent.
However that was their first loss in seven matches, the Cardinals are coming off a loss to the Brewers in Milwaukee. Dakota Hudson will look to begin a new win streak for St. Louis on Friday. He receives the phone against former Indian, Trevor Bauer, this day. Head under for our complimentary Reds vs. Cardinals choice.

Trevor Bauer has stated he is happy he’s out of Cleveland. He seemingly misses nothing about Cleveland, but I’m sure he misses his stats he’d had with his former staff. Things haven’t gone smoothly to Bauer in Cincinnati far. In five outings together with the Reds, Bauer has already posted an ERA of both 7.62 and 1.58 WHIP in 26 innings of work.
The Pirates uprooted Bauer for 2 strikes and 7 earned runs in 3 innings. Perhaps there are a number of things he does not overlook about Cleveland, but he’d have a 3.79 ERA with all the Indians. His ERA has since gone up to 4.34 overall on the year. Bauer has created three appearances on the street since a Red.
They did not go too well for himas he had been KO’d to get a 14.25 ERA along with 2.50 WHIP at 12 innings. It ought to really go much better for Bauer on Friday night, but it can not really get much worse than that for him personally. In his last three outings, he’s been shaky for a 11.30 ERA along with also 1.81 WHIP, all losses on his resume. Bauer may be better, although the Cards are likely still going to be able to reach Bauer.
Dakota Hudson might need to cool off for the Reds to have a shot here and has been on fire. In his last 3 outings, Hudson has not allowed one run. That’s 18.2 innings of scoreless baseball with only 7 hits allowed in complete. Dakota has been at this very best at St. Louis, in which he has a 2.97 ERA compared to some 4.01 ERA on the road. The cost on the Cards seems a little funny here, but I am still eager to back them .
