The MLB brings more action on Sunday afternoon as the Cincinnati Reds take on the St Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium in St Louis, Missouri in the last game of a three-game series. The Cardinals took game one by a score of 4-2. For this game, the Reds will give a start to the 25 years old Luis Castillo and the Cardinals will counter with the experienced pitcher Miles Mikolas.
Cincinnati Reds Form
The Reds had a terrible start of the season which resulted in the firing of their manager Bryan Price. Their misery has continued as the lost the first and the second game in the series against the Cardinals. The Reds have a terrible record of 1-11 in the last 12 games.
On the offensive side of their game, the Reds have been poor so far as they are placed on the 29th spot in the league in scoring an average of 2.95 runs per game, while also being placed on the 27th in hitting at .223 and 28th in homers with 11. On the mound, their stats are poor as they are placed on the 28th spot in the league in ERA at 5.38, while also being 27th in WHIP at 1.47 and 25th in K’s with 142.
St Louis Cardinals Form
The Cardinals also did not have a good start of the season, but they were able to bounce back won seven of their last eight games. The Cards have significantly improved their offense as they have averaged 5.88 runs per game over their past seven games.
On the offensive side of their game, the Cardinals have been in an average form as they are placed on the 14th spot in the league in scoring an average of 4.63 runs per game, while also holding the 13th spot in hitting at .240. On the mound, they have been enjoying a solid form very solid which placed them on the 8th spot in the league in ERA at 3.43 while also being placed on the 22nd spot in WHIP at 1.37 and 16th in K’s with 165.
It seems that the Cardinals are in a good form at the moment, while the Reds are on a downfall. St Louis has a good offensive record in their recent games and I think that might be the key to this game. They were able to beat the Reds on Saturday with a 4-2 score and the expectation is that they will not miss the opportunity to win the third and final game of the series against an opponent that is in a poor form. Go for the Cardinals in this one.
