The Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals meet Sunday night for the second game of a doubleheader at Busch Stadium.
There was also a doubleheader on Saturday, therefore this really is a yearlong doubleheader for Cardinals and the Reds that weekend.
A rainout Friday pushed another doubleheader, although a doubleheader was already scheduled for the weekend. It is a Special situation in St. Louis. The Reds will need to sweep Sunday to only get a split within this set. The streaking Cards were winners in both games yesterday.
Trevor Bauer was organised by the Cardinals’ offense in Game 1. Bauer was chased with allowed 7 hits and 6 earned runs. He hasn’t been good. All has been sucked Cincinnati from him so far.
Bauer appears to be glad he is not a member of the Indians any longer, but he can keep telling him that when it makes him feel better. It is certainly not helping any. The Cards went on for a 10-6 win over the Reds along with Bauer.
In the next game, the Cardinals got another win, albeit at a manner that was different. As he outdueled Sonny Gray in a 3-2 win they rode Michael Wacha’s arm. Gray was perfect this season, but they’ve wasted the season.
Luis Castillo and Gray have united for them to compete for a punch, though that has not been enough. Castillo gets the nod here, although Daniel Ponce de Leon will probably be in for the Cards in Game 2. Head under for our complimentary Reds vs. Cardinals pick. Note that this is really for Game two of the doubleheader.

After tailing off in his campaign a season 20, the Reds had large expectations for Luis Castillo this season. He did everything in his rookie season two years ago, as he finished with a 3.12 ERA in 15 starts. Success such as that as a rookie puts added pressure on pitchers for the next year. Castillo regressed having an ERA of 4.30 in his first full season as a member of the rotation in the significant leagues.
With that expertise, Castillo has been in a position to have a effort in 2019. As the Reds aren’t going to the postseason it has not helped in the column. But Castillo and Gray have contributed Reds’ fans something to be excited about. They have been waiting some time for something to be excited about in his or her turning.
Castillo closes out the weekend for the Reds tonight. He concludes with the ERA of 3.21 and also 1.14 WHIP. However, there are some concerns regarding potential fatigue. He hasn’t been as prominent as before. Castillo has recently posted an ERA of 7.71 and also 1.41 WHIP in his previous three outings. He’s allowed at least 3 runs in three of his four outings, which can be much different than the conduct that he was for the majority of June and on for the first month of this season.
The Cards have been in a position to reach Castillo with the ball before. They’ve already hit Castillo with 12 home runs from 173 at-bats. That contains 26 runs . There are four hitters in the lineup who have joined for 2 dingers from Castillo in his career. Also, Castillo has not appeared so elite in the road, where he retains a 3.83 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. Ponce de Leon is currently coming from a bad showing in Houston, allowing 5 runs in 3 innings, but expect to appear night. At this price at Busch Stadium, the Cards appear to be a great deal in this competition.
