St. Louis vs Cincinnati: Cruising Cardinals Host Receding Reds
Baseball’s best Cardinals continue to occupy the MLB top perch
Following a 2-5 stumble heading into the MLB Midsummer Classic, St. Louis has soared out of the All-Star break with 7-2 record. That hot streak has the Cardinals six games up on Pittsburgh in NL Central and 3.5 games ahead of Show Me State rival Kansas City for first overall in the Majors. In the midst of a ten-game homestand, the Cards begin a three-game series with the Reds who they have won five straight against by a 24-10 margin – all of which were played back in April.

Based on their +5000 World Series price, posted at Bet365 back in March, expectations where low in the Queen City this season. Cincinnati has lived up to their lowly forecast as they are 43-53 and 19 games behind the Cardinals. The NL Wild Card race is also out of reach as the Reds sit ten games behind San Francisco. Cincinnati is 4-6 since the All-Star break and 8-12 so far in July. Hitting and pitching share equal blame for the Reds regression as Cincy has scorer 384 (20th) runs while giving up 435 (24th). Cincinnati was crushed 17-7 by the Rockies in Colorado yesterday.
