The Cincinnati Reds head to Busch Stadium in St. Louis for the start of a five-game series against the Cardinals today. The Reds come into this series in 4th place in the NL Central Division. The Cardinals remain atop the NL Central Division with under 20 games to go in the season.
The Reds lost each of the first three games of their series against Pittsburgh, including a doubleheader on Tuesday that pulled the Pirates to within two games of the Reds for fourth place in the division. The Reds offense, a far cry from the Big Red Machine of the 1970s, scored just four runs in the first three games of the series in the usually offensively-friendly Great American Ballpark.
On the other side, the Cardinals continue their march towards the NL Central Division title as they host the Reds in a four-game weekend series. The Cardinals come in after completing a two-game series with second-place Milwaukee on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. On Wednesday night, the Cardinals rebounded from Tuesday’s loss to Milwaukee with a 4-1 win over the Brewers.
Today, the Cardinals will be sending veteran righty Miles Mikolas to the mound. Mikolas has 11 wins on the season and looks likely to pitch in either a game one or game two situations in the playoffs. In his last five starts, Mikolas has gone 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA during that span. Against the Reds this season, he is 1-1 in three starts but with a 6.06 ERA.
Cincinnati replies back with right-hander Chase Anderson. This will be his fifth appearance of the season and fourth start. Anderson is 0-2 in three starts with a 7.88 ERA. He has thrown just eight innings in those three starts and allowed five hits. He’s struggled with his control, walking eight batters in those three starts while striking out 11 batters.
