Cardinals Love Playing At The Great American Ball Park

The St. Louis Cardinals will look to round out a three-game series sweep of the Cincinnati Reds in the Queen City. The Cardinals have now won their past four games at the Great American Ball Park while outscoring the Reds 34-14.

Shark Bites
  • Matt Carpenter is 17-for-31 in his career vs Homer Bailey.
  • The Reds are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games at home with Bailey as the starting pitcher.
  • The Cardinals are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games on the road against the Reds.

Carlos Martinez will look to rebound with the Cardinals pitcher coming off one of the worst outings of his career. The righty allowed a career-high seven runs in 5.1 innings against the Chicago Cubs last Friday. Martinez, who celebrates his 26th birthday Thursday, has faced the Reds twice already this season, going 0-2 with a 7.15 ERA.

Homer Bailey will be battling some demons when he takes the mound in this one. The 10-year veteran surrendered 10 runs in 3.1 innings of work in his last outing against the Cardinals on August 6. Bailey has been solid since that outing, allowing two or fewer runs in four of his seven starts since he laid that egg.
