Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals, after postponing the first game of this series due to rain, they will play the last of what were supposed to be two games at the Reds home in Cincinnati.
Date: Wednesday, September 1, 2021.
Time: 6:40 PM (ET)
Location: Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Cincinnati Reds: Each win is gold.
The situation is not easy for the Reds. They have a positive record with 71 wins and only 62 losses, but it’s still not enough to make the postseason. The Cincinnati Reds have to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers to get a spot in the postseason and play, probably, the San Francisco Giants.
The record for the last 10 games is a headache for the Reds. Most of the games were on the road. Exactly six games on the road, just two wins, one against the Miami Marlins and one against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Cincinnati Reds are scoring an average of 3.4 runs per game in the last 10 overall, and 4.1 runs average at home in the last 4 games.
Sonny Gray will open tonight’s game against the Cardinals. This season he has a record of 6 wins and 6 losses with a 3.91 ERA. Sonny’s best years were with Oakland Athletics between 2013 and 2015. Gray lost four games to St. Louis between 2020 and 2021 as a starter.
St. Louis Cardinal: Almost impossible.
The chances of the St. Louis Cardinals reaching the postseason are slim. They have a positive record at 67-63 in the Wild Card Standings. But those numbers are not enough to play the postseason. This year, the Cardinals played 6 series against the Reds, the record is 3-3.
The last series against the Reds was a two-game win at Cincinnati. The Cardinals won the first game 10-3, and the second game 3-1. After this short series of one game, they return home. The next series against the Reds will be September 10-12 in St. Louis. The Cardinals won 5 of the last 10 games and the on the road record is slightly negative at 32-33.
