Jaime Garcia 8-2 vs. Reds


Jaime Garcia will be making his 13th career start against Cincinnati Reds and hopes he continues his winning ways against them. He has gone 8-2 with a 3.39 ERA against the Reds in his career. Garcia has really been a great pitcher for the Cardinals and his stats at home only make this team tougher to beat today. At home Garcia has a 20-11 record with a 2.45 ERA. The Reds will have to be very patient at the plate against Garcia and hope they can strike early like they did against Adam Wainwright yesterday.

Bronson Arroyo 8-14 vs. Cardinals


Bronson Arroyo will be making his 33rd career start against St. Louis Cardinals and hopes to get another win against a team that has had some very good success against him. Mat Latos yesterday broke his losing ways in Busch Stadium so hopefully Arroyo can do the same. 8-14 with a 4.60 ERA is not bad against a very tough team like St. Louis and I have a feeling Arroyo still has many more games to go against them.

Bronson Arroyo (2-2, 4.24 ERA) vs. Jaime Garcia (2-1, 2.89 ERA)
Preview

Bronson Arroyo will try to bounce back against St. Louis Cardinals and get a win against Jaime Garcia. Arroyo is going to need all of his pitches to be hitting the targets today against this very tough Cardinals team. Hopefully he pitches a great game like Mat Latos did yesterday. The Reds would love to have him go 7+ innings today.

#Reds Mat Latos vs. St. Louis Cardinals


Mat Latos starts it all off for the Cincinnati Reds today in the second half of this great 2012 season. I am hoping for a no hitter but if that can’t happen a 2 hit shut out will be fine too. :)

Bronson is back!


Great game today for the Reds. Bronson Arroyo pitched a great game and it is very nice to see him going deep into games to help rest the bullpen. Sean Marshall did a great job in the last inning. Todd Frazier was very impressive with some very good swings although he did not get a hit. Drew Stubbs went 3 for 5 with a HR batting in the 2 spot. Brandon Phillips went 2 for 5 with a HR and people are wondering if Dusty should put him on the DL because of his injury. Ryan Ludwick went 2 for 4 with a HR. Reds win 6 – 3. I hope this sparks something and they sweep the Cubs.
