8/24 vs. STL
Reds lineup vs. Cardinals
*This could be a big series, especially if the Reds don’t win. Right now, they’re seven games up on the second-place Cardinals. If St. Louis sweeps or gets two out of three, things could get a little hot under the collar for Cincinnati because then the Cardinals would be back within striking distance. If the Reds win the series, or sweep, they could head to Arizona either nine or 10 games up and feel even better about their situation before getting Joey Votto back.
*The Reds remain a MLB-best 29-12 since the All-Star break. At 76-50 entering the night, they are on pace for 97 wins.
