Cincinnati Reds vs St. Louis Cardinals MLB Odds, Start Time

The NL Central leading Cincinnati Reds will shoot for their third series win of the season when they battle the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium later this evening. Start time in tonight’s divisional showdown between the Reds and Cardinals is set for 8:15pm ET.

Cincinnati improved to 5-2 last night and took a two game lead over the second place Cardinals with a 13-4 series opening win against St. Louis. The score was tied 4-4 heading into the final frame, but the Reds blew the game open with a nine run ninth inning.

Bronson Arroyo can only hope for the same kind of run support tonight as he makes his second start of the season. Arroyo earned a win in his first appearance after limiting the Angels to three runs over six innings in a 5-4 Reds victory on April 4th.

Countering Arroyo for the Cards is right handed hurler Lance Lynn. Lynn got roughed up for six hits and four earned runs over four innings in his first start of the season, a 9-10 loss at Arizona. For his career he is 0-0 with a 7.50 ERA in four appearances (one start) opposite Cincinnati; however, Lynn owns a 9-5 record with a 3.13 ERA in 23 outings (13 starts) at Busch Stadium.

The Reds, who won their 2012 season series with St. Louis 9-6, are 3-4 in their last seven meetings with the Cardinals.
