THE REDS ARE OFF TO ST.
LOUIS TO DEFEND FIRST PLACE IN THE NL CENTRAL
After winning 5-of-7 games against the Pirates and Astros during their
latest home-stand, the first place Reds are off to St. Louis to play the
Cardinals. The Reds are currently one game ahead of the Cardinals in the NL
Central standings and own the best record (30-21) in the National League.
This weeks three-game series against the Cardinals will be the last time the
division rivals face-off until August 9-11 in Cincinnati.
Reds owner Bob Castellini says.
"We’re having a lot of fun."
The Reds' recent success has been a result of coordination. The Reds'
offense has been rampant (leading the majors in home runs with 67) while the
starting pitchers haven't received a loss in over two weeks. With the Reds'
most dominant player Joey Votto sidelined with a stiff neck, veteran Miguel
Cairo has been replacing the damage. When Homer Bailey was placed on the
15-day disabled list, Sam LeCure stepped in and secured the mound. This
vibrant group of players is enjoying success and defining unity. They are a
this team, everybody contributes every night,"
Aaron Harang said.
Bronson Arroyo (5-2, 4.30) will face Jaime Garcia (4-2, 1.14) and the
Cardinals at 4:15pm on Monday.
