Cincinnati at St. Louis

For the second time already this season, these rivals will collide in a head-to-head series. This is a rematch of the April 2nd pitchers duel between Cardinals righty Michael Wacha and Reds southpaw Tony Cingrani a game Cinci won 1-0. Michael Wacha tossed 6.2 innings of 3 hit no-run ball with 7K in that matchup getting tagged with a ND for his efforts. Cingrani was also tagged with a no-decision in going 7.0 innings of 2 hit no-run ball with 9K. Cardinals have conditions for pay-back. Wacha performed extremely well in his last three starts at Busch Stadium last season not allowing a run over 22 1/3 innings of work striking out 22 in the process. Cardinals on a 6-3 stretch at home vs a left-handed starter, 20-5 opening a series at home, 17-9 at home in day games the lean for Monday is St Louis.
