Fowler homer sends Cards to win

A 2-run home run by Dexter Fowler in the top of the 11th inning broke a 2-2 tie and sent St. Louis to a 4-2 victory Tuesday night at the Reds.

Jose Martinez had an RBI single, while Yairo Munoz contributed an RBI double. Sam Tuivalaila picked up the win as he allowed one hit with two strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings. Bud Norris earned his 19th save as he allowed one hit with one strikeout and one walk in one inning.

Suarez ties game with homer

Cincinnati third baseman Eugenio Suarez hit a 2-run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning which tied the score at 2-2. He ended the game 1-for-4 with the home run and a walk. Jose Peraza, Joey Votto and Adam Duvall each had a single. Amir Garrett suffered the loss as he allowed two earned runs on two hits with one strikeout and one walk in one inning.

Jack Flaherty (4-4, 3.15 ERA) will start today for the Cardinals, while Sal Romano (5-8, 5.19) gets the nod for the Reds.

MLB Betting Trends

St. Louis

The over is 8-2 in the last 10 Cardinals games overall. St. Louis is 1-7 in its last eight Wednesday games.

Cincinnati

The over is 19-6-2 in the last 27 Reds games overall. St. Louis is 18-5 in the last 23 meetings.

Prediction: 

St. Louis has dominated this series the last couple seasons, but the Reds have quietly played some very good baseball over the last month. Romano has shown flashes over the last month-and-a-half, while Flaherty has shown a few signs of slowing down. With Cincinnati being at home and St. Louis being inconsistent all season, this seems like a good spot for the hosts especially considering the Cards are coming off an emotional high.
