St. Louis is 5-1-1 Over last 7 at home vs. right-handed starter and 11-5-1 Over last 17 vs. NL Central.

This is a tough matchup for the Cardinals after they played well against Atlanta this past weekend. They now are tied with Pittsburgh for the lead in the National League Central. Cincinnati is just 2.5 games behind both teams and seven games ahead of Arizona for the last wild card spot. They could have helped themselves this past weekend, but they lost two of three to the lowly Milwaukee Brewers. Mike Leake (11-5, 3.12 ERA) goes the mound for the Reds. His numbers are good overall but he's struggled this month. In four starts, Leake is 1-1 with a 6.26 ERA. In his last start against Arizona, he picked up the win but allowed four runs in six innings. On August 4, he allowed seven runs over five innings in a loss to the Cardinals.  Tyler Lyons (2-4, 5.09 ERA) is a left-hander who is filling in for the injured Jake Westbrook. He faced Cincinnati on June 8 and gave up four runs over 5 1/3 innings, allowing homers to Jay Bruce and Devin Mesorasco. He was just recalled last week to pitch out of the bullpen before Westbrook strained his lower back. Lyons has given up 13 runs in his last three starts.
