The 21-year-old Noelvi Marte went 4-5 with a home run for Cincinnati in their 15-6 loss to St. Louis. Marte has had a big series in St. Louis so far, he is 6-10 at the plate with a pair of home runs in the first two games. Cincinnati has recorded 25 runs and 31 hits during the first two games of the series.
St. Louis Cardinals DFS SPIN
The St. Louis offensive was explosive in their 15-6 win against Cincinnati on Saturday night. As a team they recorded 15 runs on 13 hits, while eight of the nine starters recorded a hit. St. Louis will be in for a tougher challenge come Sunday as they face hard throwing right-hander Hunter Greene.

Reds vs. Cardinals MLB BETTING PREDICTION
The Reds magical season finally came to end on Saturday night, as Miami secured the final wild card spot. Cincinnati surpassed expectations this year, however it still has to be disappointing falling just short. Reds will turn to Hunter Greene to try to close out the season with a win, while St. Louis will give veteran Miles Mikolas the ball. Greene is in the makings of being a massive star in Cincinnati in the upcoming years. At only 24-years of age and his recent injuries this season, most notably his hip injury that put him on the 60-day IL, I wouldn’t expect the Reds’ coaching staff will let him go deep in this nearly meaningless contest. I like St. Louis here to deliver one more win for the home crowd and capitalize on what could be a demoralized Reds team in the final game.
