Jaime Garcia 8-2 vs. Reds


Jaime Garcia will be making his 13th career start against Cincinnati Reds and hopes he continues his winning ways against them. He has gone 8-2 with a 3.39 ERA against the Reds in his career. Garcia has really been a great pitcher for the Cardinals and his stats at home only make this team tougher to beat today. At home Garcia has a 20-11 record with a 2.45 ERA. The Reds will have to be very patient at the plate against Garcia and hope they can strike early like they did against Adam Wainwright yesterday.

Preview

Bronson Arroyo will try to bounce back against St. Louis Cardinals and get a win against Jaime Garcia.
