Free MLB Pick:
With a struggling pitcher taking the mound the Reds offense should be able to sneak across a few runs and build a lead for Mahle who has been solid this season. The Reds offense has been bad this season but facing one of the worst pitchers the Cardinals have to offer they get on him early and are able to hold onto the lead to get the win. Coming off a low scoring win in the series opener, they continue to build on that and coming in as a small underdog, the Reds have a ton of value in this game. Final Score Prediction, Reds win 5-3.
