Knee-deep in red ink, we turn to the Reds-Redbirds matchup in St. Louis on Sunday. Cincinnati’s Wade Miley (5-4, 3.26 ERA) sat for 10 days with a left foot sprain, but showed no lingering effects coming off the IL, limiting the Phillies to one run, six hits over six confidence-building innings on Memorial Day.
The last time Miley pitched on the road, he was crushed at Colorado on May 14, removed following three frames after eight Rockies had crossed the plate.
The Cardinals counter with John Gant (4-3, 1.60 ERA), who has not allowed a run over his past two starts, covering 11 innings against two quality lineups in the Chisox and Dodgers. Play 20 units on the Cardinals.
Yes! No! We got Essential Quality home in the Belmont, but the Schlubs lost in Frisco, 4-3, with just three hits on the night. The Giants made three errors to keep it close. Loss takes us to —1,527 drosselmeyers.
