Cardinals Vs. Reds: Red-Hot Adam Wainwright Takes Mound For St. Louis

The St. Louis Cardinals (69-57) saw their modest four-game winning streak end on Saturday night, and will take the field Sunday for the final time this year at Great American Ball Park looking to even their season series with the Cincinnati Reds (77-51).

Homer Bailey (10-8, 4.11 ERA) will take the mound for Cincinnati. Bailey has struggled at his home stadium, going just 3-6 with a 5.42 ERA in 13 starts.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET.
