The St. Louis Cardinals have won every series they have played this year, a streak they can extended by defeating the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night at Busch Stadium. The Cards defeated the Reds last night on a sacrifice fly by Matt Carpenter, and can win the three-game set with a victory tonight. St. Louis will send out 25-year old lefty Jamie Garcia to face Mat Latos, the Reds' prized 24-year old righty who they acquire from the San Diego Padres this offseason.
