¡Viva El Gallo!

The St. Louis Cardinals (6-3) face the Cincinnati Reds (5-5) at Busch Stadium at 1:15 p.m. CT. The Cardinals have won three games in a row and consequently stand alone atop the National League Central division standings, a game ahead of the Chicago Bryants. Sure we're only nine games into the season but it felt good to type that sentence.

The Reds have optioned Pedro Villareal to Triple-A Louisville. Why? To make room for Homer Bailey, whom the club activated from the DL to start today's game.

The Cardinals lineup:

  1. Matt Carpenter, 3B
  2. Jason Heyward, RF
  3. Matt Holliday, LF
  4. Matt Adams, 1B
  5. Jhonny Peralta, SS
  6. Yadier Molina, C
  7. Jon Jay, CF
  8. Pete Kozma, 2B
  9. Carlos Martinez, P

The Reds lineup:

  1. Billy Hamilton, CF
  2. Joey Votto, 1B
  3. Todd Frazier, 3B
  4. Brandon Phillips, 2B
  5. Jay Bruce, RF
  6. Marlon Byrd, LF
  7. Brayan Peña
  8. Zack Cozart, SS
  9. Bailey, P
