This one – on paper at least – looks like it could be disastrous for Cincinnati starting pitcher Homer Bailey. Against the Cards current roster, Bailey has allowed 36 percent hitting with 200 at bats recorded.

Cincinnati is 6-14 in Bailey’s last 20 starts vs. St. Louis and 1-8 in Bailey’s last 9 road starts in St. Louis.

Matt Carpenter (St. Louis) - Matt Carpenter doubled twice and drove in one run Thursday as the Cardinals beat the Brewers.  He is an impressive 15-of-25 against Cincinnati starter Homer Bailey. 

Matt Holliday (St. Louis) – Another solid hitter against Bailey, he’s gone 13-of-42 with two home runs.  Holliday went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run single to help the Cardinals dispatch the Brewers on Wednesday.

Yadier Molina (St. Louis) - Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Wednesday's win against the Brewers.  He’s 11-of-33 against Bailey with three homers.

Zach Cozart (Cincinnati) - Reds SS Zack Cozart is 10-for-22 during a six-game hitting streak. He is 2-for-8 with three strikeouts versus Martinez.
