Greene is coming off an outstanding performance Monday when he shut out the Arizona Diamondbacks on one hit over seven innings for the win. It became both his first career shutout and complete game when the game was shortened because of rain.

Daulton Varsho led off the game with a bunt single, but Greene retired the next 20 batters, finishing with eight strikeouts and no walks.

Greene will be facing the Cardinals for the second time in his nascent career. He lost to them April 22 in St. Louis when he allowed three runs in 3.1 innings.

Greene has a 1-5 record on the road with a 6.03 ERA in seven starts in 2022. In five starts during the day, he is 2-2 with a 6.23 ERA.

Wainwright is 0-1 in his last three starts despite a fine 2.37 ERA.

Last Sunday against the Cubs in Chicago, Wainwright failed to record a strikeout in seven innings in a no-decision. He gave up two runs, nine hits and two walks.

We might never see a battery like Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright ever again

The Reds are one of the few teams Wainwright has struggled against as he has a 10-16 lifetime record and a 5.34 ERA in 37 games (32 starts).

The ageless 40-year-old is 2-2 with a 2.40 ERA in five starts at home this season and 2-2 with a 3.22 ERA in four daylight starts. He has +10000 NL Cy Young odds.

The Reds’ Joey Votto has had sustained success against Wainwright, hitting .317 (19-for-60) with six doubles, four home runs and 10 walks. Tommy Pham is 6-for-9 with a double off Wainwright but Albert Almora Jr. is hitless in 11 at-bats.

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is expected to be back in the lineup and paired with Wainwright after not starting the previous three games because of general soreness.

Right fielder Dylan Carlson was activated from the injured list before Friday’s game after being out since May 22 with a strained left hamstring. He went 1-for-3.

Reds catcher Tyler Stephenson was placed on the injured list before the game with a fractured right thumb. He was hurt Thursday when he struck by a foul ball in a loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Center fielder Nick Senzel (lower back strain) missed his third straight game and left fielder Albert Almora Jr. (sprained shoulder) was also out Friday. Both are expected to be available Saturday, though Almora could stay on the bench because of his struggles against Wainwright.

The Cardinals have taken three games from the Reds so far this season and hold a 105-76 advantage in the series since the start of the 2012 season.

Reds vs Cardinals Prediction

Greene showed Monday he can be dominant but it’s hard to go against the great veteran in Wainwright. Thus, the lean, albeit a slight one, goes to the Cardinals.

Pick: Cardinals ML -165
