Cincinnati Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals

7:10 PM ET

Jackson Stephens vs. Jack Flaherty

After a successful weekend series and a well-earned off day, the Reds are back at it tonight to face the Cardinals.

Jackson Stephens will take his turn as the next man up as the Reds starters start running out of innings. Stephens was impressive in his only other start this season, a spot start against the Cubs in July where he struck out 8 and earned the win. He’s thrown 6 13 innings in long relief since rosters expanded, and has yet to give up a run.

He’ll face a fellow rookie in Jack Flaherty for the Cards.

Go Reds!
