Asked about the St. Louis Cardinals 10th straight series win Thursday night Greg Joseph Jersey Elite , manager Mike Shildt explained it simply.You win series, youre going to win the Series, he said.While St. Louis is two months away from that goal, it continues to march toward the postseason. With its 5-0 blanking of the Pittsburgh Pirates, it remained atop the National League wild-card race and stayed within 4 1/2 games of the first-place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central.Article continues below ...The Cardinals, whose 21 wins in August are their most in a month since August of 2004, will try for a 22nd victory to end the month Friday night when they open a three-game series with the Cincinnati Reds in Busch Stadium.Its just the byproduct of daily consistency and focus, Shildt said. Youre seeing guys with a competitive spirit and theyre bringing it every day. Its clearly not easy to win games, but the guys are committed on a daily basis.At 75-59, St. Louis is 28-13 under Shildt. His first game was July 15 http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/greg-joseph-jersey , a 6-4 win over Cincinnati, and the last series it lost under his command was in late July against the Reds.Those Reds were playing good baseball at the time, winning against good teams and making a case for interim manager Jim Riggleman to become the permanent skipper. These Reds have regressed to whats been a five-season mean, falling back to 20 games under .500 Thursday with a 2-1, 11-inning loss to Milwaukee.Not even the activation of All-Star first baseman Joey Votto from the 10-day disabled list could enable Cincinnati (57-77) to turn things around. It has lost eight of the last 10 games as a familiar problem has cropped up. The Reds have allowed 67 runs in that span.If recent and career-long trends hold true, Friday night probably wont launch a turnaround for Cincinnati. Veteran right-hander Homer Bailey (1-12, 6.17 ERA) will start the series opener, which should excite Cardinal fans and their hitters.Bailey is coming off a 9-0 loss Sunday at the Cubs, permitting eight hits and six runs, three earned Authentic Greg Joseph Jersey , over five innings. The Reds have lost 17 of his 18 starts this year, including nine in a row, dating back to his 5-3 win on May 12 at the Los Angeles Dodgers.Bailey is 0-1 with two no-decisions in three outings against St. Louis this year, logging a respectable earned run average of less than 4.00. But in his career, Bailey is 6-14 with a 5.57 ERA in 26 starts, throwing 22 home run balls in just 140 2/3 innings.The Cardinals counter with rookie left-hander Austin Gomber (4-0, 2.79), who has permitted only four runs in his last four starts, covering 22 innings. Gomber checked Colorado on five hits and two runs over six innings Sunday in a 12-3 romp at Coors Field, walking one and whiffing six.In his first career start on July 24 Myles Garrett Jersey Elite , Gomber took a no-hitter into the seventh against the Reds before losing it and ultimately being no-decisioned in a 4-2 St. Louis win. NEW YORK (AP) St. Louis Cardinals first-round draft pick Griffin Roberts has been suspended 50 games after testing positive for a drug of abuse.Major League Baseball announced the ban Friday.Roberts is a right-handed reliever who was selected 43rd overall from Wake Forest this year. He pitched for Class A Palm Beach after signing for $1,664,200 and had been expected to move quickly through the minor leagues.This was Roberts second violation for a drug of abuse, and he will not be paid during the suspension.Four other minor leaguers were also suspended for 50 games Friday: Red Sox pitcher Francisco Lopez-Soto, Yankees pitcher Alex Mauricio, Reds catcher Hunter Oliver and Athletics pitcher Dallas Woolfolk. Lopez-Soto and Mauricio were banned for drugs of abuse, and Oliver and Woolfolk tested positive for the stimulant Amphetamine. None of those players has played beyond Class A.
