Cardinals hope to rebound as Reds try to play spoiler

CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds will play a significant role in the pennant races beginning Tuesday night when they host the St. Louis Cardinals to open a three-game series at Great American Ball Park.

The Reds conclude the home portion of their schedule with a three-game series with the Boston Red Sox next weekend. Both the Cardinals and Red Sox are in contention for division titles and playoff spots, while the Reds are building for next year and beyond.

Reds manager Bryan Price was asked how he will approach developing young players while also putting a competitive lineup on the field out of respect for opponents.

"We'll have a fairly representative lineup the rest of the season," Price said. "That doesn't mean these young guys aren't going to play. That's our responsibility. The priority is the Reds, not the Cardinals, or the Pirates, or the Red Sox. But, I do respect the environment we're in and won't unload the bench."

Rookie right-hander Jackson Stephens will make his second career start for the Reds on Tuesday. He earned his first major league victory in his debut in a 5-3 win over the Chicago Cubs on July 1 at Great American Ball Park.

Stephens turned 23 in May and this will be his fifth appearance in three stints this season with Cincinnati. He led Triple-A Louisville's pitching staff in wins, starts, innings pitched, and strikeouts.

The Cardinals also will start a rookie on Tuesday with right-hander Jack Flaherty making his third start since being recalled on September 1. The 21-year-old right-hander has allowed nine earned runs through 13 1/3 innings, but he'll likely have an extended stay in the rotation during the final two weeks of the season to see what he can do. But, not without help.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Adam Wainwright will be reinstated from the disabled list this week with the former rotation ace moving into the bullpen to providing relief support for Flaherty. Wainwright hasn't made a relief appearance since 2015. He faced hitters for the first time during a live batting practice session on Sunday.

"That was encouraging," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny told reporters following Wainwright's session. "I don't think it's a situation to stretch him at this point. Make sure it looks good, feels good, and that he can rebound."

The Cardinals (77-72) are coming off a crushing three-game sweep by the Cubs at Wrigley Field and desperately need to get back on track in Cincinnati to rekindle their playoff hopes.

Cincinnati (66-84) swept the Pittsburgh Pirates over the weekend at Great American Ball Park and is starting to get solid performances from its young starting pitchers. The Reds now are within two games of climbing out of last place in the National League Central.

The Reds will be looking to reach the 1,000-win mark against St. Louis during this series. Cincinnati currently has 998 wins over the Cardinals since 1900. At 9-7 this season against them, including 5-2 at Great American Ball Park, the Reds are looking for their first season series win over St. Louis since 2011. Cincinnati is 3-2-2 against the Cardinals in the last seven completed series of more than one game.
