KSReds: Cincinnati Reds Fall Four Games Behind Cardinals

Thanks to a Wednesday afternoon rainout, the Cincinnati Reds will not lose their ninth consecutive series. However, a split with the Pittsburgh Pirates was not good enough either. In all likelihood, the Reds playoffs hopes are dashed as they now sit four games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second National League Wild Card spot.

The Cardinals have won 10 straight games heading into their Wednesday night matchup with the Brewers. Cincinnati has gone 9-17 over the course of the last nine series to fall out of playoff contention. One team took the bull by the horns while the other team wilted despite a favorable schedule.
