The Cardinals are a below average team. Their rotation is bad and the offense is pitiful. The Milwaukee Brewers are far and away the best team in the NL Central.
The Brewers are riding their offense almost exclusively (it is a very good offense). But their pitching is a huge question mark. After tonight, they have a negative run differential. 107-112. They're not a great team.
Through 24 games, the Reds have allowed 104 runs.
