Yep, since the Cards last played the Reds they've lost a series to Chicago, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, and (depending on today) they could lose the series to Washington. If the Cards keep that up and the Reds just avoid a sweep next weekend the Cards won't have much of a chance to win the division.
Their fans can cling to their record vs the Reds all they want. But, at the end of the season what will matter much more is the final overall
record of St Louis and Cincinnati.
