Just think of it like this...the Reds have 25 games remaining.
If they win 13 and lose 12 the Cardinals would have to win 20 of their remaining 27 games just to tie the Reds.
I believe the Reds will win more than 13 of the next 25 games and I don't think the Cards can win 20 of their next 27.

At Colorado is very rough. Reds hardly ever win there. I've always believed that the operative margin will be after this series.
Let's see how many games ahead the Reds are after Thursday. Then we can judge how this pennant race stands.
Brewers have plated two so far in the bottom of the first against double-agent Kyle Lohse. Secret agent Dickerson trying to plate another.
2-0 Brewers and still batting in bottom of 1.
Narverson on mound for Milwaukee.
Secret agent Dickerson Kd, but at least the Brewers have drawn first blood.
2-0 after one.
Narveson is a fairly poor lefty, just the kind of pitcher that gives the Cards problems.
He has struck out Pujols, Holliday and Rasmus.
Brewers had a sure run taken away from them.
1st and 3rd, no one out, routine DP grounder.
Runner going to second called for interference, so the Cards get the DP and runner returned to third. Next batter gets out.
2-0, end of second.
2-2 tie after 2 singles bring in Pujols and Holiday.

Good Lord! They are bringing in Hoffman to replace Axford for the save. This is almost criminal.
Thank you Trevor Hoffman!!!
BTW-I think all the AL contenders should be worried if they have to play the Orioles anytime in the next few weeks. They're playing MUCH better than they were earlier in the season and they're no easy win for those teams anymore. They've beaten several other contenders all ready and now they've gotten to the Yankees the last two nights. Tonight they had to go through CC Sabathia too! Go O's!! :

An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
MODS: Please CLOSE either THIS THREAD or the NL CENTRAL AND WILDCARD SCOREBOARD WATCHING PART III THREAD. Having them both open with the same topic is kinda pointless. THANKS
I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou
