Update: Cardinals’ Reds-killers

Albert Pujols

1. Pujols. .367, 35, 102. .367 is his third best average against a National League opponent. Reds are one of just three teams Pujols has 100+ RBIs against. Pujols has scored more runs (114) against the Reds than any other team.

2. Chris Duncan. .355 with 7 homers. The 33 hits he has collected against the Reds are five more than he has against any other team (Cubs, Brewers). His OBP in 103 at-bats against the Reds is .417. His slugging percentage is .613.

3. Ryan Ludwick. .344 with 9 homers and 26 RBIs in 93 at-bats. .344 is 79 points higher than his average against any other team he has 100+ plate appearances against. 9 is most HR vs. any opponent and 26 is 6 more RBIs than he has against any other team. His slugging percentage against the Reds: .753. OPS: 1.155.

And to a lesser extent …

4. Joel Pineiro. 3-0, 2.22 ERA in 4 starts. 19 Ks, 7 BBs.

5. Chris Carpenter (who’s on the DL). 3-3. 2.47 ERA in 9 starts. .883 WHIP. 8.9 Ks/9.

6. Ryan Franklin. 2.18 ERA in 20 2/3 innings.

7. Blaine Boyer. 0.00 ERA in 7 1/3 innings.

On a more positive note, Skip Schumaker only hits .233 against us. And former Red Jason LaRue is only 3-for-24 (.125) against Cincinnati.
