Livan Hernandez ( 1-3, 6.68 )
Hernandez will face the Cardinals for the 14th time in his career. He is 4-5 with a 4.93 ERA against them. In his last start, Hernandez pitched seven innings and gave up four runs on eight hits against the Reds. Hernandez continues to have problems in the first inning. The Reds used seven batters to score three runs in the first inning. For the season, Hernandez has surrendered 12 runs five first innings.


Chris Carpenter ( 3-1, 1.91 )
Even at less than his best, Carpenter can be plenty effective. That was the case in his last start, when he held the Pirates to two runs over six innings despite not having much sink on his sinker. Carpenter hasn't kept the ball on the ground as much this year as last season, but he's throwing lots of strikes and keeping it in the park -- and that's always a recipe for success.
