ST. LOUIS – The lineup that carried the Cincinnati Reds for much of the season is now one of the main reasons why they can’t gain any ground in the wild-card race.

Another left-handed starting pitcher spelled trouble for the Reds' offense. They were shut out for the first time since July 21 in their 2-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, dropping two of three games at Busch Stadium. 

It’s been three weeks – 22 days – since the Reds won a series, dropping six in a row. That's a lifetime in a playoff race. They’ve lost 12 of their last 18 games, but they remain tied with the San Diego Padres for the second spot in the wild-card race after the Padres were swept by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
