"Mike Matheny has served the St. Louis Cardinals organization with tremendous dedication and pride and I am thankful for his service to the Cardinals over the past six and a half seasons,"said Cardinals' Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Bill DeWitt Jr. in a press release. "On behalf of the entire Cardinals organization, I would like to wish Mike the very best."
At one point earlier this season, the Cardinals had won 13 straight games against the Reds. That streak began in 2017. The Reds ended that losing streak June 10 and with two victories this weekend in St. Louis — by a combined score of 17-3 — have now won three in a row against the Cardinals.
