Absent of his best stuff and battling wet conditions, Carlos Martinez breezed through the better part of seven innings after a 2-hour and 35-minute rain delay in a game you heard on WBBZ.  His 11 strikeouts highlighted a 3-2 win over the Reds that capped a four-game sweep and sent St. Louis to Chicago on a bit of a roll headed into its first series of the year against the Cubs.  The Cardinals and Cubs match up for the first time this season in one of the most storied rivalries in all of sports. St. Louis will look to erase the memories of 2017, when it went 5-14 against Chicago. Adam Wainwright (0-2, 5.06 ERA) opposes Tyler Chatwood (0-2, 4.91) in Monday’s opener, set for 5:10 pm on WBBZ from Wrigley Field.
