(AP) -- John Lackey has been dominant recently but that's been the case at home all season. That could change against red-hot Joey Votto and the Cincinnati Reds.
Lackey will try to slow Votto down and help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Reds for the 10th time in 12 meetings at Busch Stadium on Wednesday night.
Since allowing a season-high 10 runs over four innings of an 11-3 loss at Colorado on June 8, Lackey (9-5, 2.88 ERA) has gone 5-1 with a 1.75 ERA in eight starts since. He's lasted at least seven innings in seven of those outings.
