The St.Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers face off on Saturday at Miller Park in Milwaukee in a National League Central showdown. Friday’s game was postponed because two Cardinals players had positive tests, but this game is still expected to take place. 

The St. Louis Cardinals come into this game with a 2-3 record and coming into this game they have lost three games in a row. Over the last three games, the Cardinals have scored only four runs total and that isn’t enough to get the job done. Only one time this season the Cardinals have scored more than five runs and that is going to need to change in this game.

On the mound for the Cardinals is Jack Flaherty who hopes to have another strong start. In Flaherty’s first start he was strong giving up only two runs on six hits and if he is strong again, the Cardinals should be in good shape to come away with the win. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Milwaukee Brewers who had some struggles in the first series against the Chicago Cubs, but in the last series against the Pittsburgh Pirates they won two of their three games. In the Brewers last game they were strong against the Pittsburgh Pirates giving up zero runs and they won 3-0. 

On the mound for the Brewers will be Brett Anderson who is coming off the 10 day IL to get this start. Last season  Anderson finished with a 13-9 record and an ERA of 3.89. 

The Cardinals 2-7 in their last nine games overall. The Cardinals are 9-14 in their last 13 meetings against the Brewers. The Brewers are 19-7 in their last 26 games played on Saturday. The under is 11-3 in the Brewers last 11 games played on Saturday. 

The Cardinals offense is struggling coming into this game and that will let them down in this game. The Brewers might not score ten runs in this game but they are going to do enough to come away with a win. For extra value, they are worth a look on the run line.
