Overall this season the best player for the Cardinals has been Brad Miller who has hit five home runs and driven in 20 RBI”s. On Sunday the star of the show was Paul Goldschmidt who had three RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Cubs who’s offense has struggled and with the pitching, they haven’t gotten enough offense going. The Cubs have a talented offense but as of late, they haven’t put enough good at bats in a row. Ian Happ has been the best offensive player so far this season for the Cubs hitting 12 home runs and driving in 24 RBI’s. Kyle Schwarber has also found success hitting 10 home runs and driving in 21 RBI’s.

The Cubs are 11-2 in Hendrick’s last 13 starts against the Cardinals. The Cards are 7-2 in the last nine meetings in Chicago against the Cubs.

Kyle Hendricks is on the mound for the Cubs and he currently sits with a 4-4 record and an ERA of 3.78.
Hendricks might be the better pitcher, but the Cardinals are playing better baseball and the visiting team is going to find a way to get the job done. Back the Cardinals on the money line.
