The St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers meet Tuesday in MLB action at Miller Park.
The St. Louis Cardinals look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Cardinals have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 12 games. The Cardinals have won nine of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Cardinals with 43 hits and 16 RBI while Tommy Edman and Kolten Wong have combined for 73 hits and 30 RBI. Jack Flaherty gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 3.08 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. Flaherty is 2-4 with a 4.56 ERA and 74 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Brewers have scored four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five straight games. The Brewers have lost six of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Keston Hiura leads the Brewers with 38 hits and 26 RBI while Avisail Garcia and Christian Yelich have combined for 64 hits and 33 RBI. Brett Anderson gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 4.64 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 0-2 with a 2.63 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are 2-8 in their last 10 Tuesday games. The Brewers are 2-6 in their last 8 Tuesday games, 0-6 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The over is 5-1-1 in Cardinals last 7 overall. The Cardinals are 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.
Jack Flaherty has allowed five runs and eight hits in his last 7.2 innings while Brett Anderson has allowed 17 earned runs and 39 hits in his last 33 innings. Flaherty has been the better pitcher this season with a 3.08 ERA, and the Cardinals are the more trustworthy team despite their inconsistencies. The Milwaukee Brewers just cant put runs on the board and it's an issue that continues time and time again. I can't get behind the Brewers with any confidence. Give me the Cardinals if forced to pick this game.
