The St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers face off on Thursday in a key National League Central showdown that will go a long way in deciding playoff seeding.
The Brewers had a great chance to find success against the Cincinnati Reds and improve their position, buth they managed to lose two of the three games and the offense was a big issue. In the series they only scored seven runs total and in the two losses they gave up six runs. This is a team that has been better against left handers this season sitting with an average of .243. In this game runs might be at a premium so they need to do everything they can to manufacture runs. Keston Hiura has hit 13 home runs and driven in 32 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Cardinals who also had a chance to inflict some damage against the Royals, but their offense was also bad and that led to them losing tw of the three games. In the last game against Kansas City they were defeated 12-3. On offense the Cardinals really haven’t had a star but they have used a balanced attack. Brad Miller has driven in 25 RBI’s while Tommy Edman and Paul DeJong have 24 RBI’s.
The under is 11-3-1 in the Brewers last 15 games played on Thursday. The Brewers 3-9 in their last 12 road games. The over is 6-1-1 in the Cardinals last eight home games. The over is 8-2-1 in the Cardinals last 11 games played on Thursday.
Corbin Burnes will get the start for the Brewers and coming into this game he sits with a 4-0 record and an ERA of 1.77.
Kwang-hyun Kim will get the start for the Cardinals and coming into this game he sits with a 2-0 record and an ERA of 1.99.
These are two pitchers who have been lights out this season and that will continue in this game. Look for both pitchers to lock down and that is going to lead to this game staying well under the total.
