The Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals meet Saturday in MLB action at Busch Stadium.
The Milwaukee Brewers need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Brewers have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six straight games. The Brewers have lost four of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Keston Hiura leads the Brewers with 46 hits and 32 RBI while Avisail Garcia and Orlando Arcia have combined for 82 hits and 35 RBI. Brandon Woodruff gets the ball, and he is 2-5 with a 3.43 ERA and 81 strikeouts this season. Woodruff is 2-1 with a 3.60 ERA and 20 strikeouts in his career against the Cardinals.
The St. Louis Cardinals look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Cardinals have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Cardinals have won seven straight games when scoring four or more runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Cardinals with 55 hits and 20 RBI while Tommy Edman and Koletn Wong have combined for 97 hits and 41 RBI. Adam Wainwright gets the ball, and he is 5-2 with a 3.05 ERA and 51 strikeouts this season. Wainwright is 18-10 with a 2.45 ERA and 227 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 14-6 in their last 20 Saturday games, 7-2 in their last 9 during game 4 of a series and 4-1 in their last 5 games as a favorite. The Cardinals are 4-0 in their last 4 Saturday games, 20-7 in their last 27 during game 4 of a series and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The under is 4-0 in Brewers last 4 overall. The under is 5-1 in Cardinals last 6 overall. The Brewers are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in St. Louis and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
Brandon Woodruff has been more than solid this season, but the Brewers are a tough sell these days with their inability to score runs. Adam Wainwright has been solid all season long and has a .212 allowed batting average this season, and the Cardinals have the more trustworthy offense. Hard not to side with the Cards and the cheap price here.
