The St. Louis Cardinals will play the Miami Marlins in Game 3 of their series at loanDepot Park on Thursday night.

The St. Louis Cardinals are 7-3 this season and have won four of their last five games. St. Louis has won the first two games of this series by scores of 2-0 and 5-1. The St. Louis pitching staff has a 2.97 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a .234 opponent batting average this season. The Cardinals offense has scored 50 runs with a .242 batting average and a .323 on base percentage. Nolan Arenado has five home runs and 14 RBI’s this season for the Cardinals. The projected starter for St. Louis is Jordan Hicks, who is 1-0 this season with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.75 WHIP over 4 innings pitched.

The Miami Marlins are 4-7 this season and have lost three of their last four games. Prior to losing the first two games of this series, Miami took three of four from the Phillies. The Miami pitching staff has a 3.62 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a .221 opponent batting average. The Marlins offense has scored 40 runs with a .231 batting average and a .311 on base percentage this season. Jazz Chisholm has two home runs and 10 RBI’s for the Marlins this year.

The Cardinals are 4-0 in their 4 games against the NL East and the under is 5-0 in the Cardinals last 5 games with the total set between 7 and 8.5. The under is 5-0 in Lopez’ last 5 Thursday starts and Miami is 5-0 in Lopez’ last 5 starts on grass. The under is 13-3-2 in these two teams last 18 head to head meetings.

Pablo Lopez has started this year pitching very well for the Marlins, who are trying to avoid the sweep. Jordan Hicks has pitched well for St. Louis this season, but it has been a slightly smaller sample size. I do like the Marlins to win at home here behind another strong outing from Lopez.
