The Saint Louis Cardinals will visit the San Francisco Giants in the first game of their series in the National League West versus National League Central matchup from Oracle Park on Wednesday night. The weather is expected to be mildly humid with a 0% chance of rain and 5.8 mile per hour winds.

The San Francisco Giants are coming off of a 8 run loss against the Los Angeles Dodgers in their last game. The series ended at 2-0 in favor of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Alex Wood got the start for the San Francisco Giants in this one. He has a 4.38 ERA, with 26 strikes and a 1.30 whip. He allowed four hits and three runs while pitching into the sixth inning before calling it a night in the horrid loss.  He spent five seasons with the Dodgers over two stints.

San Francisco Giants manager Kapler has not announced a starter for this contest. 

The Saint Louis Cardinals are coming off of a 10 run win against the Kansas City Royals in their last game. The Cards offense was hot with Nolan Arenado hitting a three-run homer and drove in five runs, Tyler O'Neill hit a two-run shot and drove in three, and Harrison Bader and Paul DeJong also drove in runs. The series ended at 2-1 in favor of the Cardinals.  

Adam Wainwright got the start for the Saint Louis Cardinals in this one. He has a 3.18 ERA, with 28 strikes and a 1.29 whip. He allowed just a one-out single against the Royals. This is the start of a 7 game home stand for the Cardinals. 

Saint Louis Cardinals right-hander, Miles Mikolas will be the starter for this one. He has a 1.52 ERA, with 25 strikes and a .84 whip. 

The Cardinals are 14-10 on the season and are 4-6 in their last ten games. The Giants are 14-10 overall and are 5-5 in their last ten contests. I like for the Cardinals to start out with a win in this one as these teams are very even. The Cards have the edge here.
