The St. Louis Cardinals will play the Chicago Cubs in a double header on Saturday at Wrigley Field.
The St. Louis Cardinals are 30-22 this season and have won four of their last five games. St. Louis won Game 2 of this series by a score of 14-5 on Friday afternoon. The St. Louis pitching staff has a 3.80 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a .242 opponent batting average this season. The Cardinals offense has scored 256 runs with a .255 batting average and a .323 on base percentage. Paul Goldschmidt is batting .349 with 12 home runs and 47 RBI’s for the Cardinals this season. The projected starter for St. Louis in Game 1 is Andre Pallante, who is 1-0 with a 1.07 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP over 25.1 innings pitched this season. The projected starter for St. Louis in Game 2 is Johan Oviedo, who is making his first appearance of this season.
The Chicago Cubs are 22-30 this season and have won three of their last four games. Chicago won Game 1 of this series by a score of 7-5 on Thursday night. The Chicago pitching staff has a 4.39 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a .246 opponent batting average. The Cubs offense has scored 232 runs with a .240 batting average and a .320 on base percentage this year. Ian Happ is batting .265 with six home runs and 27 RBI’s for the Cubs this season. The projected starter for Chicago in Game 1 is Matt Swarmer, who is 0-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP over 6 innings pitched. The projected starter for Chicago in Game 2 is Caleb Kilian, who is making his first appearance of the season.
Both of these teams come into this game playing well in their recent games and both have won once and lost once in this series. The pitching matchups are never easy to predict when teams play a doubleheader and this is no exception. As it lines up currently, Pallante and Swarmer will match up in Game 1 and Oviedo/Kilian will match up in Game 2. I like the Cardinals to take Game 1 and the Cubs to take Game 2 of this doubleheader. The Cubs are using two starting pitchers that have limited experience, which is definitely something to watch.
