The St. Louis Cardinals will play the Atlanta Braves in Game 2 of their series at Truist Park on Tuesday night.
The St. Louis Cardinals are 44-38 this season and have lost four of their last five games. St Louis lost Game 1 of this series by a score of 6-3 on Monday night after a lengthy weather delay. The St. Louis pitching staff has a 3.84 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a .245 opponent batting average this season. The Cardinals offense has scored 386 runs with a .253 batting average and a .320 on base percentage. Paul Goldschmidt is batting .340 with 19 home runs and 65 RBI’s for the Cardinals this season. The projected starter for St. Louis is Andre Pallante, who is 2-3 with a 2.10 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 55.2 innings pitched this season.
The Atlanta Braves are 47-34 this season and have won three of their last four games. Prior to winning Game 1 of this series, Atlanta won two out of three games against the Reds. The Atlanta pitching staff has a 3.72 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a .232 opponent batting average. The Braves offense has scored 384 runs with a .248 batting average and a .315 on base percentage this year. Dansby Swanson is batting .304 with 14 home runs and 49 RBI’s for the Braves this season. The projected starter for Atlanta is Ian Anderson, who is 6-5 with a 5.31 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP over 76.1 innings pitched this season.
St. Louis is 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games and 4-10 in their last 14 road games. The under is 5-1 in St. Louis’ last 6 Tuesday games. Atlanta 12-3 in their last 15 home games and 24-7 in their last 31 games. The over is 5-1 in Atlanta’s last 6 Tuesday games. St. Louis is 0-5 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams had to endure a long weather delay on Monday night and didn’t finish their game until about 1am. Atlanta jumped out to a nice lead early in the game and was able to hang on for the win. Ian Anderson has struggled this season and has allowed 11 runs in his last six innings of work for the Braves. Andre Pallante has allowed seven runs in his last 18.2 innings for St. Louis. I like the Cardinals to win on the road here.
