The New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Busch Stadium. On Friday it was St. Louis that was able to secure the 4-3 victory.
The Yankees sit with a 70-37 record overall but they have shown some holes the last couple of weeks that need to be fixed quickly. On Friday it was the bullpen that blew the game late. The Yankees offense is the top in baseball averaging 5.35 runs per game. The pitching hasn’t been as dominant the last week, but they are still ranked 3rd in the league. Aaron Judge should be named the MVP after the season is over and he has hit 43 home runs and driven in 93 RBIs. Anthony Rizzo was scratched on Friday night and it’s unclear his status.
On the other side of this matchup is the St. Louis Cardinals who sit with a 58-48 record overall and they have won five games in a row. The Cardinals still aren’t being talked about enough for how they have looked this season. The Cardinals offense is averaging 4.65 runs per game which is 6th in the league. Paul Goldschmidt is having a monster season hitting 26 home runs and driving in 82 RBIs.
On the mound for the Yankees is Domingo German who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 6.39. In his last start against the Seattle Mariners, he went five innings giving up six hits and two runs.
On the mound for the Cardinals is Jordan Montgomery who was just traded from the Yankees at the trade deadline. He sits with a 3-3 record and an ERA of 3.69.
The Cardinals are 6-0 in their last six home games. The Yankees are 0-5 in German’s last five starts on the road against teams with a winning record. The over is 4-0 in the Yankees last four Saturday games. The over is 8-1 in the Yankees last nine during Game 2 of a series.
The Cardinals have won their last six home games, and the Yankees have struggled in German’s last five starts on the road against teams with a winning record. I expect a good start from Montgomery here and the Cardinals to give him enough run support to win. It only took four runs on Friday, and it might be all they need here.
