St. Louis continues to grow their lead in the NL Central over the Brewers and should cruise into the playoffs. Washington has had a rough season, but they have played decent over their last few games. The Cardinals have a big advantage in this game in starting pitching and I think that will be the difference. I am taking the Cardinals to win by at least two runs.
