St. Louis comes into this game with an 8 game lead in the NL Central over the Brewers, while Milwaukee comes into this game a couple of games out of a wild card spot. Milwaukee is starting Matt Bush, who will only last about an inning and has allowed two runs over his last 5.1 innings. For the Cardinals, Jordan Montgomery has allowed one earned run or less in six of his seven starts for St. Louis. Montgomery has been outstanding since joining the Cardinals and I am riding them to win this game by a couple of runs.
