The St. Louis Cardinals are 85-60 this season and have won four of their last six games. St. Louis won Game 2 of this series by a score of 6-5 on Friday night. The St. Louis pitching staff has a 3.85 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP, and a .248 opponent batting average.

The projected starter for St. Louis in Game 2 is Jose Quintana, who is 5-6 with a 3.34 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 143 innings pitched this season.
The Cardinals come into these games with an 8 game lead in the NL Central over the Brewers and have pretty much locked up the third seed in the NL. Cincinnati has lost seven out of their last eight games and their pitching has really struggled. St. Louis is starting Dakota Hudson in Game 1, who has allowed 11 runs over his last 16 innings pitched. Mike Minor hasn’t been very good this season, but has allowed two runs or fewer in three out of his last four starts. I like the Reds in Game 1. I am taking the Cardinals in Game 2 behind a strong outing from Quintana.
