Corey's Free Pick
It’s very hard to ignore the type of momentum both teams carry into game two here. Milwaukee has found a groove early, while St. Louis just can’t seem to figure things out right now. The Cards lead the league in batting average, but after dropping four straight it remains to be seen if they can be trusted as road favorites against a streaking Brew Crew. Spot Milwaukee the runs for this NL Central battle.
