Cardinals Preview

The St. Louis Cardinals are 3-5 this season and have lost four of their last five games. St. Louis won Game 2 of this series by a score of 6-0 on Saturday. The St. Louis pitching staff has a 4.56 ERA, a 1.55 WHIP, and a .283 opponent batting average this year. The Cardinals offense has scored 35 runs with a .307 batting average and a .372 on base percentage. Jordan Walker is batting .355 with two home runs and seven RBI’s for the Cardinals. The projected starting pitcher for St. Louis is Jake Woodford, who is 0-1 with a 12.46 ERA and a 2.31 WHIP over 4.1 innings pitched this season. 

Brewers Preview

The Milwaukee Brewers are 6-2 this season and have won six of their last seven games. Milwaukee won Game 1 of this series by a score of 4-0. The Milwaukee pitching staff has a 2.79 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP, and a .214 opponent batting average. The Brewers offense has scored 42 runs with a .269 batting average and a .364 on base percentage this year. Brian Anderson is batting .417 with three home runs and 10 RBI’s for the Brewers. The projected starting pitcher for Milwaukee is Freddy Peralta, who is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP over 6.0 innings pitched this season.


St. Louis is 12-3 in their last 15 game three’s of a series and 8-3 in their last 11 Sunday games. The under is 6-1-1 in St. Louis’ last 8 road games. Milwaukee is 6-1 in their last 7 games and 4-1 in their last 5 home games. The over is 3-1-1 in Milwaukee’s last 5 Sunday games. The under is 5-0 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.


St. Louis was able to get a huge win on Saturday that snapped their losing streak and snapped the Brewers six game winning streak. The Cardinals will look to make it two in a row in this game and will turn to Jake Woodford, who allowed six runs over 4.1 innings pitched against the Braves in his first start. The Brewers will have Freddy Peralta on the mound, who pitched great in his first start. I like Milwaukee at home here.
