Arizona is 2-6 in their last 8 Tuesday games and 3-5 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record. The over is 18-8 in Arizona’s last 26 Tuesday games. St. Louis is 42-19 in their last 61 game two’s of a series and 2-6 in their last 8 home games. The under is 5-1 in St. Louis’ last 6 game two’s of a series. Arizona is 18-37 in these two teams last 55 head to head meetings.


St. Louis comes into this game with a 7-10 record and they have had a slow start to the season. The Cardinals will turn to Jordan Montgomery in this game, who has allowed five earned runs over 18.1 innings pitched this year. Arizona is starting Drey Jameson, who has pitched well this year, but only has had one start. I like the Cardinals at home in this matchup.
