Shane’s Free Pick

Mikolas sits with an ERA of 4.14 and in his last start he gave up three runs. The Cubs still only scored four runs on Friday and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here against Mikolas. The Cardinals will give him enough run support to secure the victory. Back the Cardinals.
