Padres Getting Hot
It might be a little too late, but the Padres are finally getting hot, and they have a lot of confidence after the last week. The big change as of late has been the strong pitching that the Padres have. The Padres are averaging 4.66 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.11 runs per game. On the mound for the Padres is Michael Wacha who sits with a 12-4 record and an ERA of 3.44. In his last start against the Rockies he went five innings giving up five hits and three runs.
Cardinals Look to Close Out Season Strong
It has been a disappointing season for the Rockies but they hope that they can close out this season strong. One problem heading into this game though is that offense hasn’t been very good. The Cardinals are averaging 4.48 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.06 runs per game. The offense is ranked 18th while the pitching is ranked 25th. On the mound for the Cardinals is Drew Rom who sits with a 1-3 record and an ERA of 6.92.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Padres offense is going to have no issue getting the job done in this game. Rom has not been good for the Cardinals and he’s going to really struggle in this game. Rom sits with an ERA of 6.92 and the Padres are going to score five or six runs just off of him. The Cardinals bats are going to stay cold here, and it will be the Padres that will get the job done. Back the Padres on the money line.
