The St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at American Familey Field.
Cardinals Need Offense to Find Success
The Cardinals offense has really struggled heading into this game and it’s going to be no different in this game. On Sunday the Padres pitching gave up 12 runs an the offense only managed two runs. The pitching has been an issue but more consistent has been the lack of scoring. The Cardinals are averaging 4.44 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.09 runs per game. The offense is arnked 18th while hte pitching is ranked 24th. On the mound for the Cardinals will be Zach Thompson who sits with a 5-7 record and an ERA of 4.57.
Brewers Lose Series Against the Marlins
The Brewers struggled in the last series against the Marlins losing two of the three games. On Sunday the Brewers only scored one run and that led to the defeat. The Brewers are averaging 4.53 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.03 runs per game. The offense is ranked 17th while the pitching is ranked 1st. On the mound for the Brewers will be Wade Miley who sits with a 9-4 record and an ERA of 3.20. In his last start against the Cardinals he went six innings giving up three hits and zero runs. The Brewers did clinch the NL Central on Tuesdya night so there has to be some concern about a hangover.
Shane’s Free Pick
Miley is coming off a start where he gave up zero runs and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. I don’t trust the Cardinals offense and their lack of scoring is going to really get to him here. Look for the Cardinals to score only a run or two total, and this is going to be an easy victory for the Brewers. Back the Brewers on the run line to cash here.
