Can Arizona Snap the Trend?

The Arizona Diamondbacks are 12-13 this season and they have alternated wins and losses over their last six games. Arizona lost game one in this series, but they did win game two by a score of 14-1 on Tuesday. Prior to this series, the Diamondbacks lost two out of three against the Giants and two out of three against the Cubs. If this alternating trend continues, the Diamondbacks are due for a loss in this game. Arizona has struggled to string wins together this season, as they have only won back to back games on three occasions.

The Arizona pitching staff has a 3.90 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP, and a .252 opponent batting average. The Diamondbacks offense has scored 148 runs with a .261 batting average and a .339 on base percentage. Ketel Marte is batting .324 with five home runs and 14 RBI’s for the Diamondbacks this season. Arizona has the highest scoring offense in the MLB and they have exploded for at least 14 runs in two of their last five games. 

Will St. Louis Grab a Series Win? 

The St. Louis Cardinals are 10-14 this year and they have lost five of their last six games. St. Louis won game one by a score of 5-3 on Monday, but they were blown out in game two on Tuesday. Prior to this series, the Cardinals were swept by the Brewers and they were out scored 16-6 in three games. St. Louis has lost three of their last four series, with the one win coming against Oakland. 

The St. Louis pitching staff has a 4.25 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and a .259 opponent batting average. The Cardinals offense has scored 82 runs with a .218 batting average and a .301 on base percentage. Nolan Arenado is batting .293 with one home run and 11 RBI’s for the Cardinals. St. Louis has actually pitched pretty well so far this season, but their offense is towards the bottom of the MLB in runs scored. The Cardinals need Arenado and Goldschmidt to produce if they are going to compete in the NL Central, where they currently trail Pittsburgh by three games and are in last place. 

Starting Pitching Matchup

Arizona is starting Jordan Montgomery, who is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.67 WHIP over 6.0 innings pitched this year. Montgomery allowed one earned run and four hits over 6.0 innings in his first outing against the Giants. St. Louis is going with Kyle Gibson, who is 1-2 with a 5.04 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP over 25.0 innings pitched this season. Gibson has been inconsistent this year, as he has had two good starts and two bad starts. I am interested to see how Montgomery continues to pitch for Arizona, while we know Kyle Gibson is a below average hurler. 

Arizona Diamondbacks vs St. Louis Cardinals Prediction

These two teams meet for the rubber match in this series, but Arizona should have all of the momentum after their 14 run outburst on Tuesday. The Diamondbacks have the best scoring offense in the MLB and now they get to face Kyle Gibson, who could be in for a long day. The Cardinals have struggled to score consistently this season and they face a pretty solid Jordan Montgomery here. For my Arizona Diamondbacks vs St. Louis Cardinals prediction, I am taking the Diamondbacks to snap the trend and grab their second win in a row.
