St. Louis Cardinals Betting Preview

The Cardinals are coming off a series versus the New York Mets. St. Louis lost the first two games of that set, falling 4-3 on Monday and 7-5 in game two. In the Wednesday finale, the Cardinals had a rainout. That game will be made up on August 5.

For the starter job on Thursday in the opener, the Cardinals will send out Sonny Gray. So far this year Gray is 4-1 with a 0.89 ERA in five starts. Gray has 38 Ks in 30.1 innings. Over his career Gray is 102-86 with a 3.42 ERA in 284 games (275 starts).

Milwaukee Brewers Betting Preview

Over on the Brewers’ side, they took on the Kansas City Royals in their last series. Milwaukee fell 3-2 in the Monday opener of that set, but managed a 6-5 win to even things up in game two. In the Wednesday rubber match the Brewers had eight team hits in a 6-4 loss. Starter Joe Ross went 5.0 innings with three earned on three hits and two walks.

As starting pitcher for Thursday’s game, the Brewers are sending out Tobias Myers. Over three starts this year (the first three of his career), Myers is 0-2 with a 6.23 ERA and 11 strikeouts over 13.0 innings. The Brewers will take on the Pirates and Astros after this series.

Cardinals vs Brewers Injury Notes

The Cardinals placed catcher Wilson Contreras on the 10-day Injured List Wednesday. Contreras is sidelined with a fractured left forearm.

Brewers SP DL Hall (knee) has begun playing catch and is progressing in his rehabilitation but still doesn’t have a clear timeline for a return to the lineup.

St. Louis Cardinals vs Milwaukee Brewers Prediction

I’ll take a stab on the Cardinals. I could probably go either way here, though. The Cardinals should get a good showing from Gray, who is coming off 7.0 clean frames, three hits, one walk and six Ks in a win over the White Sox. As for Myers, he’s given up eight earned over his last eight innings on eight hits and four walks.

On Wednesday the Brewers gave up three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning during a breakdown in the pen. If Milwaukee gets a good showing from Myers here they should hang around but the Cardinals should also have plenty of offensive opportunities.
