Colorado Rockies vs St. Louis Cardinals Prediction

I’ll probably just stay with the Cardinals here. The line’s a little too thick to mess with, though. Lynn is doing pretty well lately despite a tepid 1-1 record over his last three starts. In that trio Lynn has given up just one earned run on 10 hits and five walks total over 16.0 innings. In his most recent outing Lynn went just 4.0 innings in a hefty bullpen game.

On Thursday the Cardinals had a decent offensive effort with eight hits and six walks. St. Louis couldn’t find much life on the scoreboard, though. The Cardinals will likely need to hang a few runs Friday but I think they’re up for it.
