St. Louis Cardinals vs Miami Marlins Prediction

I’ll stay with the Cardinals I suppose. Lynn hasn’t been spectacular over his last two outings, though; he’s given up seven earned in 8.1 innings in that pair. As for Munoz, he’s coming off 6.0 clean frames in a no-decision versus the Mets but had 10 earned in 8.2 innings prior to that.

On Monday the Cardinals got a great start from Gray and only had to use four pitchers total in a lengthy game. The Marlins, conversely, used eight different arms to finish. St. Louis should be in better shape pitching-wise Tuesday if Lynn can set the table.
