San Francisco Giants vs St. Louis Cardinals Prediction

I’ll stay with the Cardinals, but I could go either way. Gray hasn’t been too bad over his last two outings. He’s 1-0 in that pair with three earned on nine hits and three walks in 14.2 combined frames. As for Webb, he’s been pretty solid as well with seven earned over his last 20.0 innings in three starts.

On Saturday the Cardinals got a couple of sizable offensive efforts in the victory, specifically from Alec Burleson (two homers; three runs; five RBI) and Paul Goldschmidt (homer; two RBI). Miles Mikolas (6.0 innings; four earned) was a little choppy in the beginning but overall it was a nice pitching effort. I like St. Louis to keep it going Sunday.
