The Royals and Cardinals have played a low-scoring series so far, which is to be expected considering these are two of the lower-scoring teams in the majors in terms of run production per game. With that said, Carlos Martinez goes for the Cardinals here and while his ERA did lower after his last start, it was only because one of his five runs allowed were earned, as he still allowed five runs in 3.2 innings. Danny Duffy also gave up six runs, five earned, in 3.2 innings in his last start and in his last start at home, Duffy allowed six runs in six innings. Maybe that means both starters wake up and show some life but until I see it, I’m taking the over as my premium pick for this game.
