The Cardinals have been on fire lately winning 5 of their last 6 games and have climbed to #4 in offense in the league with 4.78 runs per game. For this game they'll send Mike Mikolas to the mound who's coming from a great start vs Brewers where he allowed 2 runs across 8 innings pitched and allowed also 2 runs in 7 innings vs Dbacks earlier this season. The Dbacks have played good at home with a 32-29 record but will have a rookie on the mound against one of the hottest offenses.
