The St Louis Cardinals visit the Boston Red Sox to play a 3-game series at the Fenway Park. The Cardinals won their last series against the Pirates and the Red Sox beat the Athletics 2 of 3 times.
St Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals get here with a 37-28 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.7 runs and allowing 3.9 runs per game. Paul Goldschmidt leads the team with 16 home runs and batting for .347 AVG with 56 RBI so far.
Miles Mikolas leads the pitching staff with a 2.62 ERA, 66 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Cards.
Adam Wainwright (5-4, 2.84 ERA) will take the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Cardinals. Wainwright did not factor into the decision in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Reds, pitching seven innings and allowing three runs on eight hits and a walk. He had seven strikeouts. He hasn't pitched against the Red Sox since 2014.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox get to this game with a 34-30 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.7 runs and allowing 3.9 runs per game. Rafael Devers is leading the team with 16 home runs and 40 RBI while JD Martinez is batting for .351 AVG.
Nick Pivetta leads the team with 6 wins recorded with a 3.50 ERA and 72 strikeouts.
Michael Wacha (4-1, 2.33 ERA) will take the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Red Sox. Wacha didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 7-6 loss to Seattle, allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits and one walk in 4.1 innings with three strikeouts.
St. Louis are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.
St. Louis are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against Boston.
Boston are 11-3 SU in their last 14 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Boston's last 5 games at home.
The Red Sox have been unstoppable lately as they have won their last 3 series but they'll have a tough test when they face Adam Wainwright who has won the last 3 games and can pitch a complete game every time he steps in the mound. Michael Wacha is really good as well and with the under cashing in 4 of the last 5 games at home for the Red Sox I think that's the play here.
PICK: Under 9.5 (-110)
