The St Louis Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates will play the 4th game series at the Busch Stadium on Wednesday. The Cardinals beat the Pirates on both games of the Tuesday double-header and are now 8-1 against the Pirates this season.
St Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals get here with a 37-27 record and have won 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.72 runs and allowing 3.98 runs per game. Paul Goldschmidt leads the team with 16 home runs and batting for .349 AVG with 56 RBI so far.
A. Wainwright leads the pitching staff with a 2.73 ERA, 48 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the Cards.
Jack Flaherty (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will take the mound in the 4th game of the series for the Cardinals. Flaherty has been out all season while recovering from shoulder inflammation. He is 8-1 with an ERA of 2.22 and 74 strikeouts in 11 appearances against the Pirates in his career.
The Pirates get to this game with a 24-37 record and have lost 9 games in a row. The team is averaging 3.4 runs and allowing 5 runs per game. Ke'Bryan Hayes is batting for .277 AVG and has 21 RBI. Bryan Reynolds leads in home runs with 10.
Jose Quintana leads the pitching staff with a 3.53 ERA, 50 strikeouts and 1 win recorded for the Pirates.
Roansy Contreras (1-1, 2.57 ERA) will take the mound in the 4th game of the series for the Pirates. Contreras (1-1) took the loss against Atlanta after allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk in 4.2 innings. He struck out seven batters.
Pittsburgh are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games against St. Louis.
Pittsburgh are 0-7 SU in their last 7 games on the road.
St. Louis are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games at home.
St. Louis are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games when playing at home against Pittsburgh.
The Cardinals are on fire and continue to dominate the Pirates this season beating them in 8 of the last 9 head to head games. The Pirates are on 9 game losing streak and they have struggled on the road. The Cardinals will have Flaherty back in the mound after being out the whole season, he will have a 60 pitches limit but I think that's enough for the Cards to beat the Pirates again. Take the Cardinals.
