Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
This matchup is interesting to me. Both pitchers are average at best and the lineups aren’t super strong.
I’m taking the Cardinals in this one, mostly because of the home field advantage.
The Cardinals lineup will continue to stay hot with their veterans and Diaz.
