The Cardinals and Giants continue their crucial 4 game series Friday night in San Francisco.
Playoff implications for the Wild Card and NL West for the Giants are all on the line here.
St. Louis Cardinals
While it was just a matter of when not if, the St. Louis Cardinals were eliminated from playoff the NL Central on Thursday night.
St. Louis fell in the series opener to the Giants, thus clinching the Central for the Cubs.
However, the main focus remains the Wild Card for the Cardinals. They currently sit just 1.0 game back of the Mets for the 2nd Wild Card spot and 2.0 games back of these Giants.
They’ll send out Luke Weaver here, who comes in off a start where he threw 6.0 innings of 1 run ball.
Weaver has 39 strikeouts to just 8 walks since being promoted from Triple A.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants currently hold the top spot in the Wild Card, but still have their sights set on the NL West.
They find themselves just 4.0 games back of the Dodgers and still well within striking distance. The Giants come in off a victory on Thursday night 6-2 as Hunter Pence continues to tear the cover off the ball.
Pence drilled a 2 run home run on Thursday as he is 17 for his last 35.
LH Matt Moore gets the ball here, who comes in off a start where he matched his career high in strikeouts with 11.
Moore has won 3 of his last 4 decisions, but is just 3-4 with a 4.05 ERA since joining the Giants rotation.
Look for Moore to really try to work this Cardinals lineup inside, as he is at his best when he can keep hitters off the plate.
