After toppling San Francisco Wednesday night, Atlanta hopes to sustain momentum today vs. backsliding St. Louis.
Atlanta is 8-3 in its past 11 games and is making a serious run toward the NL East’s top spot. Mike Foltynewicz takes the mound this evening after a semi-redemptive May 19 performance where he gave up just three hits over six innings. Although, two of those hits were home runs as the Braves lost 3-2 vs. Milwaukee.
This season, following an All Star 2018 campaign, Foltynewicz has struggled while garnering an 0-3 record and 6.91 ERA. Further, St. Louis blitzed Foltynewicz May 14 and tagged the RHP for seven hits, 8 earned runs and 3 home runs during a 14-3 win.
Following Foltynewicz’s painful outing, Atlanta rallied to take the next two games of a three-game set against the Cardinals.
And while the Braves are streaking, and have found offensive success, it’s still tough to forget that May 14 disaster.
St. Louis Cardinals
Having lost eight-of-eleven, St. Louis enjoyed an explosive 10-3 win over Kansas City Wednesday night to split the teams’ series at one game apiece. The Cardinals rest Thursday before sending 2018 NL win leader Miles Mikolas to the hill Friday night.
This season, Mikolas is 4-4 with a 4.88 ERA. Mikolas has taken two straight defeats while giving up nine hits and seven earned runs in just one inning during a recent 7-3 loss vs. Texas.
Ofdensively sporadic, St. Louis will look for another high-octane scoring burst as it opens another series against Atlanta.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
The Braves are the better team coming into tonight’s contest. That stated, it’s still hard to forget how easily St. Louis knocked Foltynewicz off the mound when they last met.
Again, the Cardinals tend to score runs in bunches. And based on recent head-to head trends I’ll take the Cardinals tonight in a reasonably high-scoring affair.
It’s also worth noting the Cardinals are 20-6 in Mikolas’ previous 26 starts.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick:
Coming off a day’s rest, St. Louis will unload early and Atlanta won’t quite be able to keep pace in this NL matchup.
