Harvey was hit up in his last outing but managed to keep the game respectable, while he got the no-decision as Cincinnati would later go on to lose to the Chicago Cubs 7-8. He went 5.2 innings giving up nine hits and two earned runs while he struck out four and walked one.
In 86.1 innings of work, Harvey owns a low 6.67 K/9 and 2.29 BB/9, while he has struggled containing the long ball (1.36 HR/9) and stranding base runners (69.8% LOB%). The end-result is a 4.80 ERA and an even better 4.58 FIP.
Cincinnati has played mediocre baseball in the past week as they won three of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .282/.369/.426 to go with 15 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.
St. Louis Cardinals
Martinez was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start and picked up his sixth win of the season after St. Louis took down the San Francisco Giants 3-2. He went seven innings giving up six hits and one earned run while he struck out three and walked none.
In 85.2 innings, Martinez owns a decent 8.72 K/9, a high 4.73 BB/9, a low 0.32 HR/9, and a solid 75.9% LOB%. The end-result is a 3.05 ERA, but a high 3.57 FIP meaning that his defense has made him look better than what his 3.05 ERA would indicate.
St. Louis has played mediocre baseball in the past week as they won three of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .284/.351/.442 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 36 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cardinals -1.5 & Cardinals OVER Team Total
Martinez is slowly getting back into form, while Harvey almost imploded last outing, but managed to keep his cool. This time around, I expect St. Louis’ hot lineup to actually knock in the runs. Back the home team and the better pitcher to cover the run line.
