The Cleveland Indians (31-26) take on the St. Louis Cardinals (31-29) in the opener of a quick two-game series on Tuesday night from Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri.
These two teams have yet to meet this year but did meet three times last season due to the COVID schedule, with Cleveland taking two of three games away from home.
The Indians don’t have the most imposing lineup, but they have continued to win games and stay in the AL Central race. They’re currently 4 games behind the Chicago White Sox.
It took a few weeks for him to get going, but Jose Ramirez hasn’t missed a beat for the Cleveland offense this season and is leading the team across all five major categories.
His batting average (.262) is a little low to be leading a contending team, but that can change quickly over the summer months. From a power perspective, he has 13 home runs and 31 RBI, while his OBP sits just shy of .350 and has contributed 53 hits.
St. Louis Cardinals
To say it’s been a rough start to June would be an understatement for the Cardinals so far. St. Louis has lost 5 games in a row, and as if that wasn’t bad enough, have watched as the Brewers and Cubs have strung together runs to take control over the division.
The Cardinals’ issue is that they now rank in the bottom half of baseball, if not worse, across nearly every offensive category, which seems out of place given the lineup and power that they have.
Off-season acquisition, Nolan Arenado, leads the team with both a .287 batting average and 40 RBI, but the power from him in the middle of the lineup just hasn’t been what was expected, as he only has 11 home runs so far on the season.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Indians are 31-26 overall
- Indians are 17-14 on the road
- Cardinals are 31-29 overall
- Cardinals are 15-14 at home
- Cardinals are 0-5 in their last 5 games overall
Free Cleveland Indians vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
This series shapes up perfectly for the Indians to come in and look to take two wins against a team whose confidence is low in the Cardinals, losers of five games in a row heading into Tuesday.
Bieber will be on the mound for Cleveland and isn’t exactly a friendly sight for a team that is struggling to find wins in the Cardinals.
Expect the Indians to come out with the win behind a strong showing for Bieber, as he gets the better of Martinez.
