St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals got a great outing from Miles Mikolas to start the week and the series against the Royals but the offense deserted them for the final 18 innings of the series and St. Louis hits the road a loser to one of the worst teams in baseball.
Two errors also cost the Cardinals in Wednesday’s 5–2 loss, one behind Michael Wacha and another behind Bud Norris. But three runs in two games won’t get it done, not even against the Royals (most of the time).
John Gant got the start last Saturday against Philadelphia and didn’t get any help from the defense then, either. He struck out seven before getting yanked with two out in the fifth.
He gave up four hits and walked two but everything was made worse by defensive misplays. Two of the five runs that came in when he was on the mound were unearned.
After these three, St. Louis starts next week in Milwaukee before welcoming the Pirates to its place for another weekend set.
The Pirates bounced back from a defeat in game one of their series with Cincinnati with a one-run win on Wednesday evening.
Clint Hurdle will send Ivan Nova to the bump on Thursday, attempting to win the series before coming home for the weekend. Pittsburgh will stay there until it goes to St. Louis next weekend; it plays Chicago in between.
The Pirates are still doing it. They’re a win ahead of St. Louis and only trail the Brewers and Cubs in the Central. It might not be a sudden fall, if they do slide at all.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction: Cardinals.
Gant is solid, despite not being very well-known or respected yet among the public. I’ll say the Cards’ offense gets back on track after the day off, though the under could be a play, too.
