Kansas City Royals
A year ago on this day, Kansas City was in St. Louis and it actually had two fewer wins than it does currently, with an equal number of losses.
Homer Bailey lost for the first time in May after winning his first two starts this month. He gave up eight hits and six runs before the Rangers dispatched him in the fifth inning.
Most of the Cardinals have at least some experience against Bailey from his time in the NL Central. No team has beaten him more in his career than St. Louis. He’s 6–15 career against the Birds with a 5.56 career ERA in over 145 innings.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals won on Saturday to set up a rubber match in Texas on Sunday, only to lose in extra-innings, 5–4. It was St. Louis’ fifth consecutive series loss. The Cardinals have now lost thirteen of their last seventeen games.
The Birds got six good innings out of Jack Flaherty, who gave up just four hits and two runs. Andrew Miller, though, gave up a game-tying home run to pinch-hitter Danny Santana in the eighth inning and Jordan Hicks, who had already thrown a shutout inning, couldn’t hold a one-run lead in the tenth.
Miller has been a problem for St. Louis this season, with an 88. ERA+ and a WHIP that suggests it hasn’t been a run of unlucky clutch hits from the opponent. Miller is giving up nearly a hit per inning and well over five walks per nine innings.
Michael Wacha has just about the same numbers, but he’s 3–1. He lost for the first time this year in his last outing, despite just giving up one earned run in Atlanta.
