Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers are getting production from their young players, who now makeup the heart of their lineup. Cody Bellinger has 11 home runs and 29 RBI in 118 ABs since being called up in May, the latter stat leading the club.
Superstar shortstop, Corey Seager, has 7 HR and a .285 average thus far. Justin Turner is continuing to get on base with a .379 average and a .453 OBP to set the table.
Alex Wood has been excellent since joining the rotation, putting together a 1.69 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP this year with 8 quality starts in 10 tries. Wood owns a 60:15 K/BB ratio in just 48.0 innings pitched.
St. Louis Cardinals
Matt Carpenter’s rise to ascension has been prototypical of the “Cardinals way,” seemingly coming out of nowhere as an unheralded prospect to become a star.
Carpenter leads the team with 9 homers and 27 RBI on the season. Jedd Gyorko has also had a strong start to the year with a .316 average and 8 homers.
Taking the mound will be the true staff ace, Carlos Martinez, who has a 3.32 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP on the year with 71 Ks in 65 innings.
The young flamethrower is coming off of a nine strikeout game at Colorado, where he allowed three earned runs and took the loss; he’ll look to even his season record at 4-4.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
Two talented pitchers will take the mound against opposing offenses that differ a great deal. Carlos Martinez will face a Dodgers’ team that has scored the fourth most Runs in the MLB this season, whereas Alex Wood will face the 25th ranked St. Louis team.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 8.0
I trust the two starters to keep runs to a minimum in the pitcher friendly Busch Stadium. Alex Wood has been virtually unhittable of late, and Car-Mart has the skills to twirl a gem at any point.
