St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals got back to .500 with a 10-0 win over the Braves on Friday. Lance Lynn threw six clean innings with plenty of run support and three guys did impeccable mop-up work out of the ‘pen to hold the shutout together.
The Birds’ lineup looked a little different than it has for the first part of the season. Dexter Fowler is out after landing on his shoulder when he tried to make a diving catch on Thursday. His replacement, Tommy Pham, hit his first homer of the season.
Aldemys Diaz slid from the two spot in the lineup down to six. He responded with a 4-for-4 night that included a walk.
Matt Carpenter stayed in the three-hole and smacked his fifth home runs of 2017.
Mike Leake will start tonight for the Cardinals. He’s been terrific, a 1.35 ERA in 33 innings on the season.
Julio Teheran hasn’t been so terrific. He started strong in his first three outings but has since had two clunkers. He gave up seven in four innings against the Nationals, which is awfully forgivable.
But he gave up six in his most recent start to the Yo-less New York Mets.
He will look to get back on track this evening and I don’t see why he shouldn’t.
Except for those walks. We’re not used to seeing Teheran walk as many as he has so far.
He’s walked at least three in all but one of his starts this season and has alternated between walking three or four in his last four.
That will have to change against a St. Louis team more than willing to take ball four.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction: Leake keeps rolling, so do the Cardinals.
They’re at .500, so why not keep jumping hurdles? Mike Leake has been great and the Braves’ offense shouldn’t provide him much of a challenge.
Meanwhile, Teheran’s control problems are concerning.
