Kuhl was able to put in a quality start in his last outing that came against the Chicago Cubs, but unfortunately was tagged with his fourth loss of the season as they lost 0-7. He went six innings giving up four hits, one earned run, and one home run while he struck out five and walked four.
Kuhl has now put in two quality starts in a row and four of his last five have been quality starts. He has been solid with strikes (8.46 K/9) and walks (3.36 BB/9), but he has struggled containing the long ball (1.61 HR/9). Kuhl currently owns a 3.94 ERA and a high 4.78 FIP.
Pittsburgh has been playing losing baseball in the last week as they have won just two of their seven contests. During that time their lineup is slashing .254/.290/.414 to go with 20 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.
St. Louis Cardinals
It was a short outing for Weaver in his last start as he was tagged with his fifth loss of the season against the Milwaukee Brewers. He could only go four innings giving up five hits, four earned runs, and one home run while he struck out three and walked two.
After putting in two quality starts in a row, it wasn’t surprising with how inconsistent Weaver has been that he’d have a doozy. He owns a 8.18 K/9, 3.09 BB/9, 0.93 HR/9, and an average .295 BABIP, and although he owns a 4.63 ERA, his FIP is sitting at 3.72.
St. Louis has been playing winning baseball in the last week winning four of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .269/.320/.424 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 32 RBI.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction: St. Louis outlasts Pittsburgh
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Total
Weaver has been hard to hit against at home this season where he owns a .208/.281/.356 slash line. Kuhl has been pitching some solid baseball in the month of May where he owns a 3.44 ERA and a .208/.297/.443 slash line. I like St. Louis in this spot, but it is hard to trust Weaver, so I’ll be backing the under.
