Any chance of the Pirates being a factor down the stretch might have evaporated when they started the second half with four straight losses to division opponents (heading into Tuesday). Josh Bell is struggling too and as he goes so goes the team. He is now under .300 and there is nobody around to pick up the offense for him really.
Chris Archer looked pretty good in his return to action striking out a season high 10 Cubs in a loss. They are still not getting what they want from him but maybe they can deal him and get back a haul. You don’t hear his name a ton like that this season but another good start and we might. He has not seen the Cards since the first of April – 5 shutout innings.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cards have lost just once since the All-Star break including a win in the series opener on Monday. That has boosted them to second place as this is being written on Tuesday. This injury list does not look good though as it has their best bat, Marcell Ozuna, their biggest disappointment Matt Carpenter and catcher Yadier Molina.
Daniel Ponce de Leon has been really good for St. Louis. He has mostly started and the Cards are 301 in his four starts. He is super hard to hit and he keeps the ball in the ballpark. As long as he keeps that up he is going to be in good shape. St. Louis took a major bullpen his in losing Hicks for the season but they have some depth there.
