An NL battle takes place between a contender vying for a wildcard spot and a rebuilding team that is already out of the playoff picture.
San Diego Padres
Allstar Wil Myers is putting together a magnificent season as a “post-hype” top prospect finally realizing his potential. On the year, he has been a stud hitter with 20 homers, 61 RBI, a .355 OBP and 16 stolen bases.
Since returning, Yangervis Solarte has been a nice find, with 9 homers and a .290 average.
The other main component of the offense, Matt Kemp, is doing what he always does and may be a trade candidate to a contender.
Colin Rea will be on the bump for the Padres and the rookie holds a 4.95 ERA and 1.43 WHIP on the year with a 5-3 record.
He’ll face a tough challenge in St. Louis against a Cardinals team that has scored the 3rd most runs in baseball with 469, one behind the Cubs for second overall.
St. Louis Cardinals
As stated, the Card’s offense has continued to be a force this year, with a collective .260 average and 123 homers.
The injury to Matt Carpenter certainly hurts the Cardinals overall (punt intended), as he led the team in OBP at .420 and was second in runs with 56.
The organization has enough talent and depth to maintain with him out of the lineup, receiving nice contributions from recent recall Tommy Pham.
Carlos Martinez is a nice young pitcher and has found his rhythm as a true MLB starter after beginning his career in the bullpen.
He leads the team in ERA at 2.85 and has a 8-6 record with 91 strikeouts and a 1.16 WHIP.

Free San Diego Padres vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
I think San Diego’s strong second half start gets a reality check in this one, with a powerful Cardinals’ offense facing a young rookie pitcher who is still trying to find his groove.

Martinez should be able to curb the Padres.
