San Francisco Giants
The Giants are 9 games under .500 with 9 games to play. It is unlikely that they will go 9-0 to complete a .500 season, but they can at least try and be a spoiler to the Cardinals post season hopes. Going into the off season, the Giants will need to focus on getting their stars back to full health, while also evaluating their younger talent to help bolster their starting rotation and bullpen.
The Giants will start their rookie right-hander, Dereck Rodriguez, to face off with a Cardinals lineup who is sizzling right now. Rodriguez has been one of the top rookies in the Giants clubhouse and should have a permanent spot in the rotation next year. He enters this game with a 6-4 record and his ERA is 2.30. More recently, Rodriguez is 2-1 in his last seven appearances on the road (one of which came out of the bullpen), and has an ERA of 2.58.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals sit 1.5 games ahead of Colorado for the second wild-card spot heading into the last week or so of the season. The Cardinals have to play the Brewers and the Cubs to end the season, so these games with San Francisco are very important. Given that the Giants are under .500, the Cardinals should be able to squeak out a victory.
Veteran, Adam Wainwright will take the mound in game two of this series. He has a 2-3 record on the year and his ERA is 3.72. Wainwright went 6 shutout innings in his last start, so it seems he is hitting his stride going into the end of the season.
