St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals couldn’t solve the Atlanta pitching staff over the weekend and lost all three games at home to the first place Braves.
Tommy Pham hit a three-run homer that nearly led the Birds all the way back against Atlanta’s bullpen after Mike Foltynewicz had it working for six innings on Sunday. The comeback came up a run short, however.
Jack Flaherty followed up a 7-inning, 13-strikeout performance two starts ago with his third loss of the year in his most recent outing against the Indians. He’s 3–3 in 11 starts and St. Louis actually has a losing record in those games, despite maintaining a WHIP that’s hovering just over 1.00.
The Giants wore out Arizona’s pitching staff over the weekend in the desert to earn a three-game sweep. The D’Backs had won seven of eight before the brooms.
The Snakes are 10–7 in Zack Greinke’s 17 starts this season and they ought to be better than that. Greinke has been steady as ever, posting a strong strikeout rate (9.4 per nine innings) and a WHIP just over 1.00.
He lost his only start against the Cardinals this season. That was in his second outing of the year and he gave up five runs in five innings. He didn’t walk any but St. Louis had nine hits.
The injuries and offensive struggles have caught up to the D’Backs. Steven Souza will be back soon (before AJ Pollock at least). He’s key in the second half because he’s yet to even get a chance to produce this season in between the injury he suffered before the season began and the one he’s currently on the way back from. He had a 120 OPS+ in over 600 plate appearances for the Rays last season.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction: it stays low-scoring.
I really like both these starters. Plus, neither offense gives either of them any run support anyway.
