St. Louis Cardinals
After a quality 2019 start, St. Louis enters tonight’s contest vs. Atlanta on a downward trend. The Cardinals have lost nine-of-eleven since May 2.
To help re-ignite positive momentum, St. Louis sends Michael Wacha to the mound tonight. Wacha is 3-0 this season and sports a 5.35 ERA in 37 innings pitched.
The 27-year-old former All Star is 11-2 since opening day 2018.
While the Cardinals score 5.02 runs per game, good for tenth overall in MLB, St. Louis’ bats have cooled in the team’s last five losses while averaging a shade under 2 runs per game.
Further, All Star Matt Carpenter’s struggles continue as the 33-year-old hits a Mendoza-esque .201 through 40 contests.
Conversely, teammates Jose Martinez (.339 BA) and Paul DeJong (.321 BA) lead St. Louis’ #5 ranked .260 batting average. Marcell Ozuna (11 HR, 37 RBI) paces the Cardinal’s offensive output.
Up and down all year, Atlanta is back up after winning its recent series vs. Arizona, 3-1. Over that span, the Braves timely offense bolstered a quality starting rotation.
Tonight, Atlanta opens with Mike Soroka. Soroka is 3-1 this season, with an excellent 1.21 ERA.
The Braves’ .261 team batting average is good for first in the National League. However, Atlanta’s 4.78 runs per game ranks just #15 leaguewide as the Braves are leaving plenty of men on base.
Already an underdog for their series-opener vs. fumbling St. Louis, Atlanta will need to generate runs to overcome the Vegas consensus.
