St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals picked up an important Sunday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers by a score of 5-0. This win moves the Cardinals to 5.5 behind the Chicago Cubs in the National League Central, but more importantly it gives them the same record as the Dodgers, which is tied for the second wild card spot.
Miles Mikolas will take the mound for the Cardinals today as he looks for his 16th win of the year. Mikolas is 15-4 and has an earned run average of 2.99. He has been one of if not the best starter for the Cardinals, and the Cardinals to play very when he gets the start. Look for Mikolas to shut down the Braves early and hope for some run support.
The Braves dropped 2 out of 3 to the Washington Nationals this past weekend, putting their lead in the National League East at 6.5 games over the Phillies. With only 13 games remaining, the Braves cannot afford to slip up at all, especially since they still play Philadelphia 7 more times. The Braves really to win 2 out of 3 against the Cardinals at the worst to help pad their division lead.
Mike Foltynewicz enters this game with a record of 11-9 and his earned run average sits at 2.66. Folty pitched a complete game last time on mound, allowing 1 run on 6 hits and striking out 7. He also only issued 1 walk, which is a good sign for the Braves considering they have had many walk issues this year. Depending how Mike ends the season, he should get consideration to be the Braves #1 pitcher going into a potential playoff series.
