St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals are right on the cusp. As this is being written they and the Dodgers are fighting for that final NL playoff ticket. Matt Carpenter was super hot for a while but he has not hit a homer since the calendar turned to September. As they look to close things out they need his production and energy.
St. Louis had won six straight Austin Gomber starts before his last two. In his last outing he was hit hard in a very critical game against the Dodgers. Hard to say if it was “hitting the wall”, or that they now “have a book” on the rookie. One thing to love is that he keeps the ball in the park though. Only two homers allowed over nine starts.
The Braves probably could have wrapped up everything over the weekend but they dropped a couple against the Nats. This series has some juice but really the visit from the Phillies is the clincher. They have a good cushion and are unlikely to be caught even though I do not like their chances of being a threat in the playoffs.
Since they have the lead and are just trying to get through the season the Braves might be one of those teams where the starting pitchers are. This could be Anibal Sanchez – ye he is still around and enjoying a renaissance with the return to the National League. Things got really ugly in Detroit the last few season so it was easy to discount him.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
I think this one is going to come off about even. In that case I will probably go with the Cards and hope that Gombe bounces back.
