St. Louis and Chicago continue their NL Central series, as St. Louis looks to pick up more ground in the division.
The Cardinals got things started on the right foot after a 3-2 win on Monday night.
St. Louis Cardinals
The gap is going to be tough to make up, but if the Cardinals want to put a fight up in the NL Central, beating the Cubs in head to head games is the perfect way.
St. Louis comes in off a 3-2 win to start the series off, but the deficit is still 11.5 games between the two teams.
The Cardinals win snapped a 5 game losing streak, which is something this team cannot afford to do again.
They send out Adam Wainwright here, who is finally improving and looking like the pitcher from last season. Wainwright has compiled an ERA of 2.50 over his last 6 starts.
The RH has had even more success at Wrigley Field in his career. He currently sits with an ERA of 3.33 and is 9-1 when pitching at the historic ballpark.
Chicago has a lot of room for error after their hot start to the season.
The Cubs did however receive some bad news on Monday after Dexter Fowler was placed on the DL. Fowler has been battling a hamstring injury that just never seemed to heal to 100%. They recalled RHP Carl Edwards Jr to help boost the bullpen.
Chicago will send out Jason Hammel here, who continues to do his thing. Hammel sits with a record of 7-2 while holding an ERA of 2.26.
Hammel has also dominated at home. He’s gone 3-0 with a 2.03 inside the confines of Wrigley Field.
