St. Louis Cardinals
The Cards head into this weekend series with the Cubs just a game and a half behind the Brewers for the NL Central lead. Lance Lynn will get the nod and he has struggled in his last four appearances.
He is 0-2 with two no decisions and has given up 11 total earned runs during that span. Don’t expect a strong outing from him against a dangerous Cubs lineup.
Matt Carpenter is normally a dangerous hitter in the middle of the Cards lineup, but is on a cold streak as his average has dropped to under .230 on the year. He is 2-16 in the last 4 games. Can he break out of the slump against a division rival?
John Lackey has also struggled in recent outings, giving up 5 ER in each of the last two starts and 3 total home runs. Lackey has racked up a good number of strikeouts and should be able to turn things around in this one.
Kris Bryant has not hit the ball well at all during the Cubs losing streak, and has just one four bagger in the last 10 games. Facing off against Lynn should help get him back in a groove and I expect a 2 RBI game from the All-Star.
