St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals score the fifth most runs in the MLB at 4.9 runs per game.
They are currently tied for the final wild card spot with the Marlins.
They’ll really be looking to win this game but 21 runs over their last seven games won’t be enough especially against the Cubs.
As a team, the Cards given up just 4.3 runs per game which is tenth best in the MLB.
Luke Weaver will be looking to keep things going for the club.
He is just 22 years old, 6’2 and 170 Ibs from Florida State.
The Cubs are on fire and they score the third most runs in the league at five per game. They’ve not only won nine in a row but 12 of their last 13 games!
They haven’t been scoring that much as of late, they’ve scored just 30 runs over their last seven games but with the kind of pitching they got, they don’t really need that much scoring anyways.
The team allows just 3.4 runs per inning and Hendricks is even more stingy with his 2.17 ERA.
In his last six starts, he’s pitched shutout ball four times, gave up just one in his last outing and his worst outing he gave up just three over 5.2 innings.
He’s quite possibly the best pitcher in the majors right now.
