St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals are blowing an NL Central lead as their lead has gone down to two games. Both Milwaukee and Chicago are closing in on the Cardinals with time left in the season. The bad news for St. Louis is that they play the Cubs seven times to end the season.
St. Louis has relied on some great pitching.
The team ranks second in the National League in runs allowed with 611. Guys like Jack Flaherty (3.25 ERA), Dakota Hudson (3.35 ERA), and Adam Wainwright (4.00 ERA) have pitched well.
The Cardinals will go with Jack Flaherty for Thursday night’s matchup against Chicago. Flaherty is 10-8 with a 3.25 ERA this season. In 21.1 innings against the Cubs they have allowed nine runs.
Chicago has their shot of not just making the playoffs but winning the division. If they can take around of 7 against the Cardinals they will be in position to do so.
The Cubs are a team most teams would like to avoid as they have a strong offense which ranks fifth in the NL, and some solid pitching.
Guys like Kyle Hendricks (3.26 ERA), Yu Darvish (4.02 ERA), and Cole Hamels (3.92 ERA) have had success.
Javier Baez is having a strong season with a .281 average, 29 homers, and 85 RBIs. Kyle Schwarber (37 homers), and Kris Bryant (31 homers) lead them in the power department.
On the mound for Chicago is Kyle Hendricks. Hendricks is 11-9 with a 3.26 ERA this season. In his last outing against the Reds he allowed seven runs in 2.2 innings.
