The St. Louis Cardinals have been a surprisingly decent team after a season where they simply could not find their rhythm, but things will be tough here on Wednesday as they take on a strong Chicago White Sox team at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals are 3 and 3 in their last 6 games so they are not exactly streaking at the moment, but you get the feeling that this team will be in and around the playoff spots come September and if they are able to make the playoffs who knows what they could achieve from there.
The pickup of Nolan Arenado certainly has not been a bust, as the former Colorado Rockie is proving that it was not just the elevation keeping his stats high, as the slugger is hitting .284 with 10 home runs and 32 RBI.
The pitching has also been pretty decent for the St. Louis Cardinals with their bullpen showing up in a big way on multiple occasions this year and if they want to be a contender deep into September they will need the bullpen to stay strong.
John Gant will get the start here against the White Sox and it certainly is a tough spot for him against the White Sox, but it is important to remember that the White Sox hit lefty pitching much better then righties, so he may very well be in a good spot to put forward a quality start here on Wednesday.
Chicago White Sox
The scary thing about the Chicago White Sox is that both the batting lineup and the offense are humming at this point, and outside of the Yermin Mercedes controversy they have gone about their business under the radar so far and with the way they have been playing lately they could be a dark horse contender to win the title.
Yermin Mercedes has been unreal hitting .353, but he is by no means the only guy on offense who is contributing in a big way, as guys like Jose Abreu are also having outstanding seasons chipping in with 9 home runs of his own which leads the team.
Carlos Rodon is the projected starter here for the White Sox and he has been unreal so far this year with an ERA of 1.27 which is one of the best in all of baseball and he has been able to turn those efforts into an impressive 5-1 record.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
I would take the under here, as I think Giolito will have no problem running through this Cardinals batting order and I can see John Gant having plenty of success, as the White Sox are far superior against lefties. The total is also listed at 8.5 which does seem a bit high for this situation, so there is some decent line value in this spot as well.
