Tuesday night will be the second game of a three games set and the Red Birds have been making some noise as of late.
Until the 9th inning Sunday night against the Giants, it was starting to look like there was a real possibility of the Cardinals missing the postseason this year.
They were able to score two runs during the 9th to win the game and are now only a game behind San Francisco for the second National League Wild Card spot.
The Rockies are making a solid case for the spoiler reputation this season after giving both Dodgers and the Giants all they could handle it recently.
They will look to begin the series with a win in Colorado Tuesday night.
The Rockies will start Jorge De La Rosa on the mound Tuesday night as they look to add to there winning streak.
As of Monday morning, Colorado had won three in a row and were finally within a handful of wins from being a .500 team.
De La Rosa will have his work cut out for him against St. Louis. He has an ERA of 5.17 throughout his last seven starts. His record is 1-1 during the 38.1 innings of work.
St. Louis Cardinals
This could just be the toughest start of the season for Adam Wainwright who will take the mound for the Cardinals who are not only battling the tough lineup of the Rockies, but will also be in a fight against the thin Denver air.
Wainwright has been everything accept consistent lately, allowing only one earned run in a start just to follow it up with a four run performance.
His last start was against the Giants and just to be polite, I will say that he gave a poor performance.
Wainwright has been known as a clutch pitcher in the past so the added pressure of a heated Wild Card race shouldn’t add too much stress.
His current record of 11-9 with a 4.51 ERA is something to brag about when you consider his horrible start to the season in 2016.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
I mentioned earlier that the Cardinals have been making some noise and I look for them to get even louder Tuesday night.
There is still baseball left to play but St. Louis needs to take advantage of playing a couple games against Colorado.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Seattle ML and game total under 11.5
Wainwright has been back and forth lately, being great on the mound one night and looking like a minor league pitcher the next. He is do for a solid outing and Coors Field could be used to strengthen him for a postseason push.
The Rockies will make it a game, but I think the need to win to stay alive in the Wild Card race pushes St. Louis over Colorade
