St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis only trails the Cubs by a game for the NL Central lead. The team has used a three game win streak to put them back in position for the division lead. Pitching has been the key to success for the Cardinals as they are third in the National League in runs allowed (502). Miles Milokas (4.13 ERA), Jack Flaherty (3.72 ERA), and Dakota Hudson (4.01 ERA) have been solid in their rotation. Runs haven’t come easy on some nights for the Cardinals (518). The offense is led by Paul Goldschmidt and Marcell Ozuna. Goldschmidt has 26 homers, while Ozuna has 22 homers and 65 RBI’s in only 86 games.
On the mound for the Cardinals is Dakota Hudson. The 24-year-old is 10-6 with a 4.01 ERA on the season. Hudson has struggled over his last few outings. In his last three outings he has allowed 10 runs in 11.2 innings.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have been one of the laughing stocks in the American League. The team has a record of 43-76. The team has struggled with starting pitching all season with the exception to Brad Keller (4.09 ERA). The hitting hasn’t been much better either as they are second last in the American League in scoring. Leading the Royals offense is Whit Merrifield and Jorge Soler. Merrifield is hitting .306 with 14 homers. Soler is fifth in baseball with 35 homers. Hunter Dozier has added 22 homers and 66 RBI’s. Other than those three players there hasn’t been much to talk about in Kansas City this season.
The Royals will have Brad Keller on the mound. Keller hasn’t received much run support like most Kansas City pitchers this season. He is 7-12 with a respectable 4.09 ERA. In his last outing he allowed five runs on 10 hits in six innings against Detroit.
