St. Louis Cardinals
Mikolas was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start, but he would get the no-decision as St. Louis came back to beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2.
He went seven innings giving up seven hits and one earned run while he struck out six and walked two.
In 137.1 innings of work this season, Mikolas owns a low strikeout rate (6.36 K/9), low walk rate (1.64 BB/9), low home run rate (0.59 HR/9), and a solid 76.4% LOB%.
The end-result is a 2.75 ERA to go with a slightly higher 3.26.
St. Louis has played winning baseball in the past week winning five of their seven contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .284/.360/.404 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 32 RBI.
Lopez was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start, but walked away with a no-decision as Miami went on to lose to the Philadelphia Phillies 2-5.
He went six innings giving up five hits, one earned runs, and one home run while he struck out five and walked none.
In 34.2 innings of work this season, Lopez owns a decent strikeout (7.27 K/9) to walk rate (2.34 BB/9), but owns a high home run rate (1.56 HR/9) and a lowish 73.0% LOB%.
The end-result is a high 4.67 ERA to go with a similar 4.75 FIP meaning he is what he is.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction: St. Louis takes down Miami on the road
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cardinals -1.5
St. Louis has been hitting the ball well as of late, and they hit better on the road (.757 OPS) as compared to home (.690 OPS). Miami’s lineup is slumping and Lopez has had a rough time at home where he owns a 5.60 ERA and a slash line of .296/.364/.522. I’ll back the hotter team with the better pitcher.
