The St. Louis Cardinals are starting to look like real contenders and they will now look to continue on with the strong start here against the Milwaukee Brewers who are having a decent start of their own.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals are coming into this series off the back of a clean sweep of the Colorado Rockies, and although the Rockies are looking like they are going through a rebuilding phase, that series should give this team plenty of momentum coming into Wednesday’s contest.
The Cards are getting the job done with the pitching unit and the batting unit almost evenly, as they rank close to the middle of the majors in both batting and pitching categories and given the talent they have on this team you can see why.
They have great hitters like Tommy Edman and Nolan Arenado, as well as a rock solid pitching staff that includes today’s starter John Gant who is really getting the job done so far coming into this game with an ERA of just 2.15, but he will be hoping for more run support, as he only has a 2-3 record despite pitching so well.
The Brew-Crew are also coming into this game off the back of a couple of nice wins over the Marlins and they really did need those wins, as they had gone on a 6 game skid before picking up those key wins.
We knew that the Brewers had a decent pitching staff coming into this year and if they were going to be successful they would need to lean on that, but no one could have predicted they would be so utterly dominant and now, despite a mediocre batting lineup, this team comes in here with a respectable 19-16 record.
One of the guys who has been key to the outstanding performances of this pitching staff has been Brandon Woodruff who will head to the hill for the Brewers here, and that should give this team the clear advantage on the mound, as he enters with a stellar ERA of 1.73 and he has already racked up over 50 strikeouts.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
The fact that the Brewers have Woodruff going to the hill here gives them just too much of an edge, and I think they get the win off the back of yet another quality start from another member of their fantastic rotation.
Also, despite Gant coming in here with solid numbers, I do not think they will last long term, as I see him as being a solid pitcher, but I do not see him as being elite like his stats would suggest at the moment.
