As the St. Louis Cardinals try to separate themselves from the rest of the NL playoff bunch, they must first get by the lowly Milwaukee Brewers.
St. Louis Cardinals
Despite a putrid home record, the St. Louis Cardinals find themselves occupying the second Wild Card spot in the National League.
With the bats of Matt Carpenter, Aledmys Diaz and Randal Grichuk, the Red Birds’ offense ranks top-five in runs, OBP, OPS, home runs and slugging percentage.
It really doesn’t matter what the situation entails because the Cardinals always seem to be in the playoff mix as the season winds down.
Carlos Martinez will take the hill in the series opener as he looks for his 13th win of the year. Like the rest of the Cardinals, Martinez has performed much better away from Busch Stadium this year.
Away from home, Martinez is an impressive 7-1 with an ERA of 2.36. Opposing batters are hitting him for just a .207 average when he pitches on the road, so this could be a very long night for the Brewers.
The Brewers will counter with the young and incredibly lanky Zach Davies as he goes for his 11th win of the year. At 6 feet- 155 lbs., Davies hardly commands an intimidating presence on the mound.
However, he’s been surprisingly good for Milwaukee this season. He was incredible during his previous start against the Cardinals, allowing just three hits in eight innings of work.
For Milwaukee, it’s been difficult to spot many bright spots aside from Davies, and it’s why the Brewers are nearly 20 games under .500. The Brew Crew rank 23rd in runs, 26th in hits and 25th in average, so runs have been few and far between this year.
