St. Louis Cardinals
Key series this weekend. St. Louis has decided to go with youth but at the same time they are one Pittsburgh like hot streak from putting a lot of pressure on the division. I think their lineup is good enough but they need someone to get hot and carry them the way Matt Carpenter did a couple of weeks ago.
Austin Gomber has only made one start this season but it was pretty good – 6 innings with 6 Ks at Cincy. The Cards won that game but he did not get the decision. The big lefty has only one previous appearance against the Pirates, his MLB debut, three shutout relief innings.
Love the aggressiveness of the Pirates but their recent play has only got them in the conversation. They kind of need another hot streak and beating up on the Cardinals is nice place to start. Corey Dickerson shoudl be returning to the lineup for this one and they need his bat.
Ivan Nova has never been as good as when the Pirates picked him up for the stretch run in 2016. Maybe the positive energy around the club urges him to better performance. The Pirates have won 5 of his last 6 starts and his ERA is two runs lower at home. Good spot in this one.
