St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals bounced back from their 1–0 defeat vs. San Francisco to take the fourth and final game of the series, 10–0, and leave home 3–1 series winners.
Dakota Hudson gave up one hit in six innings to win for the 15th time this season. He both walked and struck out two batters. Genesis Cabrera went the final three innings for his first career save.
Paul DeJong hit his 26th home run of the season in the victory and Rangel Ravelo hit the first of his career, pinch-hitting for DeJong. Congratulations to the 27-year-old from Havana, Cuba.
Gone are the days of Adam Wainwright posting WHIP numbers around 1.00. He hasn’t been any better than 1.40 since his Tommy John but he’s going to make his 27th start and soon reach 150 innings.
Better yet, he’s got an ERA+ of exactly 100. The Cardinals couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
Steven Brault gave up six runs and failed to get out of the fourth inning way back in early May at Busch Stadium. His ERA ran up to 8.82 after that game.
It’s pretty much gone down in every start since.
He’s given up more than three runs once in 15 games since then, most of them starts and the others long bullpen appearances. After giving up one run in 6.1 innings against the Rockies in his last start, his ERA is 3.88.
The Pirates had lost six of his starts in a row before winning the last two.
Pittsburgh is 9–4 in its last 13 but just lost two out of three to the Marlins.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction: St. Louis late.
I doubt Wainwright will out-pitch Brault but he’ll keep it close and the Birds will win it late. I’m not laying any major chalk on the road favorites though.
