St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals need every win they can get at this point of the season as they are trying to chase down the Cubs who sit in first place in the National League Central.
They had a little hiccup in their last series losing three straight to the Red Sox, but they bounced back in game one this series.
On the mound for the Cardinals is Michael Wacha who comes into this game with a 9-5 record and an ERA of 3.85. In his last start he really struggled going five innings against the Braves and giving up eight hits and four earned runs.
On the other side of this match up is the Pittsburgh Pirates, who will be on the outside looking in when the playoffs start. They come into this game really struggling having lost five games in a row and the bats just haven’t been hitting.
On the mound for the Pirates is Chad Kuhl who has struggled this year. He comes into this game with a 5-8 record and an ERA of 4.64.
