It’s a National League Central showdown between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals in one of the most special games of the year.
It’s the Little League Classic that is taking place at the historic BB&T Park in Williamsport. Everyone participating in the Little League World Series is expected to be in the standings in this game.
St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals keep winning, but that won’t matter if the Chicago Cubs don’t keep winning two. They come into this game 1.5 games behind the Cubs for the lead in the National League Central.
Coming into this game their bats are hot, having scored 21 runs in their last two games, which resulted in two wins. The only issue was during those two games they also gave up 17 runs.
They can’t keep expecting that they will be able to score that many runs in a game, so the pitching needs to be better.
On the other side of this match up is the Pittsburgh Pirates, who won’t be in the playoffs when they roll around. They come into this game really struggling having lost six games in a row.
Unlike the Cardinals their bats are ice cold and that resulted in issues.
On the mound for the Pirates is Ivan Nova who comes into this game with a 10-10 record and an ERA of 3.77. In three of his last five starts he has given up four runs or more.
