St. Louis Cardinals
The six-year journeyman Miles Mikolas has been earning his spot in this St. Louis rotation, this time by blanking the Chicago Cubs and picking up his fourth win of the season. He pitched seven scoreless innings giving up seven hits while striking out four and walking none. It was an efficient outing as he needed just 95 pitches to get through seven.
Mikolas previously played three years over in Japan where he posted a 33-13 record with a 2.18 ERA. For St. Louis, he is posting a 2.70 ERA and a somewhat higher 3.46 FIP, but whats making him so efficient is his 0.45 BB/9 as he’s only allowed two walks all year and they came in the same contest. He owns a ridiculous 31:2 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
St. Louis has been playing winning baseball as they have won four of their six contests in the last week. In that span their lineup is only slashing .187/.304/.326 to go with just 12 extra-base hits and 18 RBI.
San Diego Padres
Coming out of the pen, Lyles will be making his first start of the season. Don’t let his high 3.66 ERA fool you, it was damaged two appearances ago against the New York Mets where he gave up four runs, one home run and walk in 1.2 innings. His ERA went from 2.20 to 4.00 after that.
If you take away that bad outing, Lyles has pitched 18 innings giving up six hits and four runs. With the way he is pitching, it wouldn’t surprise me if he went five-plus innings as St. Louis is going to lack that familiarity with him.
San Diego has won just two of their six contests in the last week. In that span their lineup is slashing .213/.295/.333 to go with 11 extra-base hits and 19 RBI.

Free St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Padres +137 & Padres +1.5
Mikolas has been playing fantastic baseball recently as he has put in four quality starts in a row, and in those 28 innings of work he has given up just 4 earned runs. Such a streak is always met with a dud and being on the road where he owns a .446 SLG%, this seems like the time it will happen. Back the home team dogs.
