The Padres were one of the most explosive teams in the MLB this season, notarized by their penchant for the grand slam. San Diego ended the regular season 14 games above .500.
The Cardinals are in a tough spot in Wednesday’s series opener having to travel to the West Coast for the first time in the shortened 2020 campaign. St. Louis made the postseason as the 2nd place team in the NL Central.
St. Louis Cardinals
Yes, St. Louis is traveling for the start of this series, but the Cardinals are just happy to have two days of rest prior to Wednesday’s game. The Cardinals haven’t had an off day since September 9th with many double headers mixed in over that span.
St. Louis and San Diego did not play each other during the regular season and the visit out West does put the Cardinals at a disadvantage. That being said, Mike Schildt’s team was a respectable 16-15 on the road this year.
From early year closer to making his first postseason start, the Cardinals go with Kwang-Hyun Kim in the series opener. The left-hander has allowed just 6 ER in 7 starts, with four coming in one game.
San Diego Padres
San Diego actually made the NL West respectable, finishing only 6GB from the Dodgers despite L.A.’s 43-17 record. The Padres had a +84 run differential on the year, 2nd best to only Los Angeles in the entire MLB.
The Padres also come into the wild card round with momentum, having won three straight. San Diego had the #3 scoring offense during the regular season, but nobody on the roster has ever faced St. Louis starter Kim.
It will be Chris Paddack getting the nod for San Diego, mostly due to injuries to Mike Clevinger and Dinelson Lamet. Paddack has faced some woes lately, allowing 4+ in 3 of his last 6 regular season starts.
