Sunday Night Baseball: Cardinals at Brewers
by Steve Merril
By Covers.com

Sunday Night Baseball takes us to the NL Central where the Brewers are hosting the surging Cardinals.

KELLY KEEPS IT GOING FOR ST. LOUIS

Joe Kelly is 9-4 with a 2.74 ERA for St. Louis this season. Kelly has been dealing with a strained calf and he is questionable for this start. The righty has allowed one earned run or less in five of his last seven starts. The Cardinals’ starter does not go deep into games as he has not pitched more than six innings in his last ten outings. Kelly just saw the Brewers at home on September 12th in a game he lost 5-3. He allowed four runs and seven hits in just five innings with four strikeouts and one walk.

WILD WILY PERALTA

Wily Peralta is 10-15 with a 4.34 ERA for Milwaukee. He has been a roller coaster of a starter this season. Peralta has allowed three runs or more in four of his last six starts. The Brewers’ pitcher lost to the Cardinals back on September 10th after giving up three runs and two hits in just over six innings. He faced St. Louis twice in May and gave up 13 runs and 22 hits in those two games. He has electric stuff striking out six or more in four straight games, but he is also prone to bouts of wildness.

INJURY REPORT

St. Louis has a few key players on the injured list. Allen Craig has a sprained left foot and he is out indefinitely. Jaime Garcia, Chris Carpenter, and Jason Motte are all done for the season due to shoulder and elbow ailments. Rafael Furcal is done for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Milwaukee’s biggest absence isn’t an injury, but a suspension as Ryan Braun is suspended for 65 games for his involvement in the Biogenesis clinic. The Brewers are also without Rickie Weeks (hamstring) and Corey Hart (knee).

TRENDS

Cardinals are 9-1 in Kelly’s last 10 starts
Cardinals are 5-2 Over in their last 7 Sunday games

Brewers are 2-5 in Peralta’s last 7 starts
Brewers are 7-1 Under in Peralta’s last 8 Sunday starts

HITTERS TO WATCH

Matt Carpenter 4-for-8 vs. Peralta
Jon Jay 3-for-9 vs. Peralta

Norichika Aoki 5-for-11 vs. Kelly
Aramis Ramirez 2-for-10 vs. Kelly
