MLB FREE PICK: Take Chicago. According to latest MLB trends, St. Louis is 1-4 in Wainright's last 5 starts vs. Cubs, 0-4 last 4 vs. a left-handed starter. Cubs are 5-1 last 6 vs. a right-handed starter, 4-1 last 5 Sunday games and 6-2 last 8 overall.

St. Louis is trying to avoid going into the All-Star break losing three of four to the Cubs. They send out Adam Wainright (12-5, 2.30 ERA) to the mound against a team he's struggled with lately. In his last two starts he's allowed eight runs against the Cubs in 14 innings. That's including a start on June 18 when the Cubs won 4-2 in St. Louis.  Left-hander Travis Wood (6-6, 2.69 ERA) has pitched extremely well, allowing just four runs in his last three starts. He's allowed three or less runs in eight straight starts. Against the Cardinals, Wood has allowed just six runs in his last three starts. The Cardinals also struggled against left-handed pitching, hitting just .232 as opposed to hitting .279 against right-handers. They'll also be without outfielder Matt Holliday, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury. Holliday was hitting .268 with 13 home runs and had driven in 47 runs, which is third on the team. Expect the Cubs to go into the break on a winning note.
