Cardinals' Weaver pitches well in loss to Royals

Luke Weaver fanned eight while allowing three runs over seven innings but took a loss Tuesday against the Royals. Weaver needed just 88 pitches to navigate through his seven frames even with his eight punchouts, but a couple solo home runs and a two-out RBI double by the light-hitting Alcides Escobar did him in. The young right-hander has rebounded from a rough stretch with three straight good outings.

It’s possible Weaver’s rotation spot could be vulnerable when Alex Reyes and Carlos Martinez are back, although he should have at least a couple more outings to prove he belongs. The first one will come in Milwaukee next week.

Brewers' Suter sharp in win over Diamondbacks

Brent Suter surrendered four hits and two runs over 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in the Brewers’ win over the Diamondbacks. He finished the afternoon with six strikeouts and two walks while throwing 50 of his 88 pitches for strikes. Both runs came in the second inning on solo blasts by Paul Goldschmidt and John Ryan Murphy.

Suter has fared well since returning to the rotation, delivering a 3.85 ERA over his last three outings. The Harvard alum will be back at it Monday against St. Louis.

MLB Betting Trends

St. Louis

The Cardinals have won 43 of their last 62 games against the Brewers at Miller Park.

Milwaukee

The Brewers have won six of their last seven games overall, are 6-1 in their last seven home games and are 7-2 in Suter's last nine home starts.

Prediction:

Betting against the Brewers recently has been a losing proposition but I like this matchup for the Cardinals. Suter has been tough on lefties but the only left-hander in the Cardinals starting lineup will be Matt Carpenter. Tommy Pham, Jose Martinez, Marcell Ozuna and Jedd Gyorko all have advantages against Suter. Meanwhile, Weaver is coming off a strong start and usually has excellent command. He'll need it against this hot Milwaukee lineup that tore up Mets pitching over the weekend but I'll take the risk.

The Pick: St. Louis Cardinals -115
