Cardinals' Weaver scuffles again in no-decision vs. Phillies

Luke Weaver’s struggles continued again Tuesday, as he permitted four runs over five frames but escaped with a no-decision in the Cardinals’ 7-6 win over the Phillies. Weaver served up a pair of gopher balls and also issued four walks, including one with the bases loaded. The right-hander is normally a good control pitcher but has mysteriously dealt with bouts of wildness this season. Weaver has allowed four runs in three straight outings to push his ERA up to 4.69.

Brewers' Chacin turns in strong outing in loss vs. Pirates

Jhoulys Chacin worked 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball Monday in a tough-luck loss against the Pirates. Chacin did his part, but the Brewers mustered just two total hits -- and zero runs -- off Trevor Williams and the Pittsburgh bullpen. Chacin will carry a strong 6-2 record and 3.18 ERA into his next start at home against the Cardinals. He doesn't strike out many batters, but the 30-year-old right-hander is worth owning in deeper mixed fantasy leagues for the win potential and run prevention.

MLB Betting Trends

St. Louis

The Cardinals have lost eight of 11 overall and five of seven on the road.

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 21-9 in their last 30 home games and 13-5 in their last 18 games coming off a loss.

Prediction:

The Brewers have won 10 of Chacin's last 12 starts, are a perfect 5-0 in his last five home outings and are 4-1 in his last five starts versus the rest of the National League Central. Despite their win on Saturday afternoon, I'm fading the Cardinals again. Molina saved them with two home runs in a 3-2 victory but Weaver has struggled as a whole and may have been demoted at this point had Alex Reyes and Michael Wacha not suffered injuries.

 

The Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -135
