Cardinals' Weaver shines over eight innings vs. Giants

Luke Weaver was on the money in Thursday's 11-2 win over the Giants, surrendering two runs on two hits over eight innings. Weaver struck out seven without walking a batter on the evening. It was an effortless outing, one which required just 93 pitches. He was well within range of a complete game, but Mike Matheny called his night's work after eight innings. The 24-year-old right-hander did not allow his first hit until Gorkys Hernandez managed an infield single in the sixth inning. Alen Hanson would make louder contact with a two-run home run later in the frame.

Outside of that Hanson homer, though, Weaver kept the Giants off the scoreboard altogether. This outing was a much-needed one, as he was coming off an eight-run blasting at the hands of these same Giants last time out. Call it redemption. He'll carry a 4.92 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 89/34 K/BB ratio (97 innings) into a road date with the White Sox next time out.

White Sox' Rodon walks six in wild, effective innings

Carlos Rodon walked six and gave up five hits but held the Astros to just two runs over six innings Thursday in a no-decision. It's not the recommended course, but Rodon made it work, mostly steering around trouble save for a Jose Altuve two-run homer in the fifth inning. Six strikeouts helped, as did a pair of inning-ending double play ground balls. Rodon has been up and down through six starts, going 1-3 with a 4.29 ERA and 1.29 WHIP since coming off the disabled list in early June. An interleague start against the Cardinals awaits on Wednesday.

MLB Betting Trends

St. Louis

The Cardinals are 4-0 in Weaver's last four road starts.


The White Sox are 1-5 in Rodon's last six starts.


Last night's game sailed over the total but the under is actually still 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams. The Cardinals' offense is incredibly inconsistent so it wouldn't surprise me if St. Louis was held to under five runs one night after the club scored in the double-digits. I feel like the 9 runs is too high of a number.


The Pick: Cardinals/White Sox under 9
