Moustakas, Grandal power Brewers
Milwaukee picked up a 5-2 road win Saturday at St. Louis to improve to 79-69 overall and 36-38 on the road. Yasmani Grandal helped lead the Brewers offense as he finished 1-for-3 with a home run, a walk, two runs scored and two RBIs. Mike Moustakas ended the game 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk and two RBIs. Trent Grisham was 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs. Jordan Lyles recorded the win as he gave up two runs (one earned) on six hits with four strikeouts and no walks over six innings. Chase Anderson gets the start today for Milwaukee as he enters with a 6-4 record, 4.57 ERA and 1.31 WHIP plus 112 strikeouts over 124 innings.
Edman homers in loss
St. Louis fell by a count of 5-2 at home Saturday against Milwaukee to drop to 83-65 overall and 47-27 at home. Tommy Edman paced the Cardinals offense as he was 2-for-4 with a solo home run. Harrison Bader went 1-for-3 with a run scored. Kolten Wong ended the game 2-for-4. Jack Flaherty suffered the loss as he allowed three earned runs on five hits with 10 strikeouts and two walks over six innings. Michael Wacha starts today for St. Louis as he comes in with a 6-7 record, 4.97 ERA and 1.55 WHIP plus 99 strikeouts over 116 innings of work.
MLB Betting Trends
The Brewers are 8-1 in their last nine games. Milwaukee is 4-1 in its last five games versus the NL Central.
The Cardinals are 4-1 in the last five Wacha home starts. St. Louis is 25-10 in its last 35 games overall.
Don't get it confused. St. Louis is still dominant at home and I don't expect it to lose this series. Wacha has been pitching better as of late and the Brewers are without one of the best hitters in baseball in Christian Yelich. Anderson isn't likely to be flawless and I think the Cardinals get to him enough to win the series finale.
