The St. Louis Cardinals and Minnesota Twins play game three of their series Wednesday night.
The St. Louis Cardinals look to build on their five-game winning streak. The Cardinals have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The Cardinals have split their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Jhonny Peralta leads St. Louis with 74 hits and 35 RBI while Matt Carpenter and Yadier Molina have combined for 53 RBI. The St. Louis Cardinals have won five of their last eight road games. Carlos Martinez gets the nod, and he’s 7-2 with a 2.93 ERA and 79 strikeouts this season. This will be Martinez’s first career game against the Twins.

The Minnesota Twins need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Twins have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last eight games. The Twins have lost six straight games when scoring three or less runs. Brian Dozier leads Minnesota with 65 hits and 32 RBI while Joe Mauer and Torii Hunter have combined for 71 RBI. The Minnesota Twins have lost five of their last six home games. Tommy Milone takes the hill, and he’s 2-1 with a 4.15 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. This will be Milone’s second career game against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are 44-17 in their last 61 during game 3 of a series and 5-0 in Martinezs last 5 starts. The Twins are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in their last 6 home games. The Cardinals are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Twins are one of the colder teams in baseball right now. With Martinez on the hill, I really like the Cards to get another win here.
