The St. Louis Cardinals look for a win after splitting their first six games. The Cardinals offense is starting to show more consistency by producing at least four runs in four straight games. Offensively, Jhonny Peralta leads St. Louis with nine hits and six RBI, while Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday have combined for 16 hits and seven RBI. The Cards pitching staff has allowed 10 runs in their last two games. The St. Louis Cardinals seem to be still figuring things out with a new roster, and they’ve won seven of their last 10 regular season home games. Lance Lynn gets the ball, and he’s 0-1 with a 1.50 ERA and nine strikeouts this season. Lynn is 5-2 with a 2.26 ERA and 74 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 4-14 in their last 18 road games and 1-4 in Peraltas last 5 starts during game 2 of a series. The Cardinals are 38-18 in their last 56 home games and 8-3 in Lynns last 11 home starts. The Brewers are 5-1 in Peraltas last 6 starts vs. Cardinals and 22-45 in the last 67 meetings overall.
Lynn has owned the Brewers in his career and the Brewers have been flat out awful on the road. While the chalk is a little steep, the Cards have to be the pick here.
