The St. Louis Cadinals had no answers on offense on Saturday as they lost to the Dodgers. Randal Grichuk had the Cardinals only hit and Matt Holliday and Yadier Molina each had a walk as the Cardinals scored no runs. Starting pitcher Jaime Garcia allowed six hits and two runs while striking out six over 7.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 1-3 for the season. For Sunday’s game the Cardinals start Lance Lynn who has allowed 66 hits and 23 earned runs while striking out 72 over 68.1 innings for a 4-4 record and a 3.03 ERA.
Los Angeles is 8-2 in game four of a series, 37-15 as a home favorite, and 6-0 in Greinke’s last six starts against a team with a winning record. The Cardinals are 5-2 against a team with a winning record, 36-17 in their last 53 games, and 1-7 in Lynn’s last eight road starts. St. Louis is 6-2 in the last eight meetings of these two.
The total is set at 6.5 and while we haven’t seen a lot of scoring this series I expect this one to slide over that number and the over is my FREE PICK. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
