The St. Louis Cardinals could use a win here after losing five of their last six games. The Cardinals have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The St. Louis Cardinals have won five of their last six games when scoring more than two runs. Yadier Molina leads the Cardinals with 137 hits and 82 RBI while Tommy Pham and Matt Carpenter have combined for 256 hits and 142 RBI. John Gant gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 3.65 ERA and eight strikeouts this season. This will be Gant’s first career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 7-2 in their last 9 road games, 2-5 in their last 7 vs. National League Central and 0-4 in Andersons last 4 Friday starts. The Cardinals are 7-2 in their last 9 during game 1 of a series, 5-2 in their last 7 Friday games and 1-6 in their last 7 vs. a team with a winning record. The Brewers are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in St. Louis, 6-2 in the last 8 meetings and the over is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Gant has been solid in his 12.1 innings this season and is worth a look at home, but the Cards offense has been inconsistent as of late and they're a team that's counting the days until the offseason. Anderson has allowed a combined five runs in his last 22.2 innings and hasn't allowed a run in his last 11 innings on the road. Of course, there's the fact the Brewers need to win out to have any chance of stealing that last wild card spot. I like the Milwaukee Brewers to get the job done.
