The Line: Milwaukee Brewers / St. Louis Cardinals --- Over/Under: Click Here for the Latest Odds
The St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers meet Wednesday in game two of an MLB doubleheader at Miller Park.
The St. Louis Cardinals need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Cardinals have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Cardinals have lost eight of their last nine games when scoring three or less runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Cardinals with 44 hits and 18 RBI while Tommy Edman and Kolten Wong have combined for 75 hits and 30 RBI. The St. Louis Cardinals didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Brewers have scored 22 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Brewers have lost six of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Keston Hiura leads the Brewers with 39 hits and 30 RBI while Avisail Garcia and Christian Yelich have combined for 68 hits and 35 RBI. Brent Suter gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 3.52 ERA and 30 strikeouts this season. Suter is 2-2 with a 3.57 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Cardinals.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Brent Suter has allowed one run and five hits in his last 5.1 innings, and he's allowing a .253 batting average and .277 on base percentage on the season. Against current Cardinals in 57 at bats, Suter is allowing a .188 batting average with nine strikeouts. It's always tough to predict the second game of a doubleheader without knowing what happened in the first game, and it's even tougher here with the St. Louis Cardinals not listing a starting pitcher. However, I still lean toward the Brewers, who have played the better baseball this week and finally snapped out of their offensive funk last night. The Cards are in full struggle mode right now.
Give me the Brewers in game two.
