The St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers meet Friday in MLB game two of an MLB doubleheader at Miller Park.
The St. Louis Cardinals look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The Cardinals have scored 12 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in three of their last six games. The Cardinals have lost five of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Cardinals with 54 hits and 20 RBI while Tommy Edman and Kolten Wong have combined for 92 hits and 38 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 six games. The Brewers have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four straight games. The Brewers have lost four of their last five games when scoring three or less runs. Keston Hiura leads the Brewers with 44 hits and 32 RBI while Avisail Garcia and Orlando Arcia have combined for 80 hits and 33 RBI. Daniel Ponce de Leon gets the ball, and he is 0-3 with a 5.74 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. Ponce de Leon is 0-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against the Cardinals.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Daniel Ponce de Leon has allowed six runs and 12 hits in his last 14 innings, and he has a .216 allowed batting average and .344 on base percentage this season. Ponce de Leon has done a decent job of getting outs and not allowing a ton of hits, but the 18 walks has killed him and it's why his ERA is rather high and the Cardinals don't win a lot with him on the hill. However, the Milwaukee Brewers aren't the best offensive team in the world, so we may not have that problem in this contest. In fact, Ponce de Leon faced the Brewers earlier this month and allowed just two runs through six innings, a game the Cardinals won.
I'll side with the Cardinals in game two of this Friday doubleheader.
