The Brewers out-hit St. Louis 9-2 in the Saturday win, and emerged victorious behind a great defensive performance. Milwaukee’s Orlando Arcia went 4-for-4 with a run and Brandon Woodruff had 8.0 innings, two hits, a walk and 10 Ks.
For the Sunday start, the Brewers are sending out Brett Anderson. In his nine starts this year Anderson is 4-3 with a 4.00 ERA and 31 Ks in 45.0 innings. Over his MLB career, Anderson is 63-64 with a 4.05 ERA and 713 Ks in 1042.1 innings.
Over on the Cardinals’ side, Adam Wainwright took his third loss of the season on Saturday with 6.2 innings, eight hits, three earned, one walk and three strikeouts. Kolten Wong and Yadier Molina each had a hit, the Cards’ only two of the night.
In the Sunday starter role, the Cardinals will go with Austin Gomber. In his 13 games (three starts) this year, Gomber is 1-1 with a 1.80 ERA and 24 Ks in 25.0 innings. In his MLB career, Gomber is 7-3 with a 3.78 ERA and 91 Ks in 100.0 innings.
The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in St. Louis and the under is also 4-1-1 in the last six meetings overall between these teams. The Brewers are 4-1 in the last five meetings between these teams in St. Louis.
Pick: I’m going to go with the Cardinals here. The starting pitcher matchup is intriguing. Anderson got a nice 18-run cushion in his other start versus the Cardinals this year, so Milwaukee is hoping for a repeat of that. As for Gomber, he’s coming in here after an emergency start that went very well (six shutout innings) on Tuesday versus Kansas City. I like Gomber to put St. Louis in a good spot here.
