Meanwhile, the Cardinals are 4-12 in their last 16 with the total set at 9.0-10.5 and 8-3 in their last 11 at home versus a lefty starter. The over is 5-1 in St. Louis’ last six in game two of a series and 25-11-2 in their last 38 at home versus a left-handed starter.
PICK: I’m going to stick with Miami. Rogers has been really solid over his last seven starts, posting two earned or fewer in each and lasting at least 5.0 innings in every one as well. Rogers has six earned on 17 hits in his last 19.0 innings with 19 strikeouts in that span. I like Rogers to pitch well again here and put Miami in a nice spot.
