The New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals meet Saturday in MLB action at Busch Stadium. The New York Yankees look to snap a 3-game losing streak. The St. Louis Cardinals look to build on their 5-game winning streak.
The New York Yankees have scored 12 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 7 games. The Yankees have won 5 of their last 7 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Aaron Judge leads the Yankees with 115 hits and 93 RBI, while DJ LeMahieu and Isiah Kiner-Falefa have combined for 193 hits and 74 RBI. Domingo German gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 6.39 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. This will be German’s first career game against the Cardinals.
The St. Louis Cardinals have scored 15 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 8 straight games. The Cardinals have won 8 of their last 9 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Cardinals with 125 hits and 82 RBI, while Nolan Arenado and Tommy Edman have combined for 210 hits and 100 RBI.

The Yankees are 2-7 in their last 9 road games and 63-30 in their last 93 overall. The Cardinals are 5-0 in their last 5 home games and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The over is 19-6-1 in Yankees last 26 overall. The under is 5-2 in Cardinals last 7 overall. The Yankees are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
You can make a case for the St. Louis Cardinals, as they’re playing the better baseball right now, and the Yankees haven’t quite looked right in the second half. Domingo German also hasn’t been good in his limited sample size this season. However, we’re getting a cheap price with the best team in baseball. Also, Jordan Montgomery has pitched all 502.2 of his career innings with the Yankees. As their teammate, the Yankees have gotten front row seats of his stuff. I’m sure they know what to expect. I like the Yankees to bounce back here.
