The St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers meet in MLB action from Dodger Stadium on Friday.
The St. Louis Cardinals will try to build on their 5-4 win over the San Diego Padres from Thursday’s matchup. Nolan Arenado has 29 home runs along with 98 RBIs, 41 doubles, 157 hits and a .296 batting average while Tommy Edman has a .265 batting average and 147 hits with 4 triples, 13 home runs and 56 RBIs. Dylan Carlson has 25 doubles, Paul Goldschmidt has a team-high 171 hits, 40 doubles and a .321 batting average with 35 home runs and 112 RBIs while Tyler O’Neill has 58 RBIs as well up to this point in the year. Jose Quintana will start here and is 5-6 with a 3.16 ERA and 124 strikeouts this season.
The Los Angeles Dodgers will look to build on their 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in Thursday’s matchup. Freddie Freeman has 190 hits with a .328 batting average while Justin Turner has 81 RBIs and 36 doubles. Trea Turner also has 183 hits with 38 doubles, a .301 batting average and a team-high 97 RBIs. Freeman also has 45 doubles to lead the Dodgers while Mookie Betts has 144 hits, 35 home runs, 80 RBIs and a .272 batting average. Andrew Heaney will start here and is 3-2 with a 2.66 ERA and 92 strikeouts this season.
The under is 5-1 in St. Louis’ last 6 games overall. Los Angeles is 17-5 in their last 22 home games and 8-3 in their last 12 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.
I get the case to be made for both sides here as both are coming off of big wins on Thursday and will try to carry that over here. That being said, I’m looking at the under here, as I still don’t fully trust that St. Louis’ offense is back, but Quintana’s been solid lately for the Cards and I think he can hold Los Angeles in check. I think this is a 3-2 kind of game, so give me the under in what should be a highly-entertaining game.
