Starting Pitching Matchup
Freddy Peralta will start for Milwaukee here and is 4-2 with a 3.32 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. St. Louis will start Jack Flaherty here and Flaherty is 2-4 with a 6.18 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season.
Milwaukee’s 6-1 win back on April 9th, 2023, made it three wins for the Brewers in the last four head-to-head meetings with the Cardinals.
Milwaukee is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall and 1-5 in their last 6 road games while the under is 8-3 in their last 11 series-opening games. St. Louis is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win while the over is 9-1-1 in their last 11 home games.
I’m backing the Cardinals here. Have I been sold on either of these teams? No, and admittedly I’m a Freddy Peralta fan more than I am a Jack Flaherty fan. However, the Cardinals are starting to turn it on after a slow start to the year, and Milwaukee just can’t seem to get out of their own way over the last couple of weeks. I’ll side with the Cardinals and the reasonable price here.
