The Line: Milwaukee Brewers -127 / St. Louis Cardinals +117 --- Over/Under: 9
Out at Miller Park on Tuesday, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers will be continuing their MLB series.
In the Monday opener, the Cardinals rattled off four runs in the sixth on the way to an 8-4 win.
For the Tuesday game, the Cardinals will be bringing out RHP Jack Flaherty. In his six starts and 0-2 record last year, Flaherty had a 6.33 ERA with 15 earned in 21.1 innings.
Heading into this series, Jose Martinez led the way for the Cardinals with five hits, two runs, three RBI and one homer. On Monday, Paul DeJong put up three hits with a three-run homer.
Over on the Brewers’ side, they’re going with RHP Chase Anderson on Tuesday. In his lone start this year, Anderson has zero earned, six Ks and one hit in 6.0 innings.
Tops in hitting for the Brewers coming into this set was Lorenzo Cain with eight hits, three runs, three doubles and three RBI. In the Monday game, Eric Thames homered and drove in two RBI.
The Cardinals are 5-0 in their last five Tuesday games and 20-8 in their last 28 during game two of a series. The over is 8-0 in the Cardinals’ last eight Tuesday games and 5-0 in the last five during game two of a series.
Meanwhile, the Brewers are 5-2 in their last seven Tuesday games and 5-1 in Anderson’s last six starts. Milwaukee is also 6-2 in Anderson’s last eight home starts and 4-1 in his last five starts versus the NL Central.
There’s not a whole lot to like about St. Louis this season, as their offense is pretty darn uninspiring. Flaherty doesn’t exactly provide much confidence either, especially with Anderson on the other side. I’m going to go Brewers in this one.
