Over on the Cardinals’ side, they’ll send out Miles Mikolas in the start Saturday. Over 184.0 innings and a 9-14 record, Mikolas has a 4.16 ERA with 144 Ks and 32 BBs.

The Cubs are 1-4 in their last five Saturday games and 1-5 in their last six in game two of a series. Chicago is 1-4 in Hamels’ last five starts and 1-4 in his last five on grass.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals are 5-1 in their last six Saturday games and 1-4 in their last five in game two of a series. St. Louis is 1-7 in Mikolas’ last eight starts with five days’ rest and 0-4 in his last four Saturday starts.

Hamels has been decent over his last two starts, with three earned in 7.2 innings on seven hits. He hasn’t won a game since August 20, though, going 0-3 in five games.

As for Mikolas, he’s got consecutive quality starts with four earned in 13.0 innings, despite going 0-1. I like Mikolas a little better here so I’m going Cards.
