Over on the Cardinals’ side, they’re going with Miles Mikolas on Sunday. Mikolas is 7-12 with a 3.94 ERA and 97 strikeouts this year.

The Pirates are 0-4 in their last four Sunday games and 0-8 in their last eight ing game three of a series. Pitt is 2-5 in Brault’s last seven starts and 2-5 in his last seven in game three of a series.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals are 19-7 in their last 26 versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30 and 1-4 in their last five versus a left-handed starter. The under is 10-1-1 in the Cardinals’ last 12 Sunday games and 59-27-3 in their last 89 in game three of a series.

Brault came back from the 10-day IL in his last start on Tuesday, and bagged two runs on three hits with six Ks in 5.1 innings. He’s got a 2.21 ERA in his last eight starts.

As for Mikolas, he’s getting normal rest here despite the Cards jumping a spot in the rotation. Since the break, he’s got a 2.18 ERA in five starts.

This should be an entertaining matchup and a close game. I’m taking the at-home Cardinals to eke one out, though.
