Cards vs Brewers
Yesterday’s loss at Wrigley figures to take a toll on the Brewers. It was a game the Brewers thought they had won. (You probably saw that the Cubs rallied and eventually won via a walk-off home run.) Off that deflating loss, their second straight, the Brewers take on a suddenly surging St. Louis team. The Cards, who had previously lost six of seven, are off a sweep of the Pirates. They won all three games by a 2-1 score.
St. Louis figures to have the edge on the mound once again. Martinez gets the call for the visitors and he’s 4-1 (team is 6-2) with a stellar 1.79 ERA in eight starts vs. the Brewers. In his last two starts here at Milwaukee, he’s recorded a whopping 24 K’s, dominating the Brewer lineup.
Davies has been horrible thus far. In two starts here at Milwaukee, he’s 0-2 with a 10.61 ERA and 2.358 WHIP.
The Cards are 26-12 against the Brewers the past few seasons and that includes a 13-5 mark here at Milwaukee.
Consider St. Louis -120
Ben was 7-1 Overall on Hump Day!
Ben Burns was 7-1 on Wednesday, a PERFECT 3-0 at the ballpark. Here, he lays some extra juice for a game which he expects to result in a R-O-U-T!
