The MLB is back on Friday evening as the Chicago Cubs will clash with the St Louis Cardinals at the Busch Stadium in St Louis. The Cubs will give the nod to Mike Montgomery and the Cardinals will counter with Luke Weaver.
Chicago Cubs Form
The Cubs are one of the better teams this season. However, it seems that the offence is not working as it was in the early stages of the season. Yet, they made a step in the right direction as they beat the Diamondbacks on Thursday with a score of 7-6. They will hope to maintain the momentum from the games against the Diamondbacks into this series against the Cardinals. The Cubs have averaged 5.04 runs per game and have allowed 3.64 runs per game on the year. Mike Montgomery record against the Cards stands at 1-1 with a 1.25 ERA in 10 games
On the offensive side of the game, the Cubs have been very solid as they are placed on the 5th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 5.06 runs per game. The also 2nd in hitting at .266 and 22nd in homers with a total of 105. On the mound, they have been very solid as they are placed on the 8th spot in the league in ERA at 3.71, while also being the 20th spot in WHIP at 1.34 and 21st place in K’s with 832.
St Louis Cardinals Form
The St Louis Cardinals had a hard time during June and July. It seems that their aim now is to stay in the race for a playoff spot in the National League Central. Their form is not so good as they lost 8 of their last 12 games. St Louis has averaged 4.06 runs per game and has allowed 4.29 runs per game here at home for the year.
Luke Weaver record against the Cubs stands at 0-3 with a 10.89 ERA in five starts.
The Cardinals are on the 13th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.46 runs per game, while also being on the 14th spot in hitting at .246 and 9th place in homers with a total of 130. On the mound, they are also on the 13th spot in the league in ERA at 3.94 while also being the 16th spot in WHIP at 1.32 and 20th place in K’s with 836.
The Cubs are playing well this season and they will be part of the World Series this season. They had a good performance against the Diamondbacks and they will aim to keep that form going into this series. On the other side, the Cardinals need to pick some wins in order to keep the pace for a playoff spot this season. I think that the Cardinals will show their potential in this game. Go for the Cardinals in this one.
