The Major League Baseball brings more action on Wednesday evening as the San Diego Padres will face St Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium in St Louis, Missouri in game three of their three-game series. The Padres will give a start to Eric Lauer and the Cardinals will counter with Luke Weaver.
San Diego Padres Form
The Padres are not very solid this season. To be more specific, they have problems with their offensive part the game. However, it seems that they have some improvement in their last 10 games. The Padres are on the last place in the National League West. They lost the first game of this series, however, they were able to bounce back in the second as they won with a score of 4-2. The Padres have averaged 3.52 runs per game and have allowed 4.21 runs per game on the road so far.
On the offensive side of the game, the Padres have been poor this season as they are placed on the 25th spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 3.87 runs per game, while also holding the 25th spot in hitting at .233 and 27th spot in homers with a total of 61 so far. On the mound, they have same average stats as they are placed on the 20th spot in the league in ERA at 4.23, while also being 22nd in WHIP at 1.37 and 9th spot in K’s with 580.
St Louis Cardinals Form
The Cardinals are one of the teams that are in the race for the top spot in the National League Central. They won the first game of the series with 5-2, however they failed to keep that momentum as they lost the second game with a score of 4-2. They will need to improve their offensive abilities in order to get back on winning tracks. The Cardinals have averaged 4.21 runs per game and have allowed 3.79 runs per game here at Busch Stadium for the year.
On the offensive side of the game, the Cards are placed on the 15th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.33 runs per game, while also being on the 17th spot in hitting at .244 and 9th spot in homers with a total of 80 so far. On the mound, they have some solid stats as they hold the 8th place in the league in ERA at 3.58 while also being on the 14th spot in WHIP at 1.28 and 20th in K’s with 538.
The Cardinals had a good start in this series, but they were surprised in the second game. They are aiming for the top spot in the National League Central and they will need every win against any team if they want to keep pace with the Brewers and the Cubs. On the other side, the Padres are not having a good season, yet it seems that they are improving lately. However, I think that that the Cardinals are the better team and that they will bounce back from the loss on Tuesday. Go for the Cardinals in this one.
