Score: 1 - 3
Money Line: -143 St. Louis
*3 Star Play on Cardinals ML* The Cardinals are 13-3 in Adam Wainwright's last 16 home starts against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Wainwright's splits at home are tremendous this year. He has a 2.26 ERA at home and his wOBA allowed is only .292.
Joe Musgrove has had 5 of his last 6 starts with a FIP of 5.50 or higher. He is dealing with a minor back injury and was torched in his last start. The Cardinals have hit him really well this year in general as well.
The Pirates have absolutely nothing to play for. They are 5-21 in their last 26 games. The Cardinals are right in the thick of the playoff race, and this series means a lot to them. This is their chance to make up some ground.
The Pirates are 0-5 in Musgrove's last 5 starts vs. the Cardinals.
Take the Cardinals.
