Matt looks to end the weekend strong! He is on a BLAZING 4-1 NBA run and he looks to extend his AWESOME 30-20-2 NBA run with TWO WINNERS on Sunday! On the bases, he WON with Milwaukee yesterday and for Sunday, he is releasing a Triple Play Trifecta so expect to AGAIN break out the broom! FIVE WINNERS Total!
St. Louis looks to avoid the sweep on Sunday after dropping the first two games of this series, giving up 16 runs in the process. The Cardinals are now 8-6 at home with four more games at home following this before the start of Interleague play. Lance Lynn looks to turn this situation around and judging by the season he has had, he should do it no problem. He is coming off his first non-quality start of the season but it was due to a lack of innings and not bad pitching as he allowed no runs in five innings of work at Arizona. He is a perfect 6-0 with a 1.40 ERA and 0.85 WHIP and his solid pitching has been bolstered even more with awesome run support as he is receiving 7.3 rpg.
The Braves record is a half-game better than the Cardinals after winning the last two days and they have improved to 13-8 on the road. This includes a 6-2 record on this current roadtrip but the situation for today is not in their favor. Tommy Hanson has pitched ok this season but he has been all over the place with just three quality outings in his seven starts on the season. The three quality effort have come in his last four games so he is pitching better of late but his velocity is still not where it should be and that is a major concern. The Cardinals are 20-6 in their last 26 home games against right-handed starters. 3* (912) St. Louis Cardinals
