Off back-to-back one-run losses, the St. Louis Cardinals are highly motivated for a victory Saturday over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Cardinals trail the Pirates and Reds in the NL Central division, so this is certainly an important game for them.
The biggest reason for this play is the huge edge St. Louis has on the mound. Lance Lynn is 13-5 with a 3.65 ERA and 1.290 WHIP in 23 starts this season, including 6-3 with a 3.15 ERA and 1.233 WHIP in nine home starts.
Erik Bedard, who is 7-12 with a 4.56 ERA and 1.418 WHIP in 22 starts this season, is no match for Lynn. The left-hander is 3-8 with a 6.75 ERA and 1.756 WHIP in 11 road starts. Bedard is 1-2 with a 4.86 ERA and 1.680 WHIP in three career starts against St. Louis as well.
The Pirates are 1-6 in Bedard’s last 7 road starts. The Cardinals are 7-1 in their last 8 home games vs. a left-handed starter. St. Louis is 10-1 in Lynn’s last 11 starts vs. National League Central opponents. Bet the Cardinals Saturday.
