Betting Pick: St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Francisco Giants

The St. Louis Cardinals are on the road for the final game of their three-game weekend set with the San Francisco Giants Sunday afternoon. In the opening game of the series Friday night, it was the Cardinals powering their way to a 9-4 victory to draw first blood in the series The pitching matchup for Saturday’s middle game of the series saw Miles Mikolas take the mound for the Cardinals against the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner

St. Louis won their third straight and their fourth in the last five games as they powered past the Giants in the opening game of the series. The Cardinals entered Saturday third in the NL Central, 1.5 games behind the Brewers. Dexter Fowler (three runs, two RBI) and Kolten Wong (run, two RBI) each had three hits in the victory for St. Louis. Fowler (his 10th), Paul Goldschmidt (his 15th) and Jose Martinez (his eighth) each homered in the contest. Dakota Hudson (7-4) picked up the win as he allowed three runs on six hits with three walks and six strikeouts over five innings of work.

San Francisco saw their four-game win streak snapped as they were unable to generate enough offense to offset a poor pitching performance. The Giants entered Saturday in the basement of the NL West, 19.5 games behind the Dodgers in the division: they were 6.5 games behind the second wild card spot. San Francisco got two hits from Buster Posey (RBI) and Alex Dickerson (run, RBI) in the loss but it wasn’t nearly enough. Drew Pomeranz (2-9) took the loss on the mound as he allowed four runs on six hits with four walks and three strikeouts over four innings.
