#910 ST. LOUIS with Wainwright (+106) over Milwaukee with Burnes at 7:45 PM EST
Off that ugly 8-4 loss to the Brew Crew yesterday, the Redbirds will rally the troops and pick up a dub here. St. Louis still owns a 7.0-game advantage in the NL Central standings and manager Oliver Marmol would like to add to that lead with a beating of its own.

Veteran right-hander Adam Wainwright will grab the pearl for the home squad. In 2022, No. 50 had his number called 28 times in a starting role and been touched for 64 earned runs and 166 hits in 173.0 innings. Wainwright whiffed 134 and walked 45 on his way to a 10-9 record with a solid 3.33 ERA. Adam’s efforts inside Busch Stadium have been noteworthy too. At home, Wainwright has allowed only 30 earned runs and 94 hits in 102.0 frames. That’s good enough for a 6-3 record with a 2.65 ERA.

Big righty Corbin Burnes will toe the rubber for the visitors. So far this year, No. 39 has made 28 starts and been zapped for 56 earned runs and 122 hits in 172.0 innings of work. Burnes struck out 214 and walked 46 on his way to a 10-6 mark with a 2.93 ERA. Corbin’s last four starts have shown signs of fatigue in his arm. With 23.1 frames completed, Burnes was blasted for 15 earned runs and 23 hits. That’s bad enough for a 1-1 record with a soft 5.79 ERA.

Plenty of powerful team trends back this elite wager. St. Louis has won 14 of its last 17 when coming off a loss, nine of its last 11 after allowing five runs or more last, 36 of its last 51 when playing in its own backyard, and 38 of its last 54 when fighting in the second game of a series. On the other side of the park, Milwaukee has fallen in 14 of its last 20 when facing a foe that allowed five runs or more last and 15 of its last 21 on foreign soil.

The Cardinals have four games remaining against the Brew Crew (two at home and two on the road) and they need to make sure they grab the victories inside Busch Stadium III. Take St. Louis. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
