St. Louis vs Chicago Cubs by Sors

St.-Louis
VS
Chicago-Cubs
The St. Louis Cardinals will give the ball to John Lackey (1-1 with a 3.69 ERA), who pitched well in his previous start in May, allowing 6 hits and 1 run, while striking out four over six innings in a 2-1 win over Pittsburgh last Saturday.

 

In the point of fact, John Lackey had problems in some of his previous five starts in 2015, but the right-hander yielded 4 runs on 20 hits over twenty innings in his previous three home starts this season and is 4-1 with a 2.06 ERA in nine starts at Busch Stadium after he was acquired from St. Louis last July.

 

Lackey went 0-1 with a 2.87 ERA in his last two starts against the Cubs, allowing 5 hits and 2 runs, while walking four and striking out eight over 6 2/3 innings of a 1-2 loss at Chicago on Sept. 24, 2014.

 

Chris Coghlan is 5-for-8, with 2 RBI against him, Miguel Montero is 3-for-6, with 2 RBI, but Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro, Jorge Soler, Welington Castillo and Chris Denorfia are a combined 2-for-14.

 

The Cubs, who ended a four-game losing streak with a 6-5 win in the third game of this series yesterday, will send to the mound Jake Arrieta (3-2 with a 2.84 ERA).

 

Arrieta was outstanding in his last start versus St. Louis, as he gave up just 3 hits, while striking out seven over seven scoreless innings in a 2-0 win on April 8.

 

It’s not a big surprise actually, given the fact that the right-hander went 3-0 with a 0.74 ERA in six career starts against the Cardinals.

 

Matt Adams is 5-for-12, with 3 RBI and two walks against Arrieta, Jhonny Peralta is 6-for-19, with 1 RBI and a walk, but Matt Carpenter is 0-for-13, Kolten Wong is 2-for-12, Jon Jay is 0-for-9, Jason Heyward is 2-for-9, while Yadier Molina is 2-for-10.

 

I think there are enough prerequisites for less than eight runs in the final game of this series between the Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs.
