St. Louis Cardinals vs Milwaukee Brewers (By: Mulder)
RHP Freddy Peralta will start on the mound for the Crew. Pretty much all or nothing with this guy. Allowed four runs against this Cards team, 7 against the Halos and between those outings he blanked the Reds.
Not so suprising of course as this guy throws basically one thing: The FB.
So he relies on two things:
1)Sprin rate, which is one of the best in the majors
2)FB placement ( hitting the corners etc )
So when he is off, no secondary pitches at all. Also, against solid FB hitting teams he gets usually in trouble. The Cards are a good FB hitting team indeed and they showed that this season against Peralta as mentioned before.
But also last season against the Cards: 3.72 ERA in 9.2 innings pitched.
For the Cardinals we will see RHP Dakota Hudson on the mound. 2.79 ERA, but with a terrible 7.29 FIP (!). He allowed 3 runs earlier this season in Milwaukee. However, he was lucky not to get rocked harder as his defence behind him made some great plays.
Hence taking the over.
