Not long ago, I wrote a post about the end of the Cardinals’ season and how I thought they would fare. So far, I’ve been spot on. We took two of three from both the Brewers and the Mariners. It wasn’t always pretty, but the Cards came through and finished their home stand with a 5-2 record.
Now, they’re headed into a road trip against the Rockies and the Brewers again. If my predictions continue to be correct, St. Louis should come back from their seven game showdown having gone 4-3. I’d prefer 5-2, but we’ll see.
In the meantime, the Cardinals have to get through Collin McHugh tonight. He’s a rookie making a spot start for Dane De La Rosa, and his results this season have been far from inspiring. He has a 10.50 ERA in 12 innings this season. Tonight will be his third start. Hopefully, the Cards can take advantage of an inexperienced pitcher and kick off this road trip with a bang!
On the mound for St. Louis is Lance Lynn. As we all know, he’s been struggling lately, but turned it around in his last start and managed to throw six shutout innings against the Brewers. It would be good to see his success continue, both for his own sake and for the club’s sake. It would be nice to have another reliable pitcher down the stretch.
Well, here we go in Denver! Let’s hope the Cardinals kick this one off the right way!
Let’s go St. Louis!!!
