After splitting the first two games of the series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the St. Louis Cardinals will look to take the rubber match against the Snakes in Arizona on Sunday afternoon. Veteran Kyle Gibson fought through a tough first inning only to give up a 3-run home run in the 6th. Masyn Winn and Jordan Walker gave the Cardinals the first run in the fifth and Nolan Arenado did Nolan Arenado things in the field, but the offense once again faltered and showed minimal support. Mistakes on the basepaths late int he game also doomed the team.

The Cardinals have fought against comparable opponents so far this season after losing 2 of 3 to the Phillies but winning 2 of 3 against the Padres. This series feels eerily similar to those in which the Cardinals battled against tough foes. They will be going against the Diamondbacks' ace, so it will be an uphill battle.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Miles Mikolas (1-1, 4.76 ERA) Mikolas will look to build upon a strong start against the mighty Philadelphia Phillies on April 8th. In that game, he went 6.2 innings, giving up just 6 hits, 2 runs, and 2 walks while striking out 3. After a miserable first start where he allowed 5 runs, Mikolas seems to have turned it around in his last 2 apperances. The D-Backs are hitting just .230/.328/.377 against righties, and their lineup features a fair amount of right-handed batters. Mikolas should be able to keep them at bay with his slider down and in while throwing his sinker up and away.
  • Former Cardinal prospect Zac Gallen (2-0, 2.25 ERA) will face off against the Cardinals. This will be his third appearance against his former organization. He is already near the top of most pitching leaderboards, and he will likely continue his tear through the National League that he's been on since 2020. Gallen struggles more against left-handed batters, so it makes sense that St. Louis's lineup is loaded with lefties today.
