Mikolas' struggles continue
One thing that is quite concerning right now is the fact that Miles Mikolas has really been struggling lately. I was at the game Saturday night and saw the veteran right-hander struggle firsthand.
After allowing two first-inning runs, it appeared that Mikolas had settled into a groove. But all that changed when Kyle Schwarber hit a line drive that barely cleared the right field wall and made it a 5-1 game. Mikolas recovered and made it through six, but he's allowed five runs in each of his past two starts, and this is concerning given that the Cardinals gave him a two-year extension prior to Opening Day.
He's now 7-12 with an alarming 4.84 ERA.
