National League Central Division action gets our attention today as we preview and predict the St. Louis versus Chicago contest. Cardinals veteran RHP Adam Wainright faces Cubs rookie Kyle Hendricks in the battle on the bump and first pitch is slated for 2:05 PM ET on July 27, 2014, from Wrigley Field in Chicago, IL. We like the Cards in this rubber-match.
Cardinals: Still in flight in NL Central Division playoff race
Scuffing around since the All-Star break, with loses in four of their last five games, St. Louis looks for a series win over Chicago today. The Cubs won the first game 7-6 on Friday before the Cards rebounded with a 6-3 victory on Saturday. St. Louis turns to All- Star game starter Adam Wainright (12-5 ERA 2.02) as they look to inch closer to the Milwaukee Brewers in the race for first in the NC Central as the Cards sit three games behind the Brew Crew.
Chicago Cubs: Beginning to play out the string on another lost season
Needing to win 40 of their next 60 games to avoid a fifth straight non-winning season, one has to wonder when the Cubs will fully pull the plug on their 2014 MLB season. After trading away their best two pitchers earlier this month, Chicago should continue their fire-sale ways prior to the MLB non-waiver trade deadline on July 31 – that is if they have any players teams actually want. The Cubs 29th ranked MLB offense is in tough versus Wainright today.
