St. Louis vs Milwaukee: Cardinals Battle the Brewers at Busch Stadium

St. Louis vs Milwaukee: Cardinals Battle the Brewers at Busch Stadium
Suddenly being pursued by Pittsburgh, St. Louis is looking for a 3-1 series win over Milwaukee during matinee Major League Baseball action today. Following a 7-3 win in the series opener, the Cardinals dropped a 4-3 decision on Friday before beating the Brewers 5-1 last night. The Cards need to keep winning, as their lead in the National League Central is just three games over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Buccos host the Red Birds for a huge three-game set beginning on Monday. Prior to that epic series though, the Cards and Brew Crew battle is slated for 2:15 PM ET on September 27, 2015, at Busch Stadium in Missouri.

St. Louis Cardinals: MLB overall lead is begin challenged

Rather comfortably out in front, with a six game lead over Pittsburgh in the NL Central Division at the end of August, St. Louis has stumbled ever so slightly during an 8-3 recent run. As a result, the Pirates have crept to within three games of the overall lead in the Majors. The Cardinals loss to the Brewers on Friday night was rare as St. Louis owns a 13-5 season series lead and the Cards are 9-2 vs Milwaukee since the beginning of May. This is the Cardinals final regular season home game and the Red Birds are sporting a MLB best 55-25 record in games played at Busch Stadium. 

Milwaukee Brewers: Not putting up much resistance as they close out their season

Although baseball is one of the few pro sports were teams will generally fight until the end of the season, regardless of their record, Milwaukee has read the writing on the wall and they are heading into the offseason quietly. After posting a decent 6-1 mark to open September, the Brewers have fallen flat as they are just 4-14 over their past 18 games. That stretch includes a 5-1 record against the Cardinals and the Brew Crew have been outscored by a 29-16 final count in those contests. Milwaukee’s 65-90 record is their worst mark since they went 67-94 during the 2004 MLB season.

Brewers vs Cardinals MLB Call: As has been the case in the majority of their games this season, St. Louis has a pitching edge here as RHP John Lackey (13-9 ERA 2.74) faces RHP Tyler Cravy (0-8 ERA 6.21) in the mound matchup today. Lackey is a pitching machine as he has allowed two runs or less in 15 of his last 19 starts and just 32 earned runs over his last 132.1 innings pitched. Bouncing in and out of the bullpen, Cravy has given up 29 runs (26 earned) over 37.2 innings pitched during twelve appearances in his MLB rookie season. Heading out on the road for their last six games, the Cardinals will give their Show Me State faithful one final home win here. Load up and prosper with St. Louis and a 1000 unit wager on the money line price posted at the Bet365 online sportsbook.
