Analysis

STL +114

 

This pitching matchup is even between Mikolas and Taillon as both have been pitching to a similar level, however, the Cardinals have hit Taillon much better (.330) then the Cubs have hit Mikolas (.266). Both pitchers are coming off solid starts last time out and both gave up 3 runs the last time facing each respected team this season. The Cubs have struggled at the plate lately while hitting .227 over the last 15 days while the Cardinals have a combined .254 over the same span. The Cubs also have one of the worst bullpens in the MLB with a 4.44 ERA so the earlier they can get Taillon out of the game, the better.
