Mike Lundin‘s Cardinals vs. Royals Free Pick
Start Time: August 8, 2017, 8:15 PM
The St. Louis Cardinals have scored a total of 24 runs through their last two games. I think they’ll keep raking tonight when facing the Royals’ Jason Vargas on the mound.
Vargas (13-5, 3.10 ERA) is s 1-3 with a 6.85 ERA through his last five starts, and he has posted a 4.09 ERA in four career meetings with the Cards. Matt Carpenter is 4-for-4 against the left-hander, and he is batting .451 at Kauffman Stadium throughout his career. We can also note that the Cardinals are 7-2 in their last nine games vs. a left-handed starter.
The Cards turn to Michael Wacha (8-4, 3.66 ERA) who is 2-1 with a 2.42 ERA in four previous meetings with KC, and he is 5-1 with a 1.90 ERA through his past seven starts.
The Cardinals are 28-11 in the last 39 meetings at Kauffman Stadium.
My free pick is on the St. Louis Cardinals ML.
