The St. Louis Cardinals took a 9-4 beating by the NY Mets here at Citi Field in the season-opener Thursday afternoon. The two National League rivals will be back it again early Saturday after getting Friday off, and I like the Cards to keep this a close game with Michael Wacha on the mound.
Wacha has dominated the Mets through his seven career meetings, compiling a 4-1 record behind a 1.97 ERA. He has the current Mets roster limited to a .167 AVG over 96 at bats.
The Mets’ turn to Jacob deGrom who is 7-2 with a 4.03 ERA in nine career starts against the Cardinals, but his spring training participation was limited due to back stiffness. We can also note that the current Cards are batting a combined .278 over 90 at bats against him.
Free pick on St. Louis Cardinals +1.5.
