The St. Louis Cardinals and the Arizona D’Backs have split the first two games of this series following a 5-3 Cardinals win on Saturday. I think we’ll see a close game here in the rubber match Sunday and would not be surprised to see Arizona win outright.
The D’Backs hand the ball to Taijuan Walker (0-0, 5.40 ERA) who has faced the Cardinals twice in his career (both last season), going 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA. He was however 6-5 with a 2.92 ERA in 16 road starts last year and I think he’ll have a solid outing today.
The Cards turn to Luke Weaver (1-0, 1.80) who’s only career appearance against Arizona resulted in a 4-0 loss (last year). Weaver worked five innings and allowed four runs. He was 3-2 with a 4.72 ERA here at Busch Stadium last year.
Maybe a slight advantage on the mound for the Cards in this matchup, but Arizona has the better bats and we can note that the Diamondbacks are 11-3 in their last 14 during Game 3 of a series.
