The Rockies have the overall statistical advantage at the plate, but lets not overlook that the stats have been inflated from the team home area. Blackmon is batting .330 to direct Colorado. Nolan Arenado tops the group. Kolten Wong is batting .275 to lead St. Louis. Paul Goldschmidt is the team leader with 28 HRs and 68 ribbies.
Marquez has stats where his home area is located about the year when you consider. He has wins in his last two outings in a row. Last time out, he gave up two earned runs over five innings in a win over the Marlins. Mikolas has been roughed up to 10 total earned runs over his last two appearances. He also gave up five earned runs over five innings in a loss to the Reds last time out.
The Cardinals have a clear advantage when the relievers get involved and among their top bullpens in MLB. Marquez has continued five innings or more. Mikolas was able to hit this mark in every one of his last 10 starts, however he has declines in three of his last four outings.
Tonights game will mark the first meeting of these two clubs this season. Theyll also be hooking up for a place in Colorado following month.
The Cardinals would be the superior team . They are playing well with a team thats in the middle of a playoff push plus a mark over the past ten games of 7-3. The Rockies are slogging through a season.
St. Louis gets the bullpen advantage, and thats a good thing based on the recent performance of Mikolas. We have a critical problem expecting a starter whos allowed five earned runs in starts. Even the Rockies bats are effective over the last two games with 14 runs, so that they have a shot.
St. Louis must win the show, however, the Rockies can steal 1 tonight. We enjoy Colorado to get the success.
