St. Louis vs Chicago: Slumping Cardinals face Wilted White Sox

St. Louis vs Chicago: Slumping Cardinals face Wilted White Sox

St. Louis Cardinals: Still ruling the Majors top perch 

Heading into July, no team was hotter than St. Louis as the Cardinals were soaring with a 51-25 record. The Cards have cooled some though as they stumbled into the All-Star break with a 5-8 record – prior to opening the unofficial MLB second half with a 2-1 series win over the New York Mets. RHP Michael Wacha (10-3 ERA 2.93) gets the call for St. Louis tonight. Wacha is coming off a 6-5 loss to the Chicago Cubs but he normally rebounds well. The previous four times Wacha gave up four runs or more, over 16 starts this season, he has allowed 0, 1, 2 and 1 runs in his next start.

Chicago White Sox: Occupy the cellar in a few Major League Baseball categories

Forecast as a contender in the American League this season, Chicago has been anything but as a 42-48 record has the White Sox last overall and 12.5 games behind the Kansas City Royals in the AL Central Division. Offense is a problem for the South Siders as their 303 runs scored is dead last in the Majors. Chicago is also last in the on base percentage (.295) and slugging percentage (.357) categories. Rookie LHP Carlos Rodon (2-3 ERA 3.80) is coming off the best start of his young career as he tossed a two-hitter over six scoreless innings during a 1-0 Sox win over the Cubs on July 10.

White Sox vs Cardinals MLB Call: St. Louis is looking for a measure of revenge here as Chicago cruised into the Show Me State and rolled the Cardinals 7-1 and 2-1 to close June and open July. Sensing the bookmakers are correct in tagging the Cards as road chalk tonight, we will back St. Louis with a 300 unit wager on the money line posted on the SportsInteraction betting board.
