The MLB is back in action on Tuesday evening as the St. Louis Cardinals will face the Milwaukee Brewers at the Busch Stadium, as part of a three-game series. The Brewers will start this game with the experienced old left-hander Brent Suter. On the other side, the Cardinals will give the ball to the solid right-hander Carlos Martinez.
Milwaukee will go into this game with Brent Suter who will make his third start of the campaign. Suter was in a bad form in his latest outing, allowing five runs (four earned) in five innings against the Cubs and he was tagged with the loss. Moreover, his record in his first game of seasons was conceding three runs in five innings to the Padres. Suter enjoyed a great form last year as he registered a 3.42 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. His record against the Cardinals is 8 conceded runs with a 0-2 record in 16 career innings against the Cardinals.
On the positive side, Eric Thames managed a solid three RBI’s in the games against the Cubs. His recent record also included three homers with five RBI’s on the season. The experienced slugger enjoyed top-class form in the previous season, with a score of 31 homers along with 63 RBI’s. The Brewers current is producing an average of 3.30 runs per game, placing them on the 23rd spot in the League. They have a 3.87 team Earned Run Average, placing Milwaukee on 15th spot overall.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals will give Carlos Martinez his third start this season. The experienced right-hander had a very good game against the Brewers in his latest start, scoring 8.1 shutout innings of four-hit ball to go with solid 10 strikeouts. Martinez has closed down the Brewers during his time in the MLB, sporting a solid 1.98 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP combined with a 6-4 score in 91 innings.
On the bright side, Jose Martinez enjoys a great form these days, as he managed two home runs along with a team-leading eight RBI’s on the season. The experienced first baseman played well against the Milwaukee last year, belting three homers combined with 10 RBI’s, and he went 3 for 11 with one RBI against them last week. The Cardinals currently have an average of four runs per game, placing them on the 18th spot overall. They are recording a solid 3.78 team ERA, ranking them 13th in the MLB.
Based on the current form and the statistical data, I think that the Cardinals will win here. It seems that Carlos Martinez is enjoying a fine form these days. On the other side, Suter has not been in a good form in his two starts this season, allowing eight runs in 10 innings. My general expectation is that the Cardinals will provide a solid game. Combined with the Brewers latest struggles, I believe that St. Louis Cardinals should come out as winners.
