St Louis Cardinals Analysis

St. Louis Cardinals enter this game with a 61-78 record, not exactly impressive when taken at face value. Offensively, they boast a batting average of.254 and have scored 625 runs this season; 1195 hits, 190 homers, an on-base percentage of.328 and an slugging percentage of.428 are all impressive stats but leave much to be desired when compared with some of the league’s elite squads. Overall, their offense has been modest but leaves much room for improvement when put up against some of its top teams.

Adam Wainwright hasn’t done much to improve their chances. With an atrocious record of 3-10, an ERA of 8.1, and a WHIP of 1.98 across 83.1 innings pitched this year, Wainwright has struggled mightily this season – leading to 45 strikeouts against 33 walks – making it essential that their offense step up their game as soon as possible.

Atlanta Braves Analysis

At 90-48, the Atlanta Braves come into this game boasting an impressively dominant 90-48 record and boasting an incredible offense with 1293 hits, 263 homers, an.344 on-base percentage and slugging percentage that make them one of MLB’s premier units this year.

Max Fried, their starting pitcher, has had an outstanding year. Boasting an outstanding 6-1 record with an ERA of 2.52, WHIP of 1.15 over 60.2 innings pitched and 63 strikeouts to 13 walks ratio within those innings, Fried has proven himself as a reliable performer on the mound that could pose trouble for an already struggling Cardinals squad.
