The MLB is back in action this evening as the St Louis Cardinals will face the Chicago White Sox in game one of a brief two-game set from Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, The Cardinals will give the nod to Miles Mikolas and the White Sox will give a chance to by Dylan Covey.
St Louis Cardinals Form
The St Louis Cardinals had a tough time in their last game against the Giants. It seems that their offence was solid as they were efficient in scoring. However, their pitching was not at the needed level. The end result was a 13-8 defeat. In the previous game, the Cardinals won with a score of 3-2. These recent results just show how inconsistent St Louis has been lately. St Louis has averaged 4.46 runs per game and has allowed 4.32 runs per game on the road for the year.
On the offensive side of the game, the Cardinals have some below average stats this season as they are placed on the 17th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.38 runs per game, while also being 16th in hitting at .245 and 11th in homers with a total of 113. On the mound, they some good stats as they are placed on the 9th place in the league in ERA at 3.75 while also being 13th place in WHIP at 1.22 and 20th place in K’s with 736.
Chicago White Sox Form
The Chicago White Sox are continuing their struggles this season. They were demolished by the Astros in the previous series and with the last 2-1 defeat, the White Sox have lost their last five games. It seems that this is just not their season as their form just can’t improve. The White Sox have averaged 3.95 runs per game and have allowed 4.72 runs per game at home this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the White Sox have been poor as they are placed on the 23rd place in the league in scoring, putting up 3.99 runs per game, while also ranking 20th place in hitting at .243 and 19th place in homers with a total of 96. On the mound, they have been poor as they are 29th in the league in ERA at 4.93, while also being 28th in WHIP at 1.47 and 29th in K’s with 664.
The St Louis Cardinals are not playing well at the moment. It seems that they can’t find the right balance between their pitching and their offence in their recent games. On the other side, the White Sox have been struggling all season and there are no signs that they will turn the tide. This game will be a great opportunity for the Cardinals to bounce back after the two defeats and to regain some of their confidence. I expect a Cardinals win, especially because they will be facing a poor White Sox team.
