St Louis Cardinals at San Diego Padres
You know what the Padres have done? they went over .500 at home 35-34 coming off a home series win against Arizona. Quite impressive considering their start . They have won two series in a row and as the record indicates they are tough at home. Add Eric Stults to today's start and San Diego looks pretty strong. Stults pitching quality games, beat LA ace Kershaw and the Dodgers in last start as +200 road dog, blanked Atlanta before that. Winner of 4 out of 6 and Padres are 5-1 in his start. St Louis is in the hunt, 2nd in NL Central 8.5 behind the Reds, and window of opportunity is quickly closing. Jamie Garcia taking the ball for the Red Birds coming off a quality win, but alternating quality games. He does not fair well on the road and so is the Cardinals at 32-36. Today's line has quickly narrowed, but I think the San Diego play is over done, Stults is pitching good games, but I think he's weaker at home and not relying on Garcia to shoulder the game, but he does have a win over San Diego and matches well against NL West. St Louis 19-10 against the West and dominates San Diego. Take the slight favorite St Louis on the road.
