Sportsbook: TopBet

Result: Win

Motivated from losses in six of their last seven games, including Game 1 of this series with Houston, the St. Louis Cardinals are hungry for a win tonight. I believe they get that victory behind Adam Wainwright, who has absolutely owned the Astros throughout his career.

Wainwright had given up just 1 earned run over 15 innings in two starts before allowing 7 earned runs in 6 2/3 innings against the New York Mets last time out. He's still one of the best pitchers in baseball, and there's no question he'll be hungry to bounce back from one of his poorest outings of the season.

Bud Norris was even worse in his last start, allowing 9 earned runs in 1 2/3 innings to the Colorado Rockies. He has now allowed 12 earned runs over 6 2/3 innings in his last two starts. This guy simply isn't even in the same class as Wainwright.

The Cardinals right-hander is 10-1 with a 1.38 ERA and 1.012 WHIP in 12 career starts against Houston. The Cardinals are 11-1 in those games, winning 92% of the time. Wainwright has only given up 1 earned run over 31 innings in his last four starts against Houston. Take the Cardinals Wednesday.
