5* NATIONAL LEAGUE GAME OF THE MONTH: Cardinals -119
I was fortunate to get a win with St Louis last night, as the Cardinals scored four runs in the top of the 9th to force extra innings and then two more in the top of the 10th to get the win. They have now won four straight overall. In those four wins, St Louis has scored a ridiculous 38 runs.
I have been all over the Cardinals in each of their last 3 games, and there is no way I'm backing off them tonight. With last nights come-from-behind win, St Louis is playing with a ton of confidence. Adding even more value to the Cardinals is the fact that the Marlins have now lost 16 of their last 19 overall.
St Louis also appears to have a clear edge on the mound, as they send out Kyle Lohse against Carlos Zambrano.
Lohse is 6-2 with a 2.85 ERA in 15 starts this season. He is 4-1 with a 2.83 ERA on the road and is 1-1 with a strong 1.66 ERA over his last 3 starts!
Zambrano is just 4-5 with a 4.01 ERA in 14 starts, but it gets a lot worse. He is just 1-3 with a 6.12 ERA at home and 0-2 with a 13.50 ERA and 2.787 WHIP over his last 3 starts. BET THE CARDINALS!
