06/27/2012 19:10 EDT,
Score: 3 - 5
Money Line: +120 St. Louis
Today's winner is St. Louis over Miami. This is my Grand Slam Play.
St. Louis has won 5 straight, including both games in this series. Overall, the Cardinals have taken 5 in a row over the Marlins. Just in their current 5 game streak, St. Louis is averaging 8.6 RPG. The offense is in the top five in a slew of categories. Yadier Molina has homered in the L3 games while leading the unit with a .317 BA. Their lineup is impossible to pitch around. Molina, Beltran, Holiday, Furcal, Jay, Craig, and Schumaker strike fear in opposing pitchers. Joe Kelly gets the nod today. The RH is 1-0 with a 3.52 ERA on the season. The Marlins are just 3-17 their L20 and sitting in last place in the NL East. The team ranks 20th or worse in almost every offensive and defensive categories. They post a mere 3.76 RPG while allowing 4.26 a contest. Today, Anibal Sanchez is throwing for Miami. The RH is 3-6 with a 3.94 mark, including a dismal 1-5, 5.40 record at home. Sanchez has been getting crushed, going 0-2 with a 7.47 ERA and walking a ton of batters, just in his L3 outings. The Cardinals are 20-6 their L26 games played at the Marlins and 5-0 their L5 games played on the road. The Marlins are 32-65 their L97 games played vs. teams with a winning record and 2-12 their L14 games played at home. Take St. Louis. Thank you.
