The Cardinals are beginning to make some noise again in the NL Wild Card standings after winning two-from-three against the Reds earlier in the week.
They are currently ranked third in the NL Central with a 68-64. Adam Wainwright (13-7) has been a big reason for the Redbirds’ turnaround, and I think they represent some real value with the veteran righty on the mound on Saturday.
Wainwright has allowed only nine earned runs in his last seven starts, while he’s also piled up 44 strikeouts during that same time frame.
The Brewers are comfortably at the NL Central summit with an 82-53 record, 10 games ahead of the Reds. They are aiming to bounce back after their four-game winning run ended at San Francisco on Thursday.
Freddy Peralta (9-3) has pitched to a tidy 2.45 ERA himself this season, but the fact he’s missed a couple of starts due to injury makes him a little suspect.
