The St. Louis Cardinals and the Washington Nationals continued their series on Saturday from St. Louis. All odds for all games can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Cardinals are very close to clinching a return to the postseason and did themselves a great service by winning on Friday night. They exploded for 12 runs on 12 hits which was plenty for starter Adam Wainwright who allowed just one run over six innings to take the win. In an important game again tonight for the home team they will send Kyle Lohse to the mound who has been their best pitcher all season. Lohse is coming off wins in his last two starts and is pitching to an impressive 2.77 ERA for the season.
The Nationals have already clinched their spot in the postseason and are now playing for that elusive home-field advantage. They were routed on Friday night by the Cardinals and will look to get back on track tonight behind the right arm of Chien Ming-Wang. This season Wang has worked out of the bullpen and the starting rotation allowing 47 hits in 30 innings of work this season.
The Cardinals have a lot more to play for than the Nationals right now, they are at home, and they have a prohibitive pitching advantage. For these reasons we will take St. Louis as a moneyline favorite at home so read sportsbook reviews.
