Arizona already lost the first two in this series and will go with AA call-up Barry Enright. Enright is a second round pick from the 2007 draft and has been pitching at AA Memphis, which is a far cry from facing Albert Puhols and company. The D-Backs are 12-30 on the road this season and have been carried by their offense. The problem is the offense has suffered a brown out and over the last seven games have tallied just 19 runs, less than 3 a game. This team has enough trouble winning on the road when they are scoring. The Diamondbacks are more recently 3-18 in their last 21 road games and, with a lineup in a slump, a AA rookie pitcher doesn't appear to be the solution today. The Cards are tough at home with a 25-12 mark, but even tougher against poor road teams winning less than 40% of the time on the road. The Cards sport a 37-15 mark against these not so road warriors. The D-Backs 8-22 in their last 30 here as well. I'll go with St. Louis in this one.
