Chicago at St. Louis
Monday 09/13 08:15 PM Eastern
4 units on St. Louis -220 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
The Cubs are desperate for answers in the rotation and will turn to Jeff Samardzija tonight. He has made a few appearances out of the pen, but rendered ineffective with an 18.90 ERA. The Cubs will have a tough task facing the Cards at home where they are 43-24 on the season. Behind Jaime Garcia, who is 6-3 at home, working to a 1.85 ERA it will be even tougher. The Cubs are laying down vs. teams with a winning record, putting together just a 7-19 mark in their last 26 games. The Cards have been baseball's best when opening a series where they have gone 52-22 in their last 74 series openers. They have also gone 12-5 in their last 17 at home vs. a right hander, and 5-1 in their last six overall. This one goes to St. Louis.
