Philadelphia at St. Louis
Thursday 04/30 01:45 PM Eastern
1 unit on Philadelphia +170 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.7) RESULT: LOSS
Philadelphia is 2-2 the last four games, even winning as a +135 dog at St. Louis, 4-1. The offense has scored 16 runs in those contests. Philadelphia is 0-4 in the four starts made by 22-year-old star prospect David Buchanan, but that doesn't tell the whole story. The kid has thrown well, allowing 3 and 3 runs in each of his last two starts. The Cardinals are 2-2 the last four games, with both losses as favorites of -145 and -130. Tim Cooney goes for St. Louis, making his MLB debut, stepping in for injured ace Adam Wainwright. His minor league ERA in 2014 was 3.47 and in 2015 is 3.63, so he doesn't have overpowering stuff. The Phillies are 6-2 with umpire Laz Diaz behind home plate, while the Cardinals are 2-5 with Diaz behind home plate. Play Philadelphia.
