1 unit on Milwaukee +140 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.4) RESULT: LOSS
St. Louis is struggling to reach the finish and plays its sixth straight road game tonight, on a 3-8 run. St. Louis is not a strong offensive team at #24 in baseball in runs scored and slugging. Cardinals lefty Jaime Garcia allowed a season-high six runs in a season-low 4 1/3 innings of an 11-0 loss in Cincinnati on Thursday for St. Louis' most-lopsided setback of the year. Garcia has a an ERA a full run higher on the road than at home. They face a Milwaukee club playing its second straight home contest after a long trip. The Cardinals are 0-4 against a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30, as well as 2-5 versus a right-handed starter. They face Brewers righty Wily Peralta (4.14 ERA), with the team 5-2 in his last seven home starts. The team is 3-0 his last three starts, allowing 2, 0 and 1 run. Milwaukee is also 5-1 his last six starts. The Brewers are 4-1 in their last five home games, plus 5-2 against a team with a winning percentage above .600, so jump on the home dog and play Milwaukee.
