Sinking Pirates Close Series With Cardinals

Paul Simon's Slip Slidin' Away might be a good choice for background music in the upcoming video documenting the Pittsburgh Pirates' 2012 season.

Pittsburgh will look to stop a recent slide in the National League standings Wednesday night with the conclusion of an important series against the St. Louis Cardinals. ESPN will broadcast the contest starting at 7:00 p.m. (ET) as the Bucs send Wandy Rodriguez to the mound against Cardinals rookie Joe Kelly.

Opening MLB odds for the game listed Pittsburgh a slight -110 favorite with an 8½-run total that leaned 'over.'

Just as the lyrics of Simon's hit song go, the Pirates are getting closer to a playoff destination only to see those chances slowly disappearing. They came out of the all-star break in good form, made a few acquisitions near the trade deadline and stood a season-high 16 games over .500 (63-47) following a 7-6 home win against the Diamondbacks on Aug. 8.

Monday's 4-3 setback in the opener of this series left Pittsburgh 5-13 since that point with Tuesday's second game still pending. St. Louis was a slight favorite (-115) in Game 2 which also carried an 8-run total.

Rodriguez was one of the players the Pirates traded for in late-July, picking the seasoned southpaw up from the Houston Astros. He has pitched to a 4.86 ERA in five starts and a relief outing since the swap, with Pittsburgh 1-4 in the starting assignments and Rodriguez's only dubya coming when he was summoned from the 'pen.

That winning relief appearance did come against St. Louis with Wandy tossing two scoreless frames at the end of a 19-inning marathon. It is the only time Rodriguez has faced the Cards this season, though he has plenty of experience against them over the years while pitching in the NL Central (7-11 lifetime record, 3.73 ERA).

When Pittsburgh sat 63-47, St. Louis was 60-51 and trailed the Pirates by 3.5-games for second place in the division. The Cardinals have gone 11-6 since then and were a season-high 14 games above .500 entering Tuesday's game. They had just about turned the tables on the Bucs who were three behind the Redbirds who are now second in NL Central and NL wild card race.

Offense is definitely the name of the game for St. Louis who has not missed slugger Albert Pujols one little bit. The Cards lead the Senior Circuit in scoring (4.94 rpg), and they routinely sport a lineup that includes 5-6 hitters batting in the upper-.290s or better who are capable of beating you with the long ball or their legs.

Kelly has been working in relief the last couple of weeks, including a long stint in that 19-inning match that Rodriguez won. The young right-hander was called up in June to take the place of the injured Jaime Garcia, and will now move back into the rotation in place of Lance Lynn who shifts to the bullpen following a stretch of rough starts. Kelly's relief outing on Aug. 19 is his only experience vs. the Pirates who are 49-45 against righties.

This game will be the final regular season contest between the Cards and Pirates. The victory on Monday was the seventh for St. Louis in 13 meetings, and gave the Redbirds a 62-35 mark at PNC Park. All four games played in Pittsburgh entering Tuesday's tilt failed to reach the total. Game 1 snapped a 4-game 'over' run for the Cards while four of the Pirates' previous five games have gone 'under.'

Cardinals-Pirates wrap up series Wednesday

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS (71-58)

at PITSBURGH PIRATES (69-60)


First pitch: Wednesday, 7:05 p.m. EDT
Line: St. Louis -120, Pittsburgh +110, Total: 8½

In the NL Central’s dogfight for second place and standings in the NL Wild Card, the Pirates will host the Cardinals for the rubber game of a three-game set Wednesday night.

Lefty Wandy Rodriguez takes the hill for the Pirates in this one as the loser of three straight games, a span in which he has a 5.89 ERA with a 1.64 WHIP. Although he has a 4.06 ERA as a starter this season, with a 7-13 record, that ERA balloons to 4.86 in his six games (five starts, one relief outing) since being traded from the Astros to the Pirates. On Wednesday, he faces Joe Kelly, who has also struggled lately with a 4.76 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in his past three outings, despite earning a 2-1 record in this span. Overall, he is in the middle of a solid season though with a 3.41 ERA and 3-5 record in 12 starts. He will ride a hot Cardinals squad that has won six of its past eight games. In the same span, the Pirates have lost six of eight. And the Cardinals should remain hot facing a southpaw, against whom they are 27-12 (.692) this season. As only slight favorites, take ST. LOUIS in this one.

This rare five-star FoxSheets trend also favors the UNDER:

ST. LOUIS is 20-3 UNDER (87.0%, +14.5 Units) in road games vs. an NL team with a team batting average of .250 or worse this season. The average score was ST LOUIS 3.9, OPPONENT 3.2 - (Rating = 5*).

The Cardinals average a whopping 6.1 runs per game against left-handed starters, hitting an incredible .297 with a .362 OBP. Overall, they average 4.9 runs per game, which leads the National League. Kelly, who has never started against Pittsburgh, averages just 5.7 innings per start so he and the subpar Cards bullpen certainly needs that offensive firepower. The St. Louis relievers have a 3.99 ERA on the season and have already blown 16 saves. On the road, this ERA is even worse at 4.61. But given the offensive support they should get here, take the Redbirds.

This will be an important rubber match for the Pirates, who have protected their home field all season with a 39-26 (.600) record there. They have also done well by regularly beating NL Central opponents, against whom they are 32-23 (.582). Rodriguez has yet to face the Cardinals this season, but has won two consecutive decisions against them, carrying a stellar 1.33 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in this three-start span. Overall though, Rodriguez is 6-11 (team 8-12) with a 3.72 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 20 career starts versus St. Louis. Fortunately for him, he is supported by one of baseball’s best bullpens that carry a 2.96 ERA and 42 saves in 51 chances (82.4%) in 2012. Pirates relievers are even better at home with a 2.75 ERA and 1.10 WHIP.

Wednesday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Streaking

C.C. Sabathia, New York Yankees (13-3, 3.44 ERA)

The Yankees’ hefty lefty picked up where he left off in his return from the DL last week, giving up only one run on four hits and striking out nine in 7 1-3 innings of work versus Cleveland. That win extended Sabathia’s unbeaten streak to nine starts going back to early June.

Cole Hamels, Philadelphia Phillies (14-6, 2.99 ERA)

Hamels was dealt a no-decision in his most recent appearance, failing to tie his career high in wins. The Phillies’ high-priced hurler has been living up to his new contract, however, and hasn’t tasted defeat since August 2. Hamels has struggled with the Mets in the past, posting a career 5-10 record and 4.39 ERA against his NL East rival.


Slumping

Joe Blanton, Los Angeles Dodgers (8-12, 5.12 ERA)

Blanton has struggled since changing coasts, posting a 0-3 mark and 7.71 ERA in four starts for the Dodgers. The former Phillies pitcher hasn’t won a game since July 16 and has allowed 16 earned runs in his last 15 innings of work.

C.J. Wilson, Los Angeles Angels (9-9, 3.83 ERA)

Wilson can’t wait for August to get over. The Angels’ southpaw has just plain sucked this month, going 0-2 with a swollen 8.78 ERA in four August appearances. He gets another shot at the Boston Red Sox Wednesday after allowing six earned runs on eight hits through five innings versus Boston in his most recent outing.

Game of the day: White Sox at Orioles
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chicago White Sox at Baltimore Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles might not be content with just grabbing a wild card spot in the American League. The Orioles have won four straight and seven of nine to pull into a tie for the lead in the wild card race and draw within 3 1/2 games of the New York Yankees in the American League East. The team currently in the way of the Baltimore surge is the Chicago White Sox, who are trying to claim a playoff berth of their own.

The White Sox had won six straight before dropping the first two of a four-game set to the Orioles and are still two games up on the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. Chicago suffered a one-run loss in the opener and was held to one hit in seven innings on Tuesday by Chris Tillman, who is one of several players getting another chance and stepping up for Baltimore. Lew Ford is back in the majors for the first time since 2007 and has homered in back-to-back games, while Nate McLouth continues to give the Orioles quality at-bats. The White Sox have lost five in a row on the road.

TV: 7:05 p.m. ET, WGN (Chicago), MASN (Baltimore)

PITCHING MATCHUP: White Sox RH Dylan Axelrod (1-2, 5.63 ERA) vs. Orioles LH Joe Saunders (0-0, -.--)

Axelrod was recalled to take the spot of Gavin Floyd (elbow), who was placed on the disabled list on Monday. Axelrod has made six starts among 10 appearances in various stints for Chicago this season, last making a start at Boston on July 16, when he allowed one run and seven hits over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision. The 27-year-old owns a 1-2 record with a 4.99 ERA in nine career starts.

Saunders is another player getting a chance for Baltimore. The Orioles acquired the veteran left-hander from Arizona over the weekend. Saunders went 6-10 with a 4.22 ERA in 21 starts for the Diamondbacks but was knocked around for 14 runs and 19 hits in 9 2/3 innings during his last two turns. The Virginia native has plenty of experience in the AL after beginning his career with the Los Angeles Angels and is 4-3 with a 3.63 ERA in eight career starts against Chicago.

TRENDS:

* Under is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings.
* Under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Baltimore.
* White Sox are 1-5 in the last six meetings.

UMP TRENDS - Marvin Hudson:

* Under is 7-2 in Hudsons last nine games behind home plate.
* Home team is 13-4 in Hudsons last 17 games behind home plate.

WALK-OFFS:

1. The Orioles are expected to add another veteran left-hander in Randy Wolf, who was released by the Milwaukee Brewers. Wolf would be sent to the bullpen if the deal is completed.

2. Chicago RHP Jake Peavy was a candidate to take Wednesday’s start but is battling an eye infection. He is penciled in for Friday.

3. Baltimore CF Adam Jones matched a career high with his 25th home run on Tuesday. It was the 100th blast of his career.
