Free Pick on St Louis Cardinals

St. Louis vs. Kansas City, 05/27/2013 14:10
Money Line: -114 St. Louis

The Cardinals will have a substantial advantage at the starting pitcher position today. Adam Wainwright has posted a 2.38 ERA and 0.972 WHIP this season. He has a 6-3 record and has been unbelievable solid in his last three starts. His ERA and WHIP improve to 1.61 and 0.672 respectively in his last three games and he has averaged 7.4 innings per start in that span.

James Shields will get the start for Kansas City today. Shields is 0-3 in his last three start suffering losses to Houston, Oakland and a beat up Yankees team. He does not have the luxury of getting run support from his inconsistent team members. The Royals average just 3.7 runs per game at home with a .254 batting average and considering they will be facing one of the best pitchers in the league those numbers should only get worse today.
