St. Louis Finally Playing Good Baseball

St. Louis was one of the worst teams in baseball through April, but they seem to have turned things around over the past week. The Cardinals started the week in Chicago by winning two of three and have now won the first two games of this series against the Red Sox. St. Louis has a lot of ground to make up, but it’s a long season and there is plenty of time to go.

Miles Mikolas is set to make his ninth start of the season and he will need to improve on his 5.40 ERA and 1.66 WHIP.

Nolan Gorman has had a great start to the season as he leads the Cardinals with nine home runs and 27 RBIs. Paul Goldschmidt is hitting a team high .310 batting average.

The Boston Red Sox Have Hit a Rough Patch

Boston has started well this season, but they have hit a bit of a rough patch having split their series in Atlanta and losing the first two games of this series. Still four games over .500, the AL East is so tough and the Red Sox find themselves in last place.

Corey Kluber will grab the ball for the eighth time this year and he’s had a rough start to 2023. The veteran righty has a 6.29 ERA and 1.40 WHIP through 34.1 innings pitched.

Rafael Devers is raking this season as he leads the Red Sox with 11 home runs and 36 RBIs. Masataka Yoshida is batting a team high .307.
