Pittsburgh Pirates vs St. Louis Cardinals Match Preview and Free Picks

The St. Louis Cardinals used a near-perfect road trip to seize the first wild-card spot in the National League and hope to strengthen their hold with a strong homestand. St. Louis began the string with a solid victory and aim for another when it hosts the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday for the second contest of their three-game series.

The Cardinals scored twice in the first inning of the series opener and never looked back, rolling to a 5-2 triumph to move 1 1/2 games ahead of NL Central rival Milwaukee in the wild-card standings. Jose Martinez and rookie Tyler O'Neill belted two-run homers on Tuesday for St. Louis, which was back home following a 5-1 road trip.

The Cardinals have won 20 of their 25 games this month after a 6-7 showing during their final 13 contests of July. Colin Moran went 2-for-3 with an RBI in the series opener for the Pirates, who have lost six of their last seven games.


Pittsburgh Pirates vs St. Louis Cardinals Starting Pitchers Report

Pirates RH Trevor Williams (10-9, 3.44 ERA): Williams has been superb of late, allowing a total of four runs over his last seven starts and recording four scoreless outings in that span. The 26-year-old Californian is just 4-2 in that stretch, however, and is coming off a no-decision against Atlanta last Wednesday in which he gave up one run and two hits over six innings. Williams has struggled versus St. Louis, going 1-2 with a 5.85 ERA in five turns this season and 2-4 with a 6.93 mark in 10 career appearances (seven starts).

Cardinals RH Miles Mikolas (13-3, 2.94): Mikolas escaped Colorado on Friday with a no-decision after surrendering five runs and 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings. The 30-year-old Floridian is riding a 10-start unbeaten streak but has recorded only five victories since losing to Atlanta on June 29. Mikolas has yet to defeat Pittsburgh this season, settling for a pair of no-decisions before suffering one of his three losses on June 1 despite allowing just two runs - one earned - and six hits in six frames.
