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

Miles Mikolas was forced to head to Japan to resume his professional career, a move that has led him to becoming one of the more improbable success stories of the season. Mikolas has yet to taste defeat in 10 starts in 2018 and seeks his seventh win when the St. Louis Cardinals continue their four-game series against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates.

Mikolas will be facing the Pirates for the third time in five weeks, coming away with a no-decision in each of the first two - including six innings of four-run ball at Pittsburgh on Sunday. St. Louis won the series opener in dramatic fashion, blowing an early four-run lead before rallying for five in the ninth capped off by Yairo Munoz's walk-off, three-run homer.

Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli, in his second game back after sitting out three, belted a three-run homer Thursday and also is 3-for-6 against Mikolas. Gregory Polanco had a pair of RBI doubles among three hits for Pittsburgh, which closed out the month by losing 10 of 13.
