St. Louis Cardinals vs Pittsburgh Pirates Match Preview and Free Picks
The St. Louis Cardinals seek their first series win in three weeks when they visit the Pittsburgh Pirates for the rubber match of a three-game set Sunday afternoon. Jack Flaherty threw six solid innings and Matt Carpenter slugged a home run in the Cardinals' 4-1 win in Saturday's contest, which snapped their three-game slide.
Jose Martinez added three hits for St. Louis, which is 0-2-3 over its last five series. The win did not come without issue, however, as Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler left Saturday's game in the fourth inning after being hit on the knee with a pitch and he will be re-evaluated Sunday.
Miles Mikolas gets the nod in the finale for the Cardinals looking to follow up his first career shutout last Monday against Kansas City. Jameson Taillon goes for the hosts as he aims to snap an eight-start streak without a win.
