The Cardinals might be the best bet on the entire board with America celebrating its Independence Day.
Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals
Milwaukee put its second-ranked offense on display on Saturday, racking up 19 hits and 12 runs in a blowout win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium. The run total was the most the Brewers’ offense has tallied since June 14. “Days like this are few and far between for a pitcher of his caliber,” said All-Star outfielder Ryan Braun about putting up such a total against Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter. The Brewers added two home runs to its NL-leading total of 101, which is third in the majors behind Toronto and Boston. The Brewers are now 20-22 on the road (+200) and have gone 4-8-1 in series play away from Miller Park. Milwaukee’s offense has been sparked from the top this season, with Rickie Weeks ranking tops in the majors in home runs (14) and RBI (49) for a leadoff batter.
Baltimore would capture its first road series victory of the year with a win today or tomorrow. The Orioles are 0-9-1 in road series since September 11-13, 2009.
The Orioles are now 13-12 in the all-time series against Washington. They won the season series in 2009, 4-2, taking two of three in D.C.
OF Adam Jones has hit safely in 13 of his last 14 games, going 18-for-53 and raising his average from .218 to .254.
Baltimore is 10-20 this year against right-handed starters (-710). The team has compiled a .257 batting average against righties while scoring 3.7 runs per game.
Pitching staff has allowed at least one run in the eighth inning or later in 24 of their 43 games this season. The Orioles have allowed the tying or go-ahead run to score in the eighth inning or later 10 times.
SP Brad Bergesen has allowed just 22 runners in 19.1 innings in his last three starts, compared to 27 runners in 10.1 innings of work in his first three starts of the season.
Bergesen is just 1-5 with a 4.45 ERA in his career away from Camden Yards.
