The St. Louis Cardinals are inline to secure an NL Wildcard spot despite not playing well lately.  The Cardinals are currently 2nd in the NL Wildcard standings .5 game behind the San Francisco Giants. Pittsburgh is still in the mix as well but they are 4.5 games behind the lead with 24 games left on their schedule.  They need to start chipping away at the lead and they have a big opportunity tonight.  

The Cardinals send rookie Luke Weaver (1-2, 3.86) to the hill Tuesday for his 5th start. Weaver comes off a 3-1 loss to the Brewers over 6 innings pitched.  A bright spot for the young right hander is he struck out 10 Brewers batters in his latest start, a career high.

Cardinals vs Pirates Free ATS Expert Prediction 9-6-2016The Pirates have now dropped a game below .500 following Monday’s defeat to the Cardinals.  Pittsburgh starts veteran right-hander Ryan Vogelsong (3-4, 3.56) on the mound.  He was not crisp last time out, allowing five runs and six hits with three walks over 5 innings in a loss at the Cubs.

Cardinals are 5-1 in their last 6 when their opponent allows 5 runs or more in their previous game
Cardinals are 23-9 in their last 32 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game
Cardinals are 10-4 in their last 14 road games
Pirates are 11-27 in their last 38 home games vs. a team with a winning record
Pirates are 4-11 in their last 15 after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game
Pirates are 0-7 in their last 7 vs. National League Central
Pirates are 0-7 in their last 7 overall

While Vogelsong provides a veteran presence on the mound tonight for the Bucs, they are just 3-7 in Vogelsong’s last 10 starts in Pittsburgh.  This has to be a game the both teams dig deep for a meaningful win but the Cardinals are just the better team.  Pittsburgh has almost given away their postseason chances and I see the Cardinals finding a way to win this game.
