The Baltimore Orioles and the St. Louis Cardinals meet in MLB action from Busch Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Baltimore Orioles will look to build on back-to-back wins after a 6-1 win over Kansas City last time out. Austin Hays leads the O’s with 34 hits and 12 RBIs including 9 doubles and a .327 batting average while Anthony Santander has 3 home runs with 12 RBIs. Cedric Mullins has 28 hits with 8 doubles and a team-high 4 home runs while Jorge Mateo has 6 doubles and Ryan Mountcastle also has 30 hits with 4 home runs of his own as well as 16 RBIs this season. Kyle Bradish will get the start for the Orioles in this one and is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 5 strikeouts this season.

The St. Louis Cardinals will look to bounce back from back-to-back losses, settling for a split with San Francisco after a 4-3 loss to the Giants last time out. Nolan Arenado leads the Cards with 7 home runs, 24 RBIs, 9 doubles, 34 hits and a .330 batting average while Tommy Edman has a .292 batting average and 28 hits with a pair of triples, 3 home runs and 14 RBIs. Dylan Carlson has 6 doubles, Paul Goldschmidt has 7 doubles and Tyler O’Neill has 19 RBIs as well up to this point in the year. The Cardinals did not have a starting pitcher announced at the time that this article was posted.

I get the reasoning for either side in this one, but I’m looking at the under here. I think Kyle Bradish comes to play, as he has for much of the year, and I’m not reading into his ERA as it’s a small enough sample size for that. On the flipside, St. Louis doesn’t have a starter announced, but the offense hasn’t been the most consistent for the Cards and if Bradish keeps the Cards down, I don’t know if the O’s will muster up enough offense to take advantage so give me the under here.
