Free MLB Prediction
Max Scherzer has really been struggling as of late and the Nationals have lost their last 4 games with him on the hill. In his last 4 starts he has given up a combined 17 earned runs in 22 innings. The Cardinals had won 5 straight games with Michael Wacha getting the start before a loss in his last outing. The Cardinals are 21-6 in Wacha’s last 27 starts and they have won 19 of their last 26 games at home when he has gotten the call.
The Cardinals go for the sweep tonight and they will get it behind another strong outing from Wacha at home.
