(MLB) San Diego vs. St. Louis, 08/28/2023 7:45 PM, Score: 4 - 1
Point Spread: -1.50 | -118.00 San Diego (Away)
Result: Win
While the Padres have struggled, the Cardinals at 2-8 (L10) and are even worse at the moment. Wainwright, stuck at 198 wins, just can't seem rescue his season. His ERA is very high in August, an insult to his success and longevity. Getting 199 today won't be easy as he will square off against one of the best pitchers this year in Blake Snell. Snell will give you 6 innings on average, with a 2.77 ERA over his last 7 starts. He has a .194 OP BA over the last two months. Even if Wainwright should pitch well, there is every chance the Cards won't deliver on offense. They are hitting a miserable .175/.543 over the last week, dead last in the MLB, and the bullpen has an ugly 6.82 ERA. The Padres are just barely surpassing St. Louis on offense, but other than in Sunday's game, they have been getting acceptable relief pitching. Take the Padres to ruin Wainwright's day. San Diego on the run line at -1.5.
