MLB - Royals @ Cardinals
(MLB) Kansas City vs. St. Louis, 07/10/2024 7:45 PM, Score: 8 - 5
Money Line: -121.00 St. Louis (Home)
Result: Loss
I'm on the Cardinals in this night game 2 double header of the Royals @ Cardinals for these reasons:

- Two elite pitcher in this matchup. Sonny Gray and Michael Wacha are starting on the mound for their respective teams and each pitcher has been striking out Bats this season.

- Sonny Gray has 6 or more strikouts in 5 of the last 6 starts, 115 strikouts in 92 inning pitched, and a 3.30 ERA. I think this total is higher than normal for this game because of Sonny's recent slippage in runs allowed, however this KC Royals team is not one for him to fear especially at home. Royals are giving up an average of 5.47 strikeouts to right handed pitchers per game. Sonny is going to have a good night tonight.

- Michael Wacha has only allowed 3 runs in his last 16 innings pitched, and his old team shouldn't be a hassle to keep the runs to a minimum as his innings pass. The issue is, that the Cardinals are playing better baseball all around and should be the better batting rotation in The end, especially when Wacha leaves the mound.
