St. Louis Cardinals (Adam Wainwright) -121
Milwaukee Brewers (Yovani Gallardo) +111
There’s a good pitching matchup here in Beer Country on Saturday afternoon, as the ace for both the Brewers and the Cardinals will be on the bump against each other. RHP Adam Wainwright has really done well this season, and he has only allowed a total of eight runs over the course of his last five starts. In that mix includes a complete game shutout against none other than these Brewers. What is really getting Wainwright victories is his efficiency, and he is starting to look like the man that went 39-19 over the course of the 2009 and 2010 seasons combined. Wainwright hasn’t averaged more than 14.4 pitches per inning in each of his last five starts, and he only has three walks against 43 strikeouts for the season. Of course, if there is a man that has a chance to take care of Wainwright, RHP Yovani Gallardo would be the man to do the job. Gallardo has a 4.25 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP this year, but he has been a heck of a lot better in his last three starts than he was in his first three. We are concerned that Gallardo isn’t the same man that has won at least 14 games and has gone +7 in the win/loss column in each of the last three years, but we have to remember that he is still just 27 years old and clearly shouldn’t be in a position where he has lost it. Had these two met last season, Gallardo would have been the favorite. We think that he should be in this one as well.
