The air more or less came out of Busch Stadium when Ben Francisco hit that three run homer yesterday, but we have to give the Redbirds a lot of credit. They just kept on fighting and had the winning run at the plate in the ninth inning, and they nearly pulled off the impossible. That being said, it is clear that this team isn’t as good as what Philly has to offer. If there’s a pitching matchup out there that Manager Tony LaRussa has to like, it’s this one. No, Edwin Jackson isn’t a horse that you want to be handing the ball to, but he did pitch rather consistently for the Redbirds since coming over from the Chicago White Sox. Roy Oswalt might be a 5-1 all-time pitcher in the playoffs, but a lot of that was way back in 2005 when Carlos Beltran’s amazing postseason was winning games for all of the Houston Astros pitchers. We have to remember that this is an aging pitcher with a 9-10 record in an injury riddled campaign. We’ll take our chances that this one goes the distance and comes back to the City of Brotherly Love on Friday. Philadelphia Phillies vs. St. Louis Cardinals Game 4 Predictions: St. Louis +105

MLB Predictions: Milwaukee Brewers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks
Date: Wednesday, October 5th, 9:37 ET
Location: Chase Field, Phoenix, AZ
MLB Playoffs Odds: Milwaukee -110, Over/Under 8.5 (over -120)
MLB Playoffs TV Schedule: TBS

The one thing that we have seen a lot of in this series are some good bats. There have been at least nine runs in back to back outings in this series, and the only game which went ‘under’ the ‘total’, there were a ton of shadows at Miller Park that had to be pitched through. That being said, we have no confidence in either Joe Saunders, a 12-13 pitcher, or Randy Wolf, a 13-10 pitcher who allowed a total of 10 runs in his last two starts combined. Gun to our head, in this pick ’em game, we’d be taking Arizona to send this series back to Miller Park. However, we think that we have a significantly better shot at cashing in on the ‘over’ with these two pitchers on the mound, especially knowing the potential that is there for both teams. Milwaukee Brewers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks Game 4 Predictions: Milwaukee/Arizona Over 8.5 -120
