St. Louis vs Arizona: Cardinals And Diamondbacks Duel in The Desert

St. Louis vs Arizona: Cardinals And Diamondbacks Duel in The Desert

St. Louis Cardinals: Still occupying top MLB perch

What has been an amazing season continues in St. Louis as the Cardinals own a MLB best 81-45 record and they are four games clear of the Kansas City Royals in the race for first overall in the Majors. St. Louis went into a mini skid as the posted a 3-4 record prior to landing in Arizona. Back to their winning ways, the Cardinals won the first three of this four game series with the Diamondbacks by a 17-5 margin. St. Louis leads Pittsburgh by 4.5 games in the competitive National League Central.

Arizona Diamondbacks: Playing out the string on an inconsistent season

In tough in the National League West, that includes the Los Angeles Dodgers (70-56) and defending World Series Champion San Francisco Giants (67-59); Arizona has been in between a rock and hard place all year long. Inconsistent sums up the Diamondbacks MLB 2015 season, as Arizona is 62-64 and sit eight games behind the Dodgers. The Snakes are in worse shape in the NL Wild Card race as they are 11.5 games out of that chase. Prior to this recent clubbing by the Cards, Arizona swept a four-game set, by a 26-14 margin, versus the Reds in Cincinnati. The Dbacks 569 runs is 4th best overall.

Diamondbacks vs Cardinals MLB Call: Based on recent form, the pitchers dual is fairly even here as RHP Carlos Martinez (12-6 ERA 2.65) faces Rubby De La Rosa (11-5 ERA 4.32). Martinez has given up 14 runs (11 earned) during four August starts while De La Rosa is enjoying his best month of the season as he's allowed eight runs during four outings. Series sweeps are a tough task - especially the four-game variety on the road.  Expecting a close contest here, we are backing the Diamondbacks with a 500 unit wager on run line price posted on the betting board at the TopBet online sportsbook.
