MLB Interleague: Chicago White Sox vs St. Louis Cardinals

MLB Interleague: Chicago White Sox vs St. Louis Cardinals

Cardinals continue to own the top MLB perch

Despite their loss to Chicago last night (2-1 in eleven innings) St. Louis is comfortably situated in first place overall in the Majors as they own a six game lead over the Kansas City Royals. The Cardinals enjoyed a solid June as they posted an 18-8 record and opened an eight game lead over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League Central division playoff race. A key component of the Cardinals MLB best pitching staff, RHP John Lakey (6-4 ERA 3.35) toes the rubber for the Red Birds tonight.

White Sox have wilted in the American League Central Division

Posted as a preseason favorite to win the AL Central, and possibly compete for the MLB World Series title, Chicago has crashed and burned during the first half of the 2015 MLB season. Thanks largely to the 10-16 record they posted in June, a mark that included an eight game losing streak, the White Sox are 33-42 overall and trial Kansas City by 11.5 games. Part of a mediocre pitching staff, that ranks 25th with a 4.18 team ERA, LHP Jose Quintana (3-7 ERA 3.95) gets the call for Chicago in this contest.

St. Louis vs Chicago Call: We get an advantage with the Cardinals in the battle on the bump in this contest tonight. Apart from his disastrous 11-3 loss in Colorado on June 10 (eight earned runs on 12 hits over just four innings) Lackey has been largely lights out as he allowed just 16 earned runs over 67 innings pitched during his other ten starts during May and June. We are soaring with the Red Birds at home with a 500 unit wager on the money line price posted at the BetOnline.com sportsbook.
