Will Cardinals Continue To Steamroll Mets?

The St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets have quickly become acquainted, as they will play their sixth game against each other in less than two weeks Wednesday. After dropping the first game on July 7, the Cardinals have won each of the last four against the Mets while outscoring them 21-4.

Shark Bites
  • The Mets are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games as favorites.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of the Cardinals' last 15 games on the road against the Mets.
  • Paul DeJong is 11-for-22 with 5 doubles and 4 HRs against the Mets this season.

The Cards will send Mike Leake to the bump for the third game of a four-game set Wednesday. Leake has dropped off from his blistering start of the season but has allowed three runs or less in each of his past five starts. However, the right-hander struggled with command in his most recent start, as he walked a season-high five batters in 5.0 innings.

A myriad of injuries and ineffectiveness has struck everybody in the Mets starting rotation except Jacob deGrom. The fireballer has been amazing recently, as deGrom has a 1.53 ERA in his past six starts while pitching at least 7.0 innings in every outing. The Cardinals were able to get after deGrom on July 7 with St. Louis recording eight hits and four home runs against the Mets ace.
