St. Louis Looking For Another Hot Start On Sunday

The St. Louis Cardinals hit four straight home runs in the first inning of Saturday's 7-6 win over the Phillies. Nolan Arenado hit the first home run with two outs on the board and was followed by home runs from Nolan Gorman, Juan Yepez and Dylan Carson. This was just the 11th time in major league history that a team has hit four straight home runs.

Philadelphia eventually tied the game up before the Cardinals went on to win thanks to Arenado's second home run of the game in the ninth inning. St. Louis was just 6-9 SU over its previous 15 games prior to Saturday's win.

Philadelphia Looking To Find Its Form After Cooling Off In Recent Weeks

The Phillies were one of the hottest teams in baseball last month, reeling off nine straight wins at the beginning of June and rolling that into a 15-2 SU record over the month's first 17 games. Philadelphia has cooled off since then however with a 5-7 SU record over their last 12 games.

The absence of Bryce Harper has taken its toll as the club is 3-3 SU since he was forced out of the lineup with an injured thumb. Bettors taking Philadelphia as their Cardinals vs Phillies prediction will be counting on the Phillies to avoid losing a second straight series at home.

Cardinals vs Phillies Pick & Insights

Cardinals: Keys to Victory

Adam Wainwright has compiled a 7-4 record with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP in 102 career innings pitched against the Phillies. Facing a tough opponent in Zack Wheeler on Sunday, Wainwright will need to continue his career success against Philadelphia to keep St. Louis in line for a Cardinals vs Phillies prediction upset.

Phillies: Keys to Victory

The Cardinals and Phillies have produced very similar results on offense this season, so this Sunday's matchup will likely come down to pitching. Wainwright has been great this season, but Zack Wheeler has been even better; and him keeping the Cardinals in check will be the key to a win as a Cardinals vs Phillies pick.
