6:05 p.m. RHP Miles Mikolas (7-2, 2.43) vs. RHP Nick Pivetta (4-6, 4.25) FOX Sports Midwest/KMOXJune 18, 2018 at 9:11 am #56922
Interesting analysis from the betting community. I guess in their scenario, the Cards win narrowly due to Mikolas.
#Phillies are 0-5 in their last 5 after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game & 0-4 in Pivettas last 4 starts. #Cardinals are 1-8 in their last 9 after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game but 5-1 in Mikolas' last 6 road starts. #MLB #BeBold #STLCards pic.twitter.com/F45snxGtEF

The Cards have the ERA advantage in every game this series. However, this is the only one with a vast difference.
To go on the road and win a series against a team we will need to compete against for a playoff spot would be huge. Is Jose Martinez back for this series?June 18, 2018 at 12:11 pm #56960
Martinez and Holland are expected to be activated today.June 18, 2018 at 12:47 pm #56965
One of those two is good news for the team, unless Holland has gained such pinpoint accuracy as to purposely walk guys and give up hits and homers to lull MLB teams into a false sense of security on his comeback.
Looking forward to seeing Jose back tonight and maybe Holland soon if the Cards are up by 7 runs.June 18, 2018 at 1:06 pm #56967RatsbuddyParticipantFree
Bring in Holland if we are up 7 runs?
You better get Hicks and Norris warmed up if you do.

Seven runs up? No. Seven runs down? Perfect spot for him if he’s got to be on the roster.
I hope he really has it figured out now, but if he flames out this time, he might soon get the Peralta/Broxton treatment from last year.June 18, 2018 at 2:19 pm #56971
On a positive note Ozuna was named NL player of the week. .455 batting avg and 4 homers.June 18, 2018 at 3:15 pm #56974
Martinez back, Voit down. Mo says they will make a decision on Holland in the next day or two.June 18, 2018 at 3:30 pm #56976June 18, 2018 at 6:16 pm #56989
The Cards go quietly in the first. Hopefully they can wear Pavetta down and get to the soft Phillies bullpen early tonight.June 18, 2018 at 6:23 pm #56992
Mikolas in trouble in the first. A single and a walk to open up.June 18, 2018 at 6:24 pm #56993
Homer. 3-0 Phillies before they even get an out.June 18, 2018 at 6:28 pm #56994
Phillies are crushing Mikolas. A single smoked off the wall and still no out.June 18, 2018 at 6:38 pm #56997
Great play by FrancoJune 18, 2018 at 7:07 pm #57003colhuskerParticipantFree
And the one guy who has been good, is now bad too. Odds of coming back?June 18, 2018 at 7:09 pm #57005
Down three runs against a worn out Phillies staff? I wouldn’t say the Cards are favored but they could come back, sure.June 18, 2018 at 7:23 pm #57007
Miles has settled down a bit. It would be nice if he got through 6 innings and the Cards figured out Pivetta a bit.June 18, 2018 at 7:25 pm #57009thejagerParticipantPaid - Annual
A guy isn’t allowed to have one poor inning without being labeled bad?
He’s been lights out since they got the bloop 4 th run
Carp gets us back to 3 with a HR
Looks like they don’t have an idea on Pivettas release point IMO
Only the 5thJune 18, 2018 at 7:29 pm #57011
Mayers warming up. Mikolas back out.June 18, 2018 at 7:31 pm #57012thejagerParticipantPaid - Annual
2nd time through only Carp seemed to see him better. Hopefully the 3rd time is the charm.
Worked against quintana last night
Too many pitches in 1st and 2nd. And it being really hot out I think you don’t push him if he starts to wear down here in the 5thJune 18, 2018 at 7:33 pm #57016Euro DandyParticipantFree
Pivetta picked a great night to break out of his pitching woes and carve up an opponent. Cards not making much contact at the plate.June 18, 2018 at 7:40 pm #57020PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
I think what we’re looking at here is the case of Cy Pivetta catching up with the league…..took him a while, but I think he’s figured it all out. 5 innings complete….9 Ks….a walk….just one lone blemish….a 3rd inning Carpenter jack. Cy Pivetta….cannot be stopped….your only hope…..try as hard as you can to merely contain him.June 18, 2018 at 7:42 pm #57022
Matheny really wants Dexter to have some success. I would have really preferred Garcia.
Well, that was a horrible error by their SS so Fowler gets on base.June 18, 2018 at 7:45 pm #57025
What is the proportion of pitchers that pitch their best game of the season against the Cards? It sure seems like this happens about once a week.
