1* St. Louis (8:05 ET): After a one-game interleague interlude, where they surprisingly defeated the Texas Rangers here at the Friendly Confines, the Chicago Cubs return to Senior Circuit action Tuesday night as they start a brief two-game set with long-time rival St. Louis. Admittedly, I lost my free play going against the Cubbies yesterday. Needless to say, I expect a much different result here.....
Lance Lynn gets the start for the Redbirds tonight. He's 4-0 all-time in four starts vs. the Cubs w/ a 2.96 ERA and lately has been simply phenomenal, going 3-0 with a 0.86 ERA his last three starts overall. In six starts this season, he's 5-0 with a 2.765 ERA. Over the last two seasons, Lynn owns a team start record of 17-1 against NL Central opponents. So what I'm saying is to expect a quality start here from Lynn.
Prior to beating Texas yesterday, Chicago had lost four straight. They were swept over the weekend here at home by Cincinnati. St. Louis has won six straight, including their first-ever four-game sweep in Milwaukee over the weekend. The Cards are 20-12 L32 vs. the Cubs. 1* St. Louis.
