Philadelphia Phillies vs St. Louis Cardinals: prediction for the MLB game
The Philadelphia Phillies hosted the Atlanta Braves before this series. They managed to win only one game out of three. The victory over the Braves in game three was followed by a solid performance against the Cardinals (5:3). But the team failed to extend this winning streak and suffered a 6:7 defeat to St. Louis last night. The Phillies allowed five runs in the first inning and couldn't recover after that.
St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals have mostly played at their home arena recently. In the previous series, the Cardinals defeated the Miami Marlins by winning two out of three games. After that, the team travelled to Philadelphia, where they fell to the Phillies in the first game of this series (3:5). In game two, the visitors got revenge and prevailed over the Phillies with a score of 7:6.
In 6 head-to-head games out of 7, the teams failed to score more than 8 runs.
The St. Louis Cardinals went undefeated in the first inning in 6 head-to-head games in a row.
The Phillies have home advantage and should capitalize on it in game three. In the previous game, the hosts had a terrible first inning, which cost them a win, and today the Phillies will be looking for redemption. We believe that the home team will get the upper hand here.
