St. Louis Cardinals vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

The St. Louis Cardinals didn’t announce a starting pitcher at the time this article was published, but it probably doesn’t matter. The Cardinals are better than the Rockies, no matter how you slice it, and backing Ty Blach doesn’t seem ideal. Blach has been more than hittable this season, and he has a 5.20 ERA through his last 117.2 innings. Regardless of who is on the mound for the Cardinals, I’m going to lay the juice with the home team as a fade of the Rockies. Give me the Cardinals.
