PITCHING MATCHUP: Cardinals RH Jack Flaherty (5-6, 3.93 ERA) vs. Dodgers RH Dustin May (0-1, 4.76)

Flaherty allowed one hit - a single in the sixth inning - and two walks with nine strikeouts in seven innings of an 8-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Thursday that marked St. Louis' last victory. The 23-year-old, who grew up in Burbank, Calif. and went to high school in Los Angeles, notched his first win since May 14 after going 0-3 with a 4.05 ERA in his 12 previous turns. Joc Pederson is 3-for-9 with two solo home runs against Flaherty, who is 1-1 with a 1.50 ERA in three starts versus the Dodgers after posting a 7-2 victory on April 10 in which he yielded one run and three hits while striking out eight batters in six frames.

May allowed four runs - three earned - and nine hits with three strikeouts on 97 pitches over 5 2/3 innings of a 5-2 loss to San Diego on Friday. "He's got a good arm, he's got the stuff for it," Los Angeles' Cody Bellinger told reporters regarding the 21-year-old Texan. "The results might not have been what he wanted, but he's definitely got a bright future." May has acquired the nickname "Gingergaard'' because his long hair resembles that of the New York Mets' Noah Syndergaard, who also stands 6-6.

The Cardinals have scored more than 4 runs in only two of their last ten.

We were though that Flaherty could be in for a bad outing.  Had he been coming off a no-win situation (especially two starts without a win) we would focus more on the UNDER here.
