San Francisco Giants (3-6) vs. St. Louis Cardinals (7-2) - 10:15PM Est.

Wait a minute. Aren’t the Cardinals supposed to suck? How in the hell are they 7-2 and ahead of both the Brewers and Cubs in the NL Central? If the Redbirds win again tonight, they’ll have started a season 8-2 for the first time since 1981, which was before their starter tonight was even alive. Adam Wainwright was great in his first start of the season, going 8 innings and allowing only 2 runs against the Nationals, and he’s one of the reasons why St. Louis is off to such a hot start. After their first 9 games, the Cardinals starting rotation has an ERA of 1.99. (So it’s either the pitching or Tony LaRussa getting drunk and calling Albert Pujols fat, bald, and ugly before each game that’s responsible for this start.) Wainwright has never started against, but he’s 1-0 with a 4.91 ERA against them in two appearances out of the bullpen. On the other side of the diamond we have the Giants, who are just about eliminated from the NL West division crown thanks to their 3-6 start. Well, that and they aren’t very good. Kevin Correia gets the start for the Giants, and he gave up 4 runs in 6 innings against the Brewers in his first start, and picked up the loss. On the bright side, at least it’s not Barry Zito starting.
