Cardinals Analysis

The only team in the NL Central with a losing record thus far is St. Louis. When the Cardinals depart Oakland, they hope that will be different. Sonny Gray, a recent addition to the team, will hopefully make his 2nd start in this game. After 5.0 shutout innings, his first appearance as a Cardinal came to an end. Gray was runner-up for the AL Cy Young award in 2023, so it’s expected that he’ll perform every 5th day. A bullpen that ranks 6th in WAR, 8th in FIP, and 12th in ERA sits behind Gray. The Cardinals will look to improve offensively after being shut out on Sunday. They rank 22nd in the league in scoring per game this season with 3.81.


Athletics Analysis

The Oakland Athletics have won 5 of their last 7 games and are currently 7-9 on the season. Oakland recently won 2 of the 3 games in their series victory over the Nationals. The Athletics defeated Texas and Detroit 2 games to one before that series. The pitching staff in Oakland has a 1.37 WHIP, a 3.85 ERA, and an opponent batting average of .262. The Oakland offense, which has a .208 batting average and a .280 on base percentage, has scored 47 runs. For the A’s, Shea Langeliers is hitting .200 with 4 home runs and 8 RBIs. Ross Stripling, who has pitched 18.0 innings this season and is 0-3 with a 5.50 ERA and 1.72 WHIP, is expected to start for Oakland.
