Rhys Hoskins found something to correct in his swing while watching video in Chicago last week. He then went to Milwaukee and was 5-for-11 with 12 total bases (double, two home runs) over the weekend.
Now, he is back at Citizens Bank Park and – rain or no rain – should be able to re-flex his home muscles.
Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright is 1-3 with a 6.43 in his last four starts and the Phillies’ Nick Pivetta is back after a minor-league stint. Sounds like the balls might be flying around the wet ballpark all night, so we’ll go with some partial-game Overs as well as the whole game (10).
And did we mention the Cardinals are 6-16 since May 2 and had a major late-game meltdown against the Braves Sunday night (up 3-0 in ninth, lost 4-3 in 10 on a bases-loaded walk) that you might have missed.
