Today’s matchup is between the St Louis Cardinals (14-14) and the Chicago Cubs (22-15). The Cardinals have won 3 of their last 5 games & the Cubs have won 4 of their last 5 games.

The Cardinals are starting Jack Flaherty (RHP) on the mound who is 2-0 on the season pitching a 1.93 ERA, 3.67 FIP, .223 wOBA, 85.3 MPH average exit velocity & a .80 WHIP in 18.2 innings pitched.

The Cubs are starting Yu Darvish (RHP), who is 6-1 with a 1.47 ERA, 2.01 FIP, .248 wOBA, 87.8 MPH average exit velocity & a 1 WHIP in 43 innings pitched.

The starting pitchers are pretty close to even so far this season as Flaherty's wOBA, WHIP, & Average exit velocity are impressive & All of Yu Darvish's stats are above average. That said the Cubs have the better hitting team and slightly better pitcher so I like the Cubs to win the game.
