Kyle Bradish (0-0, 2.63 ERA) vs. Lance Lynn (1-2, 4.17 ERA)

Kyle Bradish of the Baltimore Orioles enters this matchup boasting an impressive 2.63 ERA over 13.2 innings pitched. Even with only limited innings pitched under his belt so far, Bradish has displayed striking out batters at an alarming rate – 17 so far! Managing his walk rate under pressure against an opposing Cardinals lineup that capitalizes on any mistakes can be tough at times; with current form and low home run count suggesting otherwise; Bradish may well deliver an outstanding performance by staying composed under pressure.

Lance Lynn brings both experience and inconsistency to the St. Louis Cardinals mound with him; evidenced by a 4.17 ERA over 45.1 innings pitched this season. Lynn has shown some potential as evidenced by 43 Ks recorded, yet has surrendered hits and walks that contributed to an elevated WHIP (1.48) suggesting potential vulnerability against Orioles hitters.
