On Monday, June 5, 2023, at 8:05 PM ET, the St. Louis Cardinals will play the Texas Rangers in MLB action at Globe Life Field, TX. The Pirates swept St. Louis in the Steel City, losing for the fifth time in six games after dropping the Sunday finale. The Cardinals were 25-35 on the year and seven games behind the Brewers and Pirates in the first place of the NL Central standings as of late Sunday afternoon. On Sunday afternoon, St. Louis had five hits in the contest, including two from Tommy Edman and Luken Baker. Andrew Knizner, who led the Redbirds’ offense with a solo home run in the loss—his fifth of the season—led the team’s offense.

In the middle game of their three-game series on Saturday, Texas overpowered Seattle, winning for the second time in a row and eight times in the previous 10 games. The Rangers lead the Astros by 2.5 games for first place in the AL West with a record of 37-20 as of Sunday. On Saturday, Texas banged out 19 hits, with Marcus Semien leading the way with four runs and three RBI. Nathaniel Lowe and Corey Seager both contributed three runs and an RBI. In the game, home runs were hit by Leody Taveras, Mitch Garver, Semien (his ninth), and Lowe (his sixth). Andrew Heaney did not factor into the decision after throwing three innings and allowing three runs on six hits, four walks, and five strikeouts. Josh Sborz (2-2) won by striking out two hitters while allowing no hits or walks.

Martin Perez will make the Rangers’ 12th start of the season in this contest. He has a 6-1 record, a 4.43 ERA, a 1.541 WHIP, 20 walks, and 44 strikeouts in 61 innings of work this season. The choice was unaffected by Perez’s recent start, which came on the road on Tuesday against the Tigers. He pitched 4.2 innings and was lost 10-6 by the Rangers after giving up six runs on seven hits, four walks, and three strikeouts. In his previous three starts, Perez is 2-0 with a 4.82 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, 6 walks, and 13 strikeouts in 18.2 innings pitched. Perez started the third game of his career against the Cardinals. He has a 1-0 record, a 4.38 ERA, a 1.378 WHIP, four walks, and three strikeouts in 12.1 innings pitched against them. Perez is 8-5 with a 2.70 ERA, 1.303 WHIP, 42 walks, and 114 Ks across 116.2 innings of work in 20 career starts at Globe Life Field.

  • The Texas Rangers are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games at home.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Texas’ last 5 games at home against St. Louis.
  • Texas is 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the National League.

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Texas Rangers The MLB pick for this game is the Texas Rangers. Although it seemed like St. Louis was turning the turnaround in the first few days of May, the city has recently been experiencing problems. One must really doubt whether John Mozeliak will be willing to deal at the deadline given that the Cardinals are 10 games out of.500. Wainwright struggled in his limited action this season, producing just over five innings per start and compiling an ERA above six. 

Texas is a dangerous team because, as they demonstrated in their Friday opener against the Mariners, they can win slugfests and games with few goals. The Rangers’ +143 run differential heading into Sunday shows that the offense can make up for any pitching errors. Perez pitched under pressure at times this season, allowing 74 hits across his 61 innings of work. Because Texas wins at home, give them the advantage. The odds favor the Texas Rangers, who will triumph 8-3.
