St Louis Cardinals vs Tampa Bay Rays Predictions 6/9/2022

Ace Shane McClanahan will be the starter for the Rays for the 12th time this season in hopes of continuing a Cy Young-worthy campaign. He is 6-2 with an ERA of 2.10 while leading the league with 89 strikeouts across 64.1 innings.

St. Louis Cardinals vs Tampa Bay Rays. The Cardinals may have generally looked like the better team as of late, but they ran into some tough pitching contests in this series and with McClanahan on the mound for the Rays, it’s going to be a difficult match for the struggling Cardinals.

 

In addition, the strong Tampa Bay bullpen will back up their ace and St. Louis will likely have too much trouble scoring. Prediction: The Tampa Bay Rays will pick up the win in this game to a score of 3-1.
