Pittsburgh Pirates vs St Louis Cardinals Game 1 Predictions 6/14/2022

Juan Yepez (run, two RBI) had 3 hits for St. Louis on Sunday, while Tommy Edman (run), Nolan Gorman (run), and Brendan Donovan (run) each had two.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs St. Louis Cardinals. The MLB pick for this game is the St. Louis Cardinals. With this being the opening game of a doubleheader, both pitching staff will be pushed to their limits.


Brubaker battled all season, and the Pirates aren’t the type of squad to compensate for a pitcher’s errors. Liberatore did not pitch well in his three major league starts, but the Cardinals are playing well of late, which, along with Milwaukee’s troubles, propelled them to the top of the NL Central standings.


Add in Brubaker’s poor splits versus the Redbirds and the fact that he’ll be pitching at Busch Stadium to further advantage the home club.


St. Louis cruised to victory in this one, putting them in position for a sweep on Tuesday night. The St. Louis Cardinals will win to a predicted score of 6-5.
