Freddy Peralta (12-8 W-L, 3.79 ERA) vs. Adam Wainwright (4-11 W-L, 7.95 ERA)


Freddy Peralta has been an instrumental member of the Milwaukee Brewers this season, posting a 12-8 record and an impressive 3.79 ERA. Further evidenced of his dominance can be seen by his 200 strikeouts in 156.2 innings pitched – making him an intimidating challenge to any batting lineup. Peralta relies heavily on his fastball as his go-to weapon to catch batters off guard and generate high strikeout rates; yet, it must be noted that Peralta has shown some weakness when facing teams within National League Central; therefore tonight could put this to the test.


Adam Wainwright has had a disappointing season, as evidenced by his 4-11 record and 7.95 ERA. His struggles have included control issues leading to 39 walks, home run issues with 20 allowed this year and an unprecedented 1.98 WHIP rate that leaves his strikeout ability severely limited (52/94 innings pitched). Given this form and Milwaukee’s potent lineup, Wainwright will need a performance well above average to give the Cardinals any fighting chance against Milwaukee.
