Atlanta Braves at Saint Louis Cardinals 5/25/19 – MLB Pick

The Braves are one of those teams that had some lows early on this year, but now they have bounced back and have started to play some consistent baseball and that is a good thing for the fans in Atlanta. Not to mention the Braves pitching seems to have finally gotten on the right path and are starting to look like they would be able to take down some of the opponents on the year that are stronger teams. With the Cardinals, the team really has been all over the place. At one point this year the Cardinals were in the NL Central lead, but now have started to fade back to a team that is mediocre and just a game over the five hundred mark, which could hurt the Cards chances of being seen as a serious threat later on this year.

The Braves are putting Soroka on the mound in this game and he has been one of those pitchers that is lights out amazing. What else will help the Braves out in this game is the fact that Hudson has allowed a lot of hits on the year and has been consistently getting roughed up once the batters do start to get to him he has trouble regaining his composure on the mound. Look for Soroka, though, to be the true star of this game as he is able to shut down the Cardinals offense in this game rather easily. I look for the Atlanta Braves to win. Final Score Prediction, Atlanta Braves win 6-2.
