Starting pitcher Chi Chi Gonzalez makes his season debut for the Milwaukee Brewers in the second game of their four-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Cardinals are -141 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. The St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers were as even as can be entering last night's series opener. They had split their first eight head-to-head meetings and were deadlocked atop the NL Central standings with identical 38-30 records. Milwaukee took a 5-4 season series lead with last night's 2-0 shutout win in the opener. St. Louis counters with Jack Flaherty (0-0, 6.00), who has a ways to go before he is in midseason form, as he was limited to just three innings and 60 pitches in his first start against Pittsburgh.
