The National League Central is filled with talented teams including two that will compete on Monday night from Miller Park in Milwaukee. The St. Louis Cardinals and the Milwaukee Brewers will play with Lance Lynn getting the start for the visitors and Matt Garza getting the ball for the home team.
Lynn has been one of the best pitchers in the National League over the course of the past 2 seasons. He has a record of 33-17 during that time and has been a nice surprise for the team. Thus far this season, Lynn has been luckier than good, earning a 2-0 record while allowing 8 earned runs on 16 hits with 11 strikeouts in 11 innings. He has an ERA of 6.55 this season and will look to bring that down against the team that has an average of .274 against him. Ryan Braun has the only home run of any current Brewer against Lynn.
Garza will be making his 3rd start of the season after going 0-1 in his first 2. He has pitched better than Lynn has this season, but run support hasn’t been there. He has allowed just 4 earned runs in 14 innings with 10 hits allowed and 11 strikeouts. In his career against the current Cardinals, Garza has allowed 32 hits in 99 at-bats. He has kept the ball in the park, but has struggled to retire 2 of the best in St. Louis, Jhonny Peralta (11-for-25) and Matt Holliday (6-for-18).
