The most recent game was a 5-0 win for St. Louis and they’ll look to get another win tonight. The Cardinals are 9-4 so far this season, and the 2-1 Adam Wainwright will get the start today.
The Reds have problems in nearly every aspect of baseball. Their pitching is pretty awful, but their batting is even worse. With a team batting average of .180, the Reds rank among the worst in Major League Baseball. Today, the 0-2 Nick Lodolo will take the mound, Lodolo has an ERA of 8.00.

Taking the mound for the Angels is Jose Suarez, who is 0-1 to start the season. He also has an ERA of 5.19, which makes this a tough game for Los Angeles. With the Orioles on a hot streak, we’ll take them to win again tonight.
Texas Rangers vs. Oakland Athletics – 4:07 PM ET
The 5-9 Texas Ranges are another team that is red hot after winning their last three games. Two of the three games were against the Oakland Athletics. Garrett Richards will get the start for the Rangers tonight in his first start of the season. With how poor the Athletics’ batting has been this year, it’s no surprise that Texas is -125.
The Oakland Athletics will send the 1-1 Cole Irvin out to the mound today. Irvin has pitched 16.2 innings this year allowing 18 hits and throwing 10 strikeouts. At the plate, the Athletics haven’t been much better with a team batting average of .210. Look for the Rangers to come away with another win tonight.
