The Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at New Busch Stadium.

The Pirates will give the ball to starter Jameson Taillon in this one. Right hander Taillon is 3-2 this season with a 3.38 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Adam Wainwright who starts for the Cardinals. Right hander Wainwright is 7-5 with a 5.75 ERA so far this season.

Taillon answered a brilliant performance with a mediocre one on Sunday, allowing four runs on eight hits in five innings of a 7-1 setback to the Chicago Cubs. “I think they’re looking for fastballs early, and then some breaking balls didn’t work his way at all,” manager Clint Hurdle said of the 25-year-old. Taillon permitted two runs in five innings of a no-decision versus St. Louis on Sept. 7 last season.

Wainwright surrendered nine runs on seven hits for the second time in three starts on Saturday, lasting a career-low 1 2/3 innings in a 15-7 rout at Baltimore. The 35-year-old surrendered three homers in that contest after being taken deep just five times in his previous 13 games. A trip back to Busch Stadium could be what the doctor ordered for Wainwright, who owns a 5-1 mark with a 2.88 ERA in seven home starts this season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cardinals listed as -118 moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Busch Stadium has been a house of horrors for the Pittsburgh Pirates, who will look to end a seven-game losing skid in the Gateway City on Friday when they open a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Pittsburgh dropped three consecutive 2-1 decisions in St. Louis when the National League Central rivals met in April.

Pittsburgh sustained consecutive losses to split its four-game series at Milwaukee to fall to 3-5 on the heels of a season-high four-game winning streak. Gregory Polanco highlighted his fourth multi-hit performance in six games with a solo homer in Thursday’s 4-2 loss to the Brewers, but is just 3-for-14 in his career against Friday starter Adam Wainwright. St. Louis rookie Paul DeJong also went deep in Thursday’s 5-1 loss to Philadelphia, extending his team’s home run streak to 11 straight games – with 20 coming since last Friday. DeJong went 7-for-23 on the road trip and will get his first look at Friday starter Jameson Taillon.

In their last action, St. Louis was a 5-1 loser on the road against the Phillies. Bettors on Philadelphia at 125 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (6) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

The Pirates were a 4-2 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Brewers. That made winners of bettors who got Milwaukee at -125 on the moneyline, while the total score (6) was good news for UNDER bettors.
