The Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at New Busch Stadium.

The Marlins will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Tom Koehler in this game. Koehler has a 1-3 record and a 7.42 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Cardinals will be Michael Wacha. The right hander has a 4.16 ERA to go along with a 5-3 record this season.

Koehler returned to Miami’s rotation for the first time since May 16 on Saturday and was lit up for seven runs on six hits and a pair of walks in 1 2/3 innings. The New York native did not complete six frames in any of his last five major-league appearances and has surrendered 11 home runs in 40 overall innings. Koehler started against St. Louis on May 10 and did not factor in the decision after allowing four runs and five hits in 5 1/3 frames.

Wacha dominated in his last two turns, recording a pair of wins while allowing a total of one run and nine hits in 12 innings. The Texas A&M product struck out a season-high nine over six frames against Washington on Saturday while issuing one walk. Wacha, who has surrendered a total of one home run in his last five turns, is 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA in two career starts against Miami.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cardinals listed as 148-moneyline favorites versus the Marlins, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The St. Louis Cardinals looked at their last two series before the All-Star break and saw a path to .500, but things aren’t breaking their way. The Cardinals will try to earn a split when they host the Miami Marlins on Thursday afternoon for the finale of their four-game series.

St. Louis earned series wins over Arizona and Washington before taking the first contest against the Marlins on Monday but fell off the pace by losing the last two. The Cardinals, who close the first half with a three-game home set against the New York Mets this weekend, are having some trouble keeping the Marlins in the park as they yielded four home runs in Wednesday’s 9-6 setback. Two of those blasts came from Giancarlo Stanton, who tuned up to defend his Home Run Derby crown on Monday by blasting his 22nd and 23rd shots of the campaign. Trying to keep Stanton and company in the yard on Thursday will be Michael Wacha, who opposes Miami’s Tom Koehler.

Last time out for St. Louis, they were a 9-6 loser as they battled the Marlins on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Marlins at 119 were rewarded, while the 15 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The Marlins were a 9-6 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Cardinals. That made winners of bettors who got Miami at 119 on the moneyline, while the total score (15) was good news for OVER bettors.
