The Arizona Diamondbacks and the St. Louis Cardinals will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at New Busch Stadium.

The Diamondbacks will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Zack Greinke in this game. Greinke has a 12-4 record and a 2.92 ERA this season.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Mike Leake who starts for the Cardinals. Right hander Leake is 7-8 with a 3.20 ERA so far this season.

Greinke has registered four victories over his last five starts, pitching to a 2.52 ERA over that span. The 33-year-old worked eight innings Monday against Atlanta, allowing two runs and five hits with six strikeouts. Greinke is 11-4 with a 3.30 ERA in 17 career games (15 starts) against the Cardinals, including a pair of wins last season.

Leake has had a wild ride in four starts this month, posting a 4.58 ERA despite tossing seven scoreless innings last time out. The 29-year-old was knocked out in the fourth frame of his first outing this month and lasted just two innings on July 19 against the New York Mets, but he bounced back to hold Colorado to four hits over seven scoreless frames on Monday. Leake is 5-2 with a 4.92 ERA in 10 career starts versus Arizona.

Oddsmakers currently have the Diamondbacks listed as 113-moneyline favorites versus the Cardinals, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

Dominant pitching has highlighted the first two contests of the four-game series between the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks and St. Louis Cardinals, as each team has notched a shutout victory. Diamondbacks ace Zack Greinke and St. Louis’ Mike Leake hope to continue that trend when they square off on Saturday.

St. Louis held on for a 1-0 win Friday, a day after having its three-game winning streak snapped with a 4-0 defeat. The Cardinals might need more run support Saturday, as closer Trevor Rosenthal likely will be unavailable after recording his first career two-inning save on Friday. Arizona also taxed its bullpen as starter Robbie Ray was carted off the field in the second inning after being hit in the back of the head by a line drive off the bat of Luke Voit. Ray was alert when taken to the hospital for testing, and three relievers kept the Diamondbacks in the game.

In their last action, St. Louis was a 1-0 winner on the road against the Diamondbacks. Bettors on St. Louis at -130 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (1) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

The Diamondbacks were a 1-0 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Cardinals. That made winners of bettors who got St. Louis at -130 on the moneyline, while the total score (1) was good news for UNDER bettors.
