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

The Braves will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Mike Foltynewicz in this game. Foltynewicz has a 10-6 record and a 3.94 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Cardinals will be Adam Wainwright. The right hander has a 5.00 ERA to go along with a 11-5 record this season.

Foltynewicz established a career high in victories Saturday by striking out a career-best 11 hitters with no walks in a win over Miami. He is 7-1 with a 3.58 ERA in 12 starts since the beginning of June – Atlanta winning 10 of those contests – with 74 strikeouts in 70 1/3 innings. Foltynewicz was hammered for seven runs in four innings of a loss to the Cardinals on May 5 in Atlanta.

Wainwright struggled early in the season but since has regained the form that has made him one of the National League’s premier pitchers. He has won 11 of his past 13 decisions, but gave up three runs in three innings of a no-decision Sunday against Cincinnati. The 35-year-old is 8-3 with a 3.38 ERA in 17 career games (12 starts) against Atlanta, which drafted the Georgia native in the first round of the 2000 draft.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cardinals listed as 136-moneyline favorites versus the Braves, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Dexter Fowler has returned to the St. Louis Cardinals lineup just in time, as the center fielder who helped the Chicago Cubs win the 2016 World Series has his new team surging toward the top of the National League Central division. The Cardinals open a three-game home series Friday against the Atlanta Braves sitting just one game behind the Cubs for the division lead after Fowler belted a grand slam in Thursday’s 8-6 victory over Kansas City in his fourth contest back from the disabled list.

Fowler drove in five runs in Thursday’s win – the sixth in a row for St. Louis – and is 6-for-13 with five extra-base hits, five RBIs, six walks and seven runs scored since recovering from a strained right forearm muscle. The Braves flirted with .500 in the days after the All-Star break, but after closing July with 11 losses in 14 games have opened August by going 3-5. Atlanta is batting .239 this month with a .295 on-base percentage, averaging only 3.5 runs per contest. Center fielder Ender Inciarte had his 13-game hitting streak snapped in Wednesday’s 3-2 loss to Philadelphia, as Atlanta scored two runs or fewer for the third game in a row.

In their last action, St. Louis was a 8-6 winner on the road against the Royals. Bettors on St. Louis at -142 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (14) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

Last time out for Atlanta, they were a 3-2 loser as they battled the Phillies on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Phillies at 145 were rewarded, while the 5 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
