The St. Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at AT&T Park.

Michael Wacha will be the starting pitcher for the Cardinals on this day. Right hander Wacha is 9-7 this season with a 4.33 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Madison Bumgarner who starts for the Giants. Left hander Bumgarner is 3-6 with a 2.85 ERA so far this season.

Wacha has been pounded while losing three straight starts and has a dreadful 10.22 ERA during the stretch. The 26-year-old has been largely ineffective on the road by going 2-4 with a 5.57 ERA in 10 starts. Wacha received a no-decision against the Giants on May 19 when he allowed four hits over six scoreless innings and 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA in five regular-season starts against San Francisco.

Bumgarner lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks in his last turn when he gave up two runs (both on homers) and five hits over seven innings. The 28-year-old has allowed two or fewer runs in six of his past seven outings but only has three wins to show for it. Bumgarner will be facing the Cardinals for the first time since the 2014 postseason and possesses a 3-4 record and 3.97 ERA in seven regular-season outings against St. Louis.

Oddsmakers currently have the Giants listed as 110-moneyline favorites versus the Cardinals, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.

The St. Louis Cardinals are fading just as the most important month in baseball arrives as they open a four-game road series against the San Francisco Giants. St. Louis has dropped seven of its last 10 games to fall six games behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the National League Central and 5 1/2 contests behind the Colorado Rockies for the second wild-card spot.

Giants ace Madison Bumgarner will look to continue the Cardinals’ problems but San Francisco is just 3-10 in the left-hander’s starts this season. San Francisco dropped a 5-0 decision to the San Diego Padres on Wednesday for its eighth loss in the past 11 games to clinch a losing season (53-82) but hopes to get All-Star catcher Buster Posey (left thumb) back after a three-game absence. Tommy Pham belted two homers for the sixth time in his career on Wednesday but the Cardinals suffered a 6-5 loss against the Milwaukee Brewers. Randal Grichuk went deep against the Brewers but is just 3-for-26 over the last eight games.

Last time out for San Francisco, they were a 5-0 loser as they battled the Padres on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Padres at -148 were rewarded, while the 5 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Last time out for St. Louis, they were a 6-5 loser as they battled the Brewers on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Brewers at 110 were rewarded, while the 11 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
