Cardinals vs. Orioles Prediction
The St. Louis Cardinals have been among the biggest disappointments in baseball. While they were expected to be a contender, they have the second-worst record in the National League this season. Meanwhile, starter Adam Wainwright has been a shell of his former self, as his ERA is more than double what it was last season. Look for the Baltimore Orioles, who rank sixth in the league in runs scored, to take advantage as they win by at least two runs.
