Despite a disappointing season so far, the Cardinals entered this matchup with confidence following their stunning win on Tuesday. Their bats blazed brightly, scoring 10 runs for an easy four-run victory – Nolan Gorman particularly made headlines for his outstanding performance with two hits, two runs scored, and three RBIs including two homers! Such offensive performance marked a welcome change for a team that has averaged 4.53 runs per game while giving up 5.06 on average through their pitching staff.
Dakota Hudson took to the mound for the Cardinals and entered this game with an impressive 5-1 record and 4.02 ERA – making him a trusted presence who needed to maintain their momentum moving into their next matchup.
Spencer Strider’s Bounce-Back Potential and the Atlanta Braves’ Offensive Dominance
Can Strider Rebound? Spencer Strider took to the mound with an impressive 16-4 record and an ERA of 3.54 for the Braves, and gave up four hits and four runs against the Los Angeles Dodgers on his last start; in his three previous starts however, he allowed only one total run during that stretch. Meanwhile, their offensive prowess has led them to average 5.8 runs per game while maintaining a 4.08 staff ERA. Their offense ranks first among all major league clubs as evidence of their ability to score. Strider could help put the Braves on an advantageous footing early, giving them the ability to use their powerful offense to secure victory.

St. Louis Cardinals
As the St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves continue their three-game series, each team brings its own set of strengths and areas for improvement into game two of this matchup. While St. Louis may have struggled this season, its bats found some life during game one against Atlanta; and they will hope to carry that momentum into game two against them.
On the other side of things are the Braves, currently sitting comfortably atop of the National League East with an arsenal of offensive talent led by players such as Ronald Acuna Jr. and Matt Olson. Even after suffering their latest setback, they remain formidable competitors.
Atlanta Braves Seek Redemption and Home Dominance Against St. Louis Cardinals
While the Cardinals may have won Game 1, many factors favoring Atlanta in this matchup are in their favor. Of particular note is their incredible run of success against NL Central opponents at home since home losses, winning 15 straight such matches as they seek redemption before their home crowd. With all this support from their home fan base and previous history on their side, it is clear that Atlanta can regain its winning form this time around.
Spencer Strider has had an outstanding season and provided the Braves with the league-leading offense, providing them with a solid platform from which they may secure victory in this series. If Strider can return to his pre-Dodgers form while keeping Cardinals bats in check, the Braves should have an excellent chance at earning much-needed victories against them.
