The St Louis Cardinals and Washington Nationals enter play with identical 9-6 records on the year. St Louis has absolutely dominated the Nationals in recent games. St Louis has won seven straight and nine of their past ten meetings with the Nationals. This will be the first meeting of the season between these two clubs. The pitching matchup for Thursday will feature right hander Adam Wainwright on the hill for the Cardinals as he will oppose righty Taylor Jordan for the Nationals. In two starts against the Nationals last season Wainwright threw a total of 15 1/3rd innings and gave up just three earned runs and had a WHIP under 1.00. This will be Jordan’s first meeting of his career against the Cardinals. He was roughed up a bit in his last outing as the Nationals right hander surrendered five earned runs with ten hits and two walks over five innings in a loss at Atlanta. St Louis enters play taking two of three games against the red hot Milwaukee Brewers. They broke Milwaukee’s 9 game win streak during Monday’s win. Washington took two of three at the Miami Marlins. They return home after a 3-3 road trip.
