The Redbirds are as likely as the Astros to score lately, but the Cardinals have been hemorrhaging runs, giving up double digit tallies in 5 of their last 15.
Even the anemic Astros offense should be able to take the St. Louis pitching staff to school right now. St. Louis is last in the majors in ERA over the last 30 days; LaRussa keeps making moves, but no-one's getting the job done.
Desperate moves like the Jeff Weaver pickup aren't gonna change their course, and the Houston batters can't let their own wimpy performances give the Cardinals staff any confidence at all.
Can't let them get turned around.
