On a very closed game held at the Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, the Saint Louis Cardinals wrap up a victory Wednesday night as they defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-4 at home in the last inning.
The Chicago Cubs took the leadership of the game as they were 4-1 on the third inning. This was giving an early victory to the home team but instead the Saint Louis Cardinals prove that they have a great team with pitcher Carlos Beltran and Jon Jay who were able to give the game a turn-around driving two runs each and with this, giving the victory to their team 5-4.
The Cardinals struggle 3-4 until the sixth inning and before pitcher Carlos Beltran showed what he is made of; he singled Matt Carpenter in the seventh, and then Jon Jay did his job against Michael Bowden and drove Yadier Molina for a tiebreak in the eight.
These great movements from Jay were consequences from the Cubs mistakes, residing in Carpenter and Nate Shierholtz.
“I’m just trying to keep it simple up there,” Jay said. “Trying to hit the ball hard, and I’ve been able to get some pitches over the plate that I’ve been able to drive.”
Baseball betting predictions were incorrect as the Chicago Cubs was favorite on the money line. They were coming from a 2 consecutive winning streak and were looking for the third game.
The Saint Louis Cardinals are hoping to maintain the momentum as they will have the day off on Thursday and will host the Colorado Rockies on Friday.
But the Cubs were not the only team to lose at home Wednesday night, the Cincinnati Reds failed against the Atlanta Braves 7-2. This is the first loss for Cincinnati at home; this was definitely not the best night for the Reds who were able to score only 2 runs through all the game.
Atlanta had their star tonight on Dan Uggla, with two home runs and scoring 3 times; Uggla gave a relief to the Atlanta team who was coming from a horrible loss from Tuesday night against Cincinnati.
Other contributors for this victory for the Braves were Jordan Schafer who had three hits and Andrelton Simmons with four hits respectively.
Odds for this game were setting the Cincinnati team as the favorite and the majority of the MLB wagers were placed in for them, but at the end the underdog was the winner.
The Atlanta Braves will face San Francisco on their next game Thursday while the Reds will have the day off on Thursday and will prepare to face Milwaukee on Friday.
