My Prediction: The Phillies are looking for a clean 3-game sweep of the struggling Cardinals in St Louis tonight. The Cards have now lost 9 of 11 and are 0-2 without Albert Pujols. The Phillies have held St. Louis to only 2 runs in the first two games. Philadelphia goes with Roy Oswalt tonight against the Cards Chris Carpenter. Oswalt has been hit around recently, going 1-2 with a 5.12 ERA in his last 3 starts. Carpenter’s career ERA against the Phillies is 5.69 in 49 innings pitched. I like Oswalt to get back on track for the Phillies and for Carpenter to continue his struggles.
