The St. Louis Cardinals have the best record in baseball but they have not hit left-handers well and after losing to Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox last night, they face another tonight in Jose Quintana. The Cardinals are batting just .231 vs. lefties, and much like facing Sale for the first time ever Tuesday, they are again unfamiliar with their foe here as Quintana has only faced them once back in 2012. Quintana has pitched better than his 3-7 record and 3.95 ERA as he has 76 strikeouts vs. 26 walks in 93.1 innings with only eight home runs allowed, leading to a 3.57 FIP and 1.5 WAR. He has allowed three runs or less in five straight starts. Meanwhile John Lackey is 6-4 with a 3.35 ERA for the Cardinals, but he has a 4.03 xFIP. The Cardinals are 7-19 in their last 26 interleague home games vs. left-handed starters.
Pick: White Sox +134
