The Braves are coming off of a 13-inning victory over the Giants on Thursday, while the Cardinals split a doubleheader against the Royals on Wednesday.
2018 NL MVP fourth-place finisher Freddie Freeman will bat third Friday night and look to continue another fantastic campaign. He's missed just one game this season and is batting .316 with 12 home runs.
Mike Foltynewicz (0-3, 6.91 ERA) will be on the bump looking to the right the ship after an atrocious start to the season. The righty has allowed at least 4 runs in 4 of his first 5 starts.
Dexter Fowler has been a prototypical leadoff hitter this year, as his .413 OBP is good for seventh in the MLB. Speedster Harrison Bader has heated up in the last ten days, batting .474 since May 14.
Right-hander Miles Mikolas (4-4, 4.88 ERA) takes the hill for the Cardinals, looking to bounce back from his last start in which he gave up 7 earned runs in 1.1 innings against the Rangers. Other than that start, his longevity has been impressive, as he went at least 5 innings in each of his first 8 starts.
Tonight's matchup will feature two star-studded lineup taking on shaky pitching –– it should be a fun one if you like offense.
