MLB Picks: July 12

By Adam Ortega

We head out to St. Louis as the Cardinals host the Dodgers for some Tuesday night action. In this matchup, we have Mitch White pitching for the Dodgers and Matthew Liberatore on the bump for the Cardinals. 

At 27 years old, White for the Dodgers comes into this matchup with an ERA 3.38 on the season and a record of 1-1. Presently, his WHIP sits at 1.15. White will be dealing the fastball, slider, and curveball. The 22 year old Liberatore for the Cardinals comes into this matchup with an ERA of 4.74 and a record of 2-1. His WHIP is at 1.74. For Liberatore, he brings a variety of pitches that include the fastball, slider, curveball, and changeup.

This matchup is one in which we have two pitchers very early into their careers at the Major League level. As we break down this matchup, we have to look at which offense will put more pressure on each of these pitchers and the opposing bullpen. Based on the statistics and numbers, the Dodgers are the team that should be able to apply enough pressure to get the job done.

When you think of the St. Louis Cardinals offense, one man comes to mind, Paul Goldschmidt. Goldy comes into this game as one of the most consistent players, especially in recent years. In 2022, his numbers are staggering. His batting average sits at .340, to go along with 19 home runs, and 65 RBI's. If he's not hitting home runs, he's busy finding a way to bring runs in.

The Dodgers bring an offense that always has the potential to put up big numbers. One of those players that we will spotlight is Mookie Betts. He is currently batting an average of .272, with 20 home runs, and 46 RBI's. Not only can he provide offense, but what he does in right field can only be described as outstanding. Mookie Betts alone is worth the price of admission. Ultimately, Mookie Betts, along with the rest of his teammates who bring more firepower, will be poised to get Liberatore out of this game early. 

At the end of the day, this matchup only leads us to one conclusion, back the Dodgers in this battle on the diamond to win by a score of 5-4.
