This season the Cardinals come in pretty much with the same team as last year. Their lineup features a host of big bats. From Carlos Beltran (32 HR, 97 RBI, .269 BA), Matt Holliday (27 HR, 102 RBI, .295) and Yadier Molina (22 HR, 76 RBI, .315 BA), to Allen Craig (22 HR, 92 RBI, .307 BA) and David Freese (20 HR, 79 RBI, .293), the Cardinals’ offense was fourth in batting average and 5th in total runs last season. They look to build on that success this year. As for the pitching staff, having a rotation that features Lance Lynn, Kyle Lohse, Adam Wainwright, and Chris Carpenter goes a long way to securing victories.
