Cardinals Eye a Series Sweep Against the Angels Following an Offensive Explosion

The St. Louis Cardinals have seriously stepped up their game, turning from one of the least exciting scoring teams in the majors to absolute hit machines in their recent matchups in Anaheim. They’re on a hot streak with big wins on Monday (10-5) and Tuesday (7-6) against the Los Angeles Angels, and now, they’re gunning for a full sweep in Wednesday’s finale.


Team Vibes and Shoutouts

Alec Burleson: The Game Changer Alec Burleson, the designated hitter, totally rocked it in Tuesday’s game. He smashed a two-run homer and snagged a double. Post-game, he was all praises for the team vibe, saying, “Everybody looked more comfortable up there,” during a chat with Bally Sports Midwest. He highlighted how everyone’s got each other’s backs, especially on off days, which is a big win for team morale.

Pedro Pages Makes His Mark Rookie catcher Pedro Pages made Tuesday unforgettable with his first big-league hit—a three-run double that massively pumped up the scoreboard. Despite some hiccups with runners in scoring positions, the team managed to score seven runs, showcasing their grit and better game plans.

Managerial Insights

Cardinals’ skipper Oliver Marmol is feeling pretty upbeat about how the team is doing. He shared, “The offense is doing a really nice job, one through nine, everybody is contributing and feeling pretty good. So we need to keep it up.” It’s clear he’s proud of how everyone is pulling together.

Stars Who Stepped Up

Paul Goldschmidt Bounces Back First baseman Paul Goldschmidt has flipped his script after a rough patch, hitting 5-for-14 with three runs and three RBIs in this series. His upswing in form has been crucial for the team.

Brendan Donovan: Mr. Reliable Brendan Donovan has been super consistent, hitting 4-for-11 with four walks and scoring three times. His steady presence has definitely strengthened the team’s offense.

Pitching Dynamics for the Big Game

Lance Lynn’s Redemption Shot Lance Lynn, slated to start Wednesday’s game, is looking to make up for a tough recent start against the Brewers where he gave up 10 runs in under five innings. With a decent track record against the Angels (5-3, 4.50 ERA), he’s eyeing a strong comeback.

Griffin Canning’s Turnaround On the Angels’ side, Griffin Canning (1-4, 5.75 ERA) is also looking to keep up his improvement after a rocky start to the season. His last few games have been promising, allowing just two runs over nearly 12 innings. His strategy? Keeping it simple and focusing on nailing those strikes.

It’s been quite the turnaround for the Cardinals, and with the series finale on the horizon, all eyes are on whether they can pull off the clean sweep.
