    Going to ride the ultra-hot Jack Flaherty train here in Tuesday's series opener vs. Kansas City. Over his five starts since the All-Star Break, Flaherty has posted sensational numbers throwing a total of 31 1/3 innings while allowing just 26 total baserunners and 3 ER. Even more amazing is the fact that Flaherty's five game stretch with a 0.83 ERA and 0.86 WHIP has included starts against the L.A. Dodgers (#3), Chicago Cubs (#6), Houston (#4) & Pittsburgh (#10) who all rank in MLB's Top 10 OPS offenses against RH pitching. While Flaherty is blazing a trail to the staff ace status that St. Louis and many other baseball insiders felt he possessed, his counterpart tonight Glenn Sparkmann has been leaking water for quite some time. Over his last eight starts the righty has been abysmal with the exception of a stray complete game shutout of the White Sox. Even including that performance, Sparkmann's L8 starts result in this pitching line: 43 1/3 IP / 61 H / 39 ER / 15 BB & 29 K (less than 2-1 K:BB ratio) / 133 Total Bases Allowed (3.07 per inning) / 8.10 ERA and 1.75 WHIP. Seven of his game whips during this current nose dive are 1.59 or higher with six being 1.83 or above while none of his ERA's in those games is below 6.00. The Cardinals are in "sense of urgency" mode right now and they came alive over the weekend at home sweeping the Pirates beginning a 22 game schedule to end August that gives them the opportunity to catapult in the standings. Play here is on Flaherty to stifle the Kansas City offense which is 24th in MLB OPS rankings while the Cardinals bats do enough damage to win by 2+ runs. Selection: St. Louis -1.5 -1.43
