Cardinals at White Sox Prediction 7/10/18

We don't have a lot to go on here as far as historical Pitcher vs. Hitter data as neither of today's starters has faced any of the projected starting line-up's hitters. What we do know is that the Cards Miles Mikolas is having the best season of his four-year MLB career with an excellent 70.6 quality start percentage overall and that improves to 80% in his night starts. We also know that Dylan Covey started the season out well enough. He didn’t rack up the innings, but he did hold the opposition to two or fewer runs in five of his first seven starts, but he’s been atrocious since then getting lit up for 19 runs (18 earned) over 10 innings. St. Louis is only 4-3 on their current road trip, but the competition was more difficult and should be able to get by the lowly Sox tonight.
