Players to Watch:

Jean Segura has dominated opposing pitchers thus far this season, including each of the Cardinals’ three starting pitchers in this series. Against Martinez, Leake, and Garcia, Segura owns a .279, .333, and .346 batting average respectively in the past five years. Hopefully for the Diamondbacks, Segura can continue his production against St. Louis pitching.

On the other hand, the St. Louis youngsters will be fun to watch. Although the three of them don’t have enough at-bats against Arizona pitching to be of much importance, Diaz, Hazelbaker, and Piscotty, own a .372, .281, and .329 batting averages so far this season.
