The Cardinals are coming off a 6-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on the road Sunday. St. Louis lost that three-game series, 2-1. St. Louis will have some short-term issues on the roster to deal with, as some of its players will not be able to join the team for its trip north of the border. All-Stars Nolan Arenado and Paul Goldschmidt will not be playing in Toronto as both are unvaccinated against COVID-19. Taking the mound for the Cardinals in this upcoming contest will be Andre Pallante, who enters the game with a 3-4 record and a 3.34 ERA along with a 1.46 WHIP. In his last start, Pallante allowed 3 earned runs on 6 hits in a 7-3 home win to the Reds on July 15 at home. The Cardinals are 2-0 in his last couple of starts, in which he allowed 6 earned runs on 15 hits.
