The Cubs are flying into St. Louis 10–3 and in first place in the National League Central.
They swept Pittsburgh in three and took three out of four against Kansas City.
At 28, lefty Alec Mills is the youngest member of the starting rotation.
This will be his third start. He beat Cincinnati with six innings of two-run ball in his first and defeated Kansas City with seven shutout innings in the second.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals went eight days without playing after a batch of players tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
That puts them in a unique situation with the NL Central leaders coming to town.
The season was short enough to begin with but long layoffs for teams that do experience outbreaks will only make matters more pressing.
The Birds had lost three in a row when the positive tests hit and can’t afford for things to re-start too sluggishly.
That said, this team’s mentality will be about the long-term. Get healthy, build up some momentum and sneak into the playoffs.
No one will really want to see the Cardinals in an early round, if they are playing like they are ultimately capable.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction: pitchers still ahead of the bats.
Mills has been tough in part because he gives hitters a lot of different looks. He should pitch well again, especially against a lineup that will be defrosting again.
But Wainwright against the Cubs is a sure thing to compete. He’ll keep the Cardinals in a low-scoring game.
