St. Louis Cardinals
It is time for another sweep as the St. Louis Cardinals enter this matchup with brooms already in their dugout ready to go as they recently used them to take care of the Cincinnati Reds. It was an amazing series which showcased both their powerful lineup and shutout pitching relief.
On the mound for the Cardinals will be Adam Wainwright who rebounded from a rough debut to throw seven strong innings against the Brewers last time out. His next outing will be the 36-year-old’s 35th career start against the rival Cubs.
The Chicago Cubs are slowly but surely getting back into the mix of things in the NL as a slow start to the season has hit them harder than they think. Chicago will be looking to play at least one game this series as they have a couple of days off due to the weather.
On the mound for the Cubs will be Tyler Chatwood who was roughed up by the Pirates in his Wrigley Field debut, giving up five runs over five innings. He said he pitched well but couldn’t get the weak contact he wanted. He was scheduled to go Sunday but that game was postponed because of rain.
