Cardinals Vs. Phillies Preview: St. Louis Looks To Take Rubber Match

After facing Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee in back-to-back games over the weekend, the St. Louis Cardinals will see a welcome face on Sunday: Vance Worley. Of course, Worley, the Philadelphia Phillies starter, is no slouch himself, but he's certainly no Halladay or Lee.

The Cardinals will enter Sunday's game vs. Worley looking to take the series in Philadelphia. They'll counter with Lance Lynn, who will be following two stellar starts by Cardinals starters Kyle Lohse and Jake Westbrook. Lynn, despite putting up career numbers in the first half of the season, has been steady since the All-Star Break, putting up a 3.90 ERA in five starts despite a 1.50 WHIP.

Game date/time: Sunday, August 12, 12:35 p.m. CT

Location: Citizen's Bank Park, Philadelphia, Penn.

TV: FSN Midwest
