The St. Louis Cardinals are still adjusting to the loss of slugger Lance Berkman (torn meniscus), but the season continues to roll on and they are gearing up for the start of a four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies. In the first game on Thursday, Jake Westbrook (4-3, 2.41 ERA) takes the mound against Joe Blanton (4-4, 3.74 ERA) in the first of a seven-game road trip for Philly.
