St. Louis Cardinals starter Lance Lynn (10-3, 3.23 ERA) has been amazing in 2012, but he hasn't pitched as well during the month of June. In his previous start against the Kansas City Royals, Lynn allowed six earned runs and nine hits over 5.1 innings, which added to a month in which he has posted a 4.76 ERA over 28.1 innings. On Saturday afternoon he will start opposite Pirates hurler Jeff Karstens (0-2, 6.35 ERA) who has only made one start this month and gave up 11 hits and six earned runs against the Philadelphia Phillies on June 24.
