Cardinals Vs. Brewers Preview: Wainwright Takes The Hill On Wednesday

The St. Louis Cardinals have lost four of five games since returning from the All-Star Break, but they can take the series from the Milwaukee Brewers with a win today at Miller Park. The Cardinals will also be looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss on Tuesday night that saw them fail to even tie the game in the ninth inning after getting the winning run in scoring position with no outs.

On the hill for the Cardinals will be Adam Wainwright, whose second half got off to a so-so start in Cincinnati over the weekend. In that start on July 13, Wainwright pitched 6.1 innings, but gave up four earned runs on five hits. He'll be opposed by Brewers rookie Tyler Thornburg, who has given up six earned runs in 7.1 innings for Milwaukee this season.

Game date/time: Thursday, July 18, 1:10 p.m. CT

Location: Miller Park, Milwaukee, Wisc.

TV: FSN Midwest
