Cubs Vs. Cardinals Lineups: St. Louis Loads Up Lefties Against Jeff Samardzija

The St. Louis Cardinals are loading up left-handed hitters for Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs, and it's probably a pretty good idea. Chicago starter Jeff Samardzija has held right-handed hitters to a .244/.296/.325 line for the 2012 season, but lefties have roughed him up to the tune of a much more impressive .256/.333/.489 line.
