Marlins Vs. Cardinals: Giancarlo Stanton Expected To Start On Saturday

As if the St. Louis Cardinals didn't already have enough on their plate in trying to slow down a red-hot Miami Marlins team that has won seven of their last nine games, star slugger Giancarlo Stanton is expected return to the starting lineup on Saturday. Stanton appeared for one pinch-hit at-bat on Friday (a strikeout), but he hasn't started since July 2 due to a loose body in his knee. His plan is to start on Saturday and to use that a a launching point for his participation in 2012 All-Star Weekend festivities.

Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse has the task of slowing down the Marlins' lineup, while Cardinals hitter will look to touch up Miami starter Carlos Zambrano.

Game Date & Time: Saturday, July 7, 3:10 p.m. CT

TV: Fox Sports Midwest
