The St. Louis Cardinals begin a three-game series with the Arizona Diamonbacks on Tuesday, with rookie Joe Kelly fighting to keep his spot in the rotation.

The St. Louis Cardinals begin a three-game home set against the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday night and will send Joe Kelly to the mound.

Kelly will be looking to rebound from the worst start of his rookie season. Against San Francisco on Wednesday, he gave up nine hits and seven runs (four earned) in five innings. The Cardinals lost 15-0.

With Jaime Garcia slated to return from his left shoulder sprain as soon as Sunday, Kelly needs a strong performance if he hopes to stay in the rotation.

Arizona will send Ian Kennedy to the mound. First pitch is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET at Busch Stadium. It can be seen on Fox Sports Midwest.
