Cardinals Vs. Brewers Preview: Kyle Lohse Looks To Continue Stellar Season

The St. Louis Cardinals may not be able to catch the torrid Cincinnati Reds in the N.L. Central, but the Redbirds are right in the thick of the N.L. Wild Card race and are going for a crucial weekend sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday. St. Louis enters Sunday 2.5 games behind the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Atlanta Braves, which are tied for the top two Wild Card slots.

The Cardinals will be sending Kyle Lohse to the hill on Sunday. Lohse has been having a career year in 2012, and only in his last start had a streak of 10 straight quality starts broken. Even in that last start he gave up five runs in six innings in Coors Field vs. the Colorado Rockies, hardly some terrible sin. Lohse hasn't faced the Brewers since late April, when he gave up three earned runs in six innings.

Milwaukee will counter with spot starter Marco Estrada, who has posted a 4.34 ERA but a 1.13 WHIP on the season. Estrada has also struck out 81 batters in 74 innings while only walking 15. Estrada has pitched 9.1 innings vs. the Cardinals in 2012 across three appearances (one of which was a start), giving up six earned runs.

Game date/time: Sunday, August 5, 7:05 p.m. CT

Location: Busch Stadium, St. Louis, Mo.

TV: ESPN

Brewers Vs. Cardinals: St. Louis Tries To Stay Hot At Home On Saturday

The St. Louis Cardinals earned an impressive 9-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers in the opener of their three-game series on Friday night, and now they can extend their home winning streak to five games with another victory on Saturday. The Cardinals own a 30-21 at Busch Stadium in 2012, and that is bolstered by a recent stretch in which they have won seven of their last eight at home.

On Saturday, St. Louis sends Adam Wainwright (8-10, 4.24 ERA) to the mound, while the Brewers will counter with 26-year-old hurler Mark Rogers (0-0, 3.18 ERA), who will be making his second start of the season.

Brewers Vs. Cardinals Final Score: St. Louis Downs Milwaukee, 9-3

The Cardinals got off to a strong start in their weekend series opener against the Brewers on Friday night, defeating Milwaukee 9-3.

Both starting pitchers gave up a lot of hits in just more than five innings of work. For the Red Birds, Joe Kelly gave up three runs (all of them earned) on 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings pitched. Brewers lefty Randy Wolf gave up five earned runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings on the hill.

Wolf actually got the scoring started in this game by hitting a two-run single in the second inning. Norichika Aoki followed that up with an RBI single to give the Brewers an early 3-0 lead.

It was all Cardinals after that. David Freese, Daniel Descalso and Kelly all plated runs for St. Louis in the fourth to give the Cardinals a 4-3 advantage. Then it was Yadier Molina and Rafael Furcal getting in on the party in the sixth inning.

The Cardinals capped everything off with three more runs in the eighth inning for good measure.
