After a frustrating loss on Thursday night, the St. Louis Cardinals look to get even as they host the Philadelphia Phillies at Busch Stadium on Friday. The Phillies took the first game of the series, 10-9, but the Cardinals should be confident with Kyle Lohse taking the mound.
Over nine starts this year, Lohse has a 2.91 ERA with 36 strikeouts and just nine walks over 55.2 innings. The Cardinals are 7-2 in games that he's started this season, so there's reason to be hopeful that St. Louis will avoid a second straight loss.
The Phillies have lefty Cliff Lee, who is still winless this year somehow, taking the mound. He's 0-2 this year despite having a 2.66 ERA with 40 strikeouts and five walks over his first six starts of the year.
