Cardinals Vs. Braves Preview: Jake Westbrook Takes Mound With St. Louis Aiming For 3rd Straight Win

The Atlanta Braves are free-falling down the National League East standings, and the St. Louis Cardinals would like nothing more than the extend the suffering for another game or two. On Tuesday, St. Louis will try to give the Braves their ninth straight loss as Jake Westbrook opposes Atlanta's 22-year old righty Randall Delgado.

The Braves swept the Cards in a three-game series in St. Louis earlier this month, but St. Louis' emerging ace Lance Lynn was able to help give the Cardinals an 8-2 win in the series opener on Monday. Westbrook will attempt to give St. Louis its third straight victory. The 34-year old veteran enters at 4-3 with a 3.38 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.

The highly-touted Delgado is 2-5 this year with a 4.53 ERA and 1.45 WHIP.

Game Date & Time: Tuesday, May 28, 6:10 p.m. CT

Location: Turner Field, Atlanta, GA.
