Diamondbacks Vs. Cardinals Preview: St. Louis Strives To Break Ian Kennedy's Dominance At Home

After taking down the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night, the St. Louis Cardinals can claim a series victory in Arizona with another win on Tuesday night. Jake Westbrook (3-2, 2.12 ERA) will take the mound for the Cards, while Ian Kennedy will start for the D'Backs. Kennedy has an odd streak he's trying to keep alive in the game as well. Kennedy is 10-0 with a 2.27 ERA in 14 starts at home since losing to the Marlins back on on May 31 (via STATS LLC), so the Cardinals will have their work cut for them at the plate on Tuesday night.

Here is a great breakdown of how the Cardinals hitter compare to their individual statistical projections at this point in the season to check out at Viva El Birdos.

Game Time: 8:40 p.m. CDT

Location: Chase Field, Phoenix, AZ
