The St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers will be back at it Saturday night after a rain-delayed, extra-innings start to their three-game series. Jake Westbrook takes the mound for the Red Birds as they look to rebound from a 5-4 loss that occurred after Ryan Braun homered for the Brewers in the 13th inning.
Westbrook is 13-10 on the season with a 3.93 ERA, but has struggled recently. The Cardinals right-hander has allowed 14 runs in his last 15 innings of work. Westbrook's last start did show signs of a bounce back, as he gave up only two runs and struck out six in five and one-thirds innings of work.
The Brewers send rookie Mike Fiers to the hill as Milwaukee looks to continue a late playoff push against their Central Division rivals. Milwaukee currently sits six games back of the Cardinals for the second wild card spot in National League.
First pitch is set for 7:15 p.m. CT and will be televised on Fox Sports Midwest and Fox Sports Wisconsin.
