Up Next: Home Opener in St. Louis!
Our Redbirds get back to St. Louis tonight (yippee!) and will get ready for a quick turnaround for their home opener tomorrow with the Brewers.
Ahead of the 3:15 CST first pitch, there will certainly be quite the celebration, headlined by Lou Brock delivering the ceremonial first pitch. What I would give to be there for that…
Wacha will be looking to get things on track after a rough first outing in Pittsburgh. He’s had middling results against Milwaukee in his career.
Over 15 1/3 innings against the Brewers, Wacha has allowed 10 earned runs on 21 hits, although he does has a 2-0 record in three starts.
The Cardinals took a big step forward from Pittsburgh to Atlanta. Look for them to clean things up in terms of starting pitching and defense over their next six games, and to have things clicking going into the first of 19 contests against the Cubbies this year.
