The St. Louis Cardinals (55-44) invade Citi Field tonight in the 1st of a 3 game series. The Redbirds come in having won 8 of 11 since the All Star Game break while the Mets return to their "Friendly Confines" fresh off a 2-11 road trip.
Tony LaRussa and his NL Central leading club have thus far won 13 of 19 games against Eastern division foes while the Mets(50-49) are 7-9 versus the NL Central.
Adam Wainwright (15-4 , 1.94) pitching on his normal rest has bumped sensational rookie Jaime Garcia to tomorrow and will take the ball against the Mets Jon Niese (6-4, 3.54) as the New Yorkers attempt to get off to a good start in this all important (season defining?) stretch of games against the Cards, Phils, and Braves.
LETS GO METS !!!
