Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Saturday when the Pittsburgh Pirates and the St. Louis Cardinals meet at Busch Stadium.

Chad Kuhl will be the starting pitcher for the Pirates on this day. Right hander Kuhl is 5-4 this season with a 4.25 ERA.

Kuhl had a string of nine straight outings without allowing more than three runs come to a crashing halt in his last start, lasting only three innings and permitting five runs on eight hits in a loss to the Chicago Cubs. Kuhl won his previous two starts, going six runs in each and allowing a combined three runs at Milwaukee and Philadelphia. He gave up three runs on four hits in a two-inning stint versus the Cardinals on Sept. 5.

The Cardinals will counter Kuhl with Michael Wacha. Right hander Wacha has a 4.93 ERA to go along with a 7-7 record this season.

Wacha has made only three appearances out of the bullpen since missing more than a month with soreness in his right shoulder and has done little to inspire confidence. He replaced an ineffective Jaime Garcia against Cincinnati on Monday and was battered for seven runs on nine hits over 2 2/3 innings. Wacha is 3-2 with a 3.83 ERA against the Pirates after seven strong innings on June 10 in which he yielded two runs on three hits.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Saint Louis Cardinals listed as XXX-moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at XX
