The division rival St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs are set to renew hostilities on Saturday when they meet at Wrigley Field.

Adam Wainwright will be the starting pitcher for the Cardinals on this day. Right hander Wainwright is 11-5 this season with a 5.08 ERA.

It’ll be Jon Lester toeing the rubber for the Cubs in this contest. Left hander Lester is 6-6 with a 4.07 ERA so far this season.

Wainwright has won his last four starts and owns three quality starts in his last five outings. The 35-year-old beat the New York Mets last time out, allowing three runs (two earned) over 5 2/3 innings. Wainwright is 14-9 with a 4.09 ERA in 42 games (33 starts) against the Cubs and has split a pair of decisions against them this season.

After allowing 10 runs (four earned) and failing to get out of the first inning in his final start before the All-Star break, Lester threw a gem to start the second half. The 33-year-old held Atlanta to one run and three hits over seven innings on Monday to snap a two-start losing streak. Lester is 3-4 with a 2.37 ERA in 12 starts against the Cardinals but is winless in three meetings this season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 151-moneyline favorites versus the Cardinals, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

The Chicago Cubs’ six-game winning streak came crashing down in epic fashion, but the defending World Series champions will try to start a new run when they host the St. Louis Cardinals for the second of a three-game series Saturday. The Cubs didn’t lose any ground in the tightening National League Central race and remain one game behind Milwaukee, while the Cardinals closed within 3 1/2 of the Brewers.

The Cardinals scored nine runs with no outs in the eighth inning Friday to rally for an 11-4 win and snap the Cubs’ streak. It was a rare meltdown for Chicago’s bullpen, as the Cubs dropped to 43-3 when leading after seven innings. “You can’t open another can of pitchers,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters. “When you get behind like that, there’s tomorrow to be concerned with and also Sunday.” Chicago looks to left-hander Jon Lester for a deep outing Saturday to preserve that bullpen, which needed three pitchers in the eighth inning alone.

In their last action, Chicago was a 11-4 loser on the road against the Cardinals. Bettors on St. Louis at 124 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (15) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

Last time out for St. Louis, they were a 11-4 winner as they battled the Cubs on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Cardinals at 124 were rewarded, while the 15 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
