The fans at New Busch Stadium will be treated to a game between the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals when they take their seats on Sunday.

R.A. Dickey will be the starting pitcher for the Braves on this day. Right hander Dickey is 7-7 this season with a 4.03 ERA.

It’ll be Michael Wacha toeing the rubber for the Cardinals in this contest. Right hander Wacha is 9-4 with a 3.70 ERA so far this season.

Dickey continues to provide the Braves rotation with stability, allowing three runs on three hits (two homers) in a victory Aug. 4 over Miami. The 42-year-old, who was given extra time between his last start and Sunday due to off days in Atlanta’s schedule, has posted a 2.22 ERA in his past nine starts while limiting opponents to a .224 batting average. Dickey faced the Cardinals on May 7 in Atlanta, getting a no-decision after allowing four runs on eight hits in six innings.

Wacha has lost just once in his past 12 starts, improving to 7-1 in that span by holding Kansas City to three runs on six hits over six innings Tuesday. That outing marks just the second time in his past eight starts he has surrendered more than two runs, posting an ERA of 2.22 over those starts with 52 strikeouts and 11 walks. Wacha pitched six innings against the Braves on May 7, giving up two runs on five hits with six strikeouts in a no-decision.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cardinals listed as 176-moneyline favorites versus the Braves, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

Rookie Paul DeJong launched his 17th homer in his 64th career game Saturday and has reached base in 18 of his past 21 games, finishing 2-for-3 as the Cardinals improved to 9-3 in August. The Braves are free falling, losing for the 18th time in 24 games since reaching .500 on July 16 and dropping a season-worst 12 games under .500 with Saturday’s loss. Atlanta’s rookie second baseman Ozzie Albies brings a four-game hitting streak into the series finale.
