    Cardinals (73-53) vs Braves (77-49) August 22-25


    Thursday, August 22, 7:15 PM Busch Stadium
    Paul Maholm, LHP
    9-9, 4.41 ERA
    Maholm will be activated from the DL to start for the Braves. He's been out with a bruised left wrist and hasn't pitched since July 20. Maholm pitched well in a rehab start for Class A Rome on Saturday and came away encouraged by his command.
    Joe Kelly, RHP
    4-3, 3.01 ERA
    Kelly has been the Cardinals' best pitcher as of late. He's not been scored upon in three of his last five starts, and the Cards have won six of the seven starts he has made since becoming a permanent rotation member.
    Friday, August 23, 7:15 PM Busch Stadium
    Kris Medlen, RHP
    10-11, 3.71 ERA
    Medlen worked three innings in Saturday's loss to the Nationals, throwing 47 pitches and giving up the decisive home run to Adam LaRoche in the 15th inning. He was bumped back in the rotation after the emergency relief appearance.
    Adam Wainwright, RHP
    14-7, 2.66 ERA
    After four winless starts, Wainwright became the second NL pitcher to reach 14 wins with a victory his last time out against the Cubs. He threw seven innings for the 21st time in his 26 starts and struck out 11 for the second time this year.
    Saturday, August 24, 6:15 PM CDT, Busch Stadium
    Julio Teheran, RHP
    10-6, 2.96 ERA
    Teheran had to scramble to navigate six shutout innings on Sunday, stranding two runners in each of the first three frames. He has allowed more than two earned runs in only one of his last seven road starts this season.
    Shelby Miller, RHP
    11-8, 2.98 ERA
    Miller faced the Braves once before, taking a loss on July 28 after throwing 5 2/3 innings, allowing six hits and three runs (two earned), with two walks and six strikeouts. The 22-year-old righty is 1-1 in August with a 4.41 ERA.
    Sunday, August 25, 1:15 PM CDT, Busch Stadium
    Brandon Beachy, RHP
    2-1, 4.50 ERA
    Through five starts, Beachy has thrown well in his comeback from Tommy John surgery. A couple of costly pitches have hurt him, but he's been reliable. His slider is improving to the point where it's becoming another weapon in his repertoire.
    Lance Lynn, RHP
    13-7, 3.97 ERA
    Lynn had good stuff in his last outing against the Crew, but he gave up five runs (three earned) in a decisive fourth-inning rally. He dropped to 13-7 after allowing six runs (four earned) on nine hits (all singles) in six innings of work.


    This is a lazy GDT.

    Good news is the braves lost Heyward who was raking, hopefully he makes a full recovery and I wish it had been something like he had the stomach flu, not that he got hit in the face by a pitch. But regardless, its a huge plus for us.

    We need 3 of 4 at least

    Holliday has been very good in the second half. Shows IMO that his first half was simply just a bad first half for a guy who's swing was out of sync, hitting like he always has this half of the season

    Wainwright went the distance and almost went a deep.

    Great game.

    Huge start by Wainwright. Our team really needed that sort of effort, and our bullpen really appreciates it. Should be a fun game to watch pitching wise, I like Tehran and Shelby is always great to watch.
