Cards/Phils Open Series

For full gameday, visit Phillies Nation.

The St. Louis Cardinals (52-46) play the Philadelphia Phillies (54-39).

Joel Pineiro (8-9, 3.09 ERA) gets the start vs. J.A Happ (7-0, 2.68).

The Phillies open the weekend series with the St. Louis Cardinals, who just acquired Matt Holliday. He will be in the lineup tonight, batting cleanup. It should be a very close series as both these teams lead their divisions.

There is a very confident feeling with J.A Happ on the mound. Happ has one career start against the Cardinals. He pitched 6.1 innings and allowed two earned runs on five hits and four walks.

Both pitchers, Happ and Joel Pineiro, do not tally many strikeouts, but have had very successful seasons by relying on their defense. In three career starts against the Phillies, Pineiro is 1-0 with a 2.33 ERA.
