Marlins Vs. Cardinals: Streaking Miami Looks To Maintain Winning Ways In St. Louis

The up-and-down Miami Marlins (41-42) are riding high again, winners of seven of their last nine games entering Saturday's contest with the St. Louis Cardinals (44-40). A victory Saturday afternoon would get Miami back to .500 for the first time in three weeks.

Carlos Zambrano (4-6, 4.14 ERA) will take the mound for the Marlins. The right-hander is 0-3 with an 8.59 ERA in his last five starts, all Miami losses. He is, however, 6-0 with a 1.73 ERA in eight career starts at Busch Stadium.

Kyle Lohse (8-2, 2.80 ERA) will oppose Zambrano. The veteran has a 1.91 ERA over his last six starts, and has already defeated the Marlins twice this season, on April 4 and June 26.

Giancarlo Stanton is expected back in the lineup on Saturday for the Marlins for the first time in five days.
