D-backs vs. Cardinals: Joe Saunders Takes On Adam Wainwright In Game Two

The Arizona Diamondbacks will look to get back on track against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night. After dropping the series opener on Tuesday evening at Busch Stadium, the D-backs will turn to Joe Saunders. The Cardinals will counter with Adam Wainwright, who has been on quite the roll lately.

In his last three starters, Wainwright is 2-0 with a 1.64 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 22 innings. He has typically pitched well against Arizona throughout his career, going 4-3 with a 2.48 ERA over 40 innings of work.

Saunders hasn't been horrible the last few weeks, going 1-2 with a 3.59 ERA over 20 innings of work in his last three times on the mound. He's pitched just 8.1 innings in his career against the Cardinals, and he's gotten knocked around a bit.

First pitch from St. Louis is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. CST / 5:15 p.m. PST.
