  • GDT Cardinals vs. D'backs 7:10pm CT

    After finally receiving a day off on Monday, the Cardinals return to the field at Busch Stadium on Tuesday evening. The off-day was St. Louis' first since July 25, a span of three weeks, and the Redbirds don't have another until Sept. 1.
    It's a grueling stretch of summer scheduling, and the Cards have handled it quite well for the most part. But the break was nonetheless welcome, and it may be a re-energized club that takes the field on Tuesday night.

    The Cardinals will send steady Jeff Suppan to the mound, as he tries to become the Cards' fourth 12-game winner. He's been going pretty well lately, though he's winless in his last four home starts. Suppan hasn't permitted more than four earned runs in a start since June 19, a span of nine games.

    Arizona will counter with lefty Brad Halsey, who has turned out to be a nice find. Acquired in the trade that sent Randy Johnson to the Yankees, Halsey has been consistently solid for the D-Backs all year. He has not allowed a home run in 114 at-bats by left-handers all season.

    Pitching matchup:
    ARI: LHP Brad Halsey
    • 8-8, 3.96 ERA in 2005
    • Has never faced STL

    STL: RHP Jeff Suppan
    • 11-8, 4.12 ERA in 2005
    • 1-0, 1.70 ERA vs. ARI in 2005

    Player to watch
    David Eckstein has been hitting with a little bit of power lately, especially at home. For the year, he's batting .290 at Busch with a .424 slugging percentage.

    Quotable
    "It's not the first time we've gotten hurt. We did well in 2002. ... We found a way to win." -- Manager Tony La Russa, on the injuries that have hit the Cardinals this year

                  Random notes/stats on the D'backs - FWIW:

                  In winning three of the first four games between these teams, The Cards held this good-hitting Arizona team to just a .202 average and just 7 runs scored. The Cards, themselves, only hit .242 in those four games).

                  Old friend Royce Clayton is on one of his hottest streaks. He’s hitting .366 since the All-Star break (37-101). Only 8 extra-base hits, though (6 doubles, 2 triples).

                  His middle-infield mate Craig Counsell is hitting .372 for the month of August (16-43).

                  Having a slow August to this point is Luis Gonzalez, hitting just .234 (11-47) with 1 homer and 5 RBIs.

                  Jose Valverde is the latest to hold the closer’s role for Arizona. So far, it looks like he intends to keep it. Since the All-Star break, Jose has 3 saves and a 0.57 ERA in 13 appearances.

                  Chris Snyder has caught the most innings in the NL without participating in a double play (724.2). Mike Mahoney – by contrast – has 2 in just 179.1 innings.
