It was a day off for the Cardinals on Thursday. They open a weekend series in Chicago on Friday afternoon with their arch rival, the Cubs. First pitch is at 1:20 PM with Cards ace Adam Wainwright on the mound. On Wednesday, the Cardinals offense erupted for nine runs against the Milwaukee Brewers. Manager Mike Matheny hopes that is the game that gets the Redbirds offense going consistently.
