The first-place St. Louis Cardinals (19-6, .760) host the second-place Chicago Cubs (13-11, .542) at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals lead the Cubs in the NL Central standings by 5.5 games. The Cubs are 1.5 games ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds, who are tied for third place in the division.

Before the game, former Cardinal and all-universe human being Jason Motte and Jon Jay, current Cardinal and by all accounts a nice person, promoted their charity bean-bag game in support of Motte's foundation:
