Michael Wacha vs. Matt Wisler

Scott Kane-USA TODAY Sports

The St. Louis Cardinals (63-34, .649) go for the sweep at Busch Stadium today against the Atlanta Braves (45-52, .464). With a series victory in the bag, manager Mike Matheny is giving some of his regulars the day off today. The result is a getaway day lineup even though the Cardinals aren't getting away to anyplace. They are slated to face the Reds in St. Louis tomorrow night. Nonetheless, I imagine Yadier Molina and Jhonny Peralta appreciate getting a break from the afternoon St. Louis heat. What's more, we'll finally get to see Stephen Piscotty at first base.
